We believe that all followers of Christ are commanded to take part in the Great Commission. However, we also recognize that some may be specifically equipped with gifts such as evangelism and teaching. The Missions Team is an organized group of men and women who feel passionate about local and foreign missions. Their goal is that disciples would be made and that the nations would "be glad and sing for joy" (Psalm 67:4).
The Missions Team is currently in prayer about a country in which Orrville Baptist Church would annually minister to with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Missions Team also helps promote local and nationwide mission opportunities that are made available. Each week, the Missions Team takes part in a mission-oriented activity, whether it be reaching out to strangers or contacts gathered through other teams.
The Missions Team is an extremely flexible group that takes part in varying activities week to week. One week, the entire team may take part in one activity, and during another week, they may break up into smaller groups. In any case, there is no shortage of work for the cause of Christ!
If you feel gifted in evangelism, have a burden for the lost, or feel passionate about taking the Gospel to the nations, then consider being a part of the Missions Team at Orrville!
