The Missions Ministry: Exists at Maranatha to oversee the ministries that deal with reaching out evangelistically to the world and to encourage the Church body to themselves participate in these ministries. Our focus is primarily cross-cultural.
Some specific examples:
1) Mobilizing support for missionaries in encouragement, prayer, and finances. This mobilization is seen through encouraging and facilitating regular visits to Maranatha by the missionaries we support. Included in those visits are short presentations to the congregation about what is happening in their ministry and ways the congregation can pray.
2) Maintaining booklets, "Praying for our Missionaries" that give the congregation an intentional, well-informed way to participate in Missionary work in the important way of prayer.
3) Facilitating Missions work opportunities for Maranatha through short-term missions trips and outreach to local unreached peoples.
