Developing a Culture of Mission In Your Church E-Book
The intent of this E-Book is to give you a tool for teaching on missions and mobilizing your church. You can use these for preaching to a congregation, adapt them for youth group lessons, do a Sunday school or small group series on missions, or whatever you please.
4 Quarter Fundraising Plan
A workable plan for helping your team raise support for your upcoming mission trip.
From growing up in south Texas in a small town on the beautiful Gulf Coast, to moving overseas after college to start a career teaching in international schools as a “missionary teacher,” I always had the desire to grow relationships and share God with those I meet. I thought teaching was my ticket around the world, and I was blessed by my many adventures teaching Kindergarten in Russia and Italy.
I was given the honor to further my studies and earn a Masters in International Education while studying in Spain and Switzerland, thinking I’d make a lifelong career out of teaching overseas as a long-term missionary, but at 29 years old, I met the love of my life, Jason, and my life quickly changed!
Many know him as the Founder of Thirst Missions, and I saw a man who had dedicated his life to ministry and had a passion to serve through sending mission teams to partner with churches in Belize at the time.
It wasn’t until I became a part of the Thirst Missions Family that I truly realized all the details that go into planning a safe and well led mission trip!
What started out as a part time position, helping out our Office Manager while my youngest daughter started Kindergarten, quickly evolved into a full time position where I currently help manage the office, meet with pastors and mission boards to tell them more about Thirst Missions, and when needed, lead teams in the field.
I feel truly blessed to be surrounded by so many people who love us and support us. I’m grateful we can have our family join us in ministry, and pray that one day our daughters feel led to continue the journey with us.
I am most grateful for the “job” I get to do. Encouraging pastors, helping prepare group leaders, and ultimately reaching out to the unreached and telling them more about who God is and his love for them. It’s a dream job for most, and I don’t take my position lightly.
We at Thirst Missions are on a quest to further God’s kingdom, and I am asking you to join us on the journey by bringing a team of your own.
I would love to tell you more about the ministries in our locations, whether you are hoping to serve in Alaska, Appalachia, Belize, or Puerto Rico. Let us do the planning so you can be ready to serve!
