Missions “GO” Team

GO Team Report – JULY 2018

The GO Team’s Mission and Purpose is to assist every TBA church to become an Acts 1:8 church; that is to effectively engage the Unreached in our Jerusalem (our neighborhoods), our Judea (our region and state), our Samaria, (our country), and the remotest parts of the world (places where the Name of Jesus has never been heard).

GO TEAM MEMBERS:

  • BROOKS AND BRENDA HARRELL
  • ROBERT AND LINDA SNOWDON
  • DEWEY AND KATHY AIKEN
  • SHANNON COMPTON
  • JEREMY JACKSON
  • CHRIS SCHLENDER
  • DAVE NIMER
  • ALAN PERRY

IN APRIL MEMBERS OF FOUR OF OUR TBA CHURCHES PARTICIPATED IN A PRAYERWALKING MISSION TO A COMMUNIST COUNTRY IN SOUTHEAST ASIA. THE TEAM HIRED MOTORBIKES TO GET TO SEVERAL REMOTE VILLAGES THAT TO OUR KNOWLEDGE HAVE NEVER BEEN PRAYED OVER. WE BELIEVE THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE PROCESS OF FUTURE HARVESTS IN THESE VILLAGES.

CURRENTLY A TEAM OF NINE FROM FOUR TBA CHURCHES IS SERVING OUR IMB MISSIONARIES IN THE SOUTHEAST ASIAN COUNTRY OF THOUSANDS OF ISLANDS. THE TEAM IS PROVIDING CHILDCARE FOR OUR MISSIONARIES AS THEY PARTICIPATE IN TWO WEEKS OF INTENSE TRAINING IN REACHING UNENGAGED UNREACHED PEOPLE GROUPS.

AT LEAST THREE TEAMS HAVE GONE TO THE PITTSBURGH AREA THE PAST QUARTER STRENGTHENING TBA’S PARTNERSHIP IN THE REGION. THE TEAMS HAVE WORKED WITH DIFFERENT PASTORS AND CHURCH PLANTS. THE TEAM’S MINISTRIES HAVE INCLUDED PRAYER WALKING, CONDUCTING SURVEYS, HAVING GOSPEL CONVERSATIONS, DOING REPAIR WORK AND CONSTRUCTION OF FACILITIES AND GREATLY ENCOURAGING THE PASTORS.

MISSION OPPORTUNITIES:

INTERNATIONAL: SOUTHEAST ASIA –  NOVEMBER: CONVERSATIONAL EVANGELISM, PRAYER WALKING, DISCIPLEING BELIEVERS AND HELPING INDIGENIOUS CHURCHES ADOPT UNREACHED PEOPLE GROUPS ON THE ISLAND WHERE THE ARE LOCATED. COST WILL BE APPROXIMATELY $2500. EXACT DATES WILL WILL BE SET SOON.

NATIONAL: MONTANA – ONE OF OUR TBA PASTORS IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON PUTTING TOGETHER A TRIP TO MONTANA TO ASSIST PASTOR ALLEN JAMES IN TRANSFORMING A BUILDING INTO A HOME FOR ABUSED WOMEN. PASTOR ALLEN WAS SENT FROM TBA TO PLANT A CHURCH IN HAMILTON, MONTANA SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND WE HAVE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF SENDING SEVERAL DIFFERENT TYPES OF TEAMS TO ASSIST THE CHURCH EVERY YEAR SINCE, INCLUDING SUMMER INTERNS THE PAST COUPLE YEARS. WE ARE HOPING THIS TEAM WILL BE MADE UP MEMBERS FROM SEVERAL TBA CHURCHES. DATES AND DETAILS WILL BE PUBLISHED AS SOON AS ARRANGEMENTS ARE MADE.

PITTSBURGH: – THROUGH THE PARTNERSHIP IN THE PITTSBURGH AREA THERE IS OPPORTUNITY FOR MULTIPLE TRIPS ALL THROUGH THE YEAR. THERE ARE NEEDS FOR TEAMS FROM SEVERAL DIFFERENT CHURCH PLANTS AND ALL ARE EAGER TO HAVE TEAMS COME AND HELP THEM REACH THE COMMUNITIES WHERE GOD HAS PLANTED THEM WITH THE GOSPEL. THERE ARE TRIPS FOR EVERY ONE; FROM CONSTRUCTION TO EVANGELISM, FROM VBS TO SERVICE PROJECTS IN THE COMMUNITIES. IF YOUR CHURCH HAS ANY INTEREST AT ALL IN PARTICIPATING IN THIS WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY GOD HAS GIVEN US TO PARTICIPATE IN KINGDOM GROWTH CONTACT THE TBA OFFICE OR ALAN @ alan7perry@gmail.com.
