Our Triune God calls us to participate in our local community in order to build his global church person by person. Loving God deeply has always meant loving others like ourselves and so, filled with the message of Jesus and the joy of the Holy Spirit, we make it our mission at Emmanuel to give, pray and go where God would send us. We know the privilege of sharing this most life-changing news, whether it be at home or around the world, is not an option for any Christ-follower. We make it a priority at Emmanuel to strategically partner with, pray for, and send people to be the feet and hands of God. Part of the way we do this is through local and global partnerships.

Three ways.

There are three ways we participate in God’s global activity throughout the world, we GIVE, we PRAY, and we GO.

Give

When you give financially to Emmanuel, you support several Local and Global Partners showing and telling the life-changing news of Jesus. At Emmanuel, we strive to give 15% of our budget to these kinds of gospel partnerships, so when you give to the local budget, you’re also giving to missions. This giving helps us hold the rope for many Partners in Barrie and around the world.

Pray

Good partnerships means developing relationships with those we are committed to supporting. It is important for our Global and Local Partners to know that we are praying for them. We do this in several ways, Zoom calls, prayer requests, and updates. Follow us on social media or subscribe to our prayer prompter in order to learn of new prayer requests.

Go

We send out short term teams from our congregation every year to serve alongside various Global Partners.

In addition, we encourage all members of Emmanuel to seriously consider whether or not God wants them to serve cross culturally long term to reach those who have yet to hear the gospel.
