MISSIONS Missions

We believe that God is at work in the world and He invites us to join Him in what He is already doing. We also believe that everyone has a part to play in God’s unfolding mission and encourage people to discern how God is leading them to be missional with their lives. 

We are very grateful for the missionary energy that we have in our church family at McKernan Baptist Church.  It gives our lives such dignity when we join God in what He is already doing in the world through our prayer, giving, and going.

The McKernan Mission's Magazine tells some of the stories of those missionaries and missions agencies we support through our missions budget. As you read these profiles and stories, may God encourage your heart and fire up your imagination about practical steps you can take to keep in step with His Spirit.

We are all invited to be on mission with God, and trust you will continue to pray fervently for all of us as a church family to be a good and godly neighbour here and around the world.

Thank you to the many hidden heroes who faithfully walk in step with God's Spirit and are on mission with God.

For more information about missions, please contact Pastor Dan.
