Bwana Safiwe! (Praise the Lord!),
Becky and I have been in active ministry for almost 30 years. If you would have asked us 20, or even 10, years ago what it meant to be a missionary, we would have given you a traditional response. You know, a family packs up all their belongings and moves to the mission field God directed them to go. They would live, endure and even die among the native inhabitants, whether it be in some deep remote, rural or even oppressed region. Additionally, we would have adamantly opposed mission work.
Jesus instructs us in Matthew 28:19-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Notice His call and command to mission is making disciples locally, regionally and globally for all Christ followers. As believers, we are enlisted into ministry and mission, an apostolic call, which begins “where you are” and fulfilled “as you go” in the every day rhythms of your life . We must engage all people regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, tribe, tongue, region or political affiliation with the Gospel of the Kingdom. It is Christ in us, our hope of Glory, flowing through us by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Even as local Pastors, Trinity Christian Center; business owners, LifeWay Technologies, and bloggers, jamesmillerjr & beckyjmiller, we live out mission, community and discipleship in our daily life rhythms.
We need your prayers for our family and this ministry, as well as your financial support. If you are an individual, ministry or church that is looking to partner with us, let’s get connected. If you desire to see your church be more missional, let’s build a relationship. Finally, if you are not the traveling type, but you want to be a part of something greater, Kingdom stuff, this is a good place to start. I heard Peter J. Daniels say one time, “your money is minted personality, it goes where you are unable to”. Not everyone is called to go on the mission field, but ALL are called be missional, serve, support, Donate and send. Check our Calendar to see where we are going or schedule us to share our mission journey to your church or ministry team. For more information, Connect with us.
Humbly serving the King,
James and Becky Miller
