To the ends of the earth
Missions is not optional or a side activity – it's both the purpose and privilege of the Church. We're called to go into all the earth, both near and far, to preach the good news of Jesus. This command reminds us that as disciples we're not called to be consumers, but to be co-laborers working to extend the kingdom of God.
The Great Commission is a call to change the world.
Our Story + God's Glory
In 2011, the leadership of Rockwall Pres began to pray and ask God for his glory to be revealed among us. We began to ask ourselves tough questions as we reflected on who we were as a church and the impact we were having:
- If Rockwall Pres ceased to exist tomorrow, would anyone outside our church even notice?
- Do we simply give a little support to a lot of places and ultimately have no meaningful impact?
- How are we to be faithful to the work to which Jesus calls us?
Soon a new vision began to emerge. We wanted to be a church sacrificially invested in the Great Commission. We wanted our commitment to a people and place to last our lifetimes.
We serve in one of the darkest and poorest parts of the world.
We consider this
Where we go + what we do
We serve in two locations in South Asia by proclaiming the gospel in both word and deed. Here we serve orphans and abandoned children, women and children working in the sex trade, and pastors planting churches. We devote ourselves to their good by digging water wells, building churches, supporting children's homes, and providing food and resources.
Since 2011, God has been faithful and moved in powerful ways to reveal his glory among us. Lives have been changed, outrageous goals have been met, and funds have been raised far beyond our capacity. We are emboldened to continue the work as we reflect on what God has done thus far:
CHILDREN'S HOME PURCHASED
WATER WELLS DUG
We believe this is only the beginning – it's an invitation to see more of the power of God. The people we love and serve in South Asia have become precious to us, because through them God has changed our lives at Rockwall Pres. Missions has found its way into the heartbeat of our church's culture. We wouldn't have it any other way – to God be the glory.
We're going back. We invite you to come and see for yourself.
