Jeff Cannell, Pastor of Central Vineyard in Ohio, tells of his most recent trip to Cambodia. He says, “We sent people out in groups of three on prayer walks. My group literally prayed at each fork on our paths whether to go left or right...we ended up in a marsh containing a shelter…”
With the tears that flowed that Sunday before the trip, a fresh wind has blown through our congregation. Worship has been more intimate, prayer ministry has been more powerful, and ownership of our mission from our neighborhood to the nations has continued to rise. That’s Local Church Based Mission in action, as the whole church reaps the reward of the local church engaging in mission together to other local churches.
