“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2
Since coming to know God, our heart’s desire has been to offer ourselves as a living sacrifice to Him in worship. When God brought our paths together, we were committed not to conform to the normal patterns of the world around us. As we have journeyed with Him, He has been transforming us and faithfully revealing His will. God has given us His heart for all peoples, and we are excited to join Him in the Spice Islands for His glory. Countless inhabitants of these islands have never encountered the one true God. In light of this, the Lord has moved us to join a team of other believers committed to starting gospel movements among each of the 234 least-reached people groups within the Spice Islands Initiative in our generation.
Toward that end, our vision as a family is to cultivate a healthier and stronger faith, family, and fellowship among local believers, encouraging and equipping them to make disciples within their spheres of influence. The strategy we are prayerfully pursuing is two-fold:
- weekly Discovery Bible Study with local believers (to grow faith, family, and fellowship)
- inviting not-yet-believing friends to have spiritual conversations and find common ground (to model disciple-making)
As a team, we are committed to igniting disciple-making movements, using the "business as transformation" model to provide access into closed-off communities. We ask you to pray about how you could partner with us in this endeavor. God may be calling you or someone you know to join us!
