Africa & Ecuador

Hudson Taylor, the great missionary to China, once said “The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed.”  How significant did Jesus consider His Great Commission?  SOO significant that in expecting us to obey it, He repeated it 5 ways in 5 different books (Matt. 28:18-20, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:44-49, John 20:21, Acts 1:8)!!!  Thus why William Carey, pioneer missionary to India, said “To know the will of God, we need an open Bible and an open map.”  Having opened our Bibles and our maps, we at Crossway take the Great Commission very seriously; it is the very heart of what we do & why we exist.  Our goal for every member is to “Learn how to fulfill the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ by building disciples of Christ, each one who will be able to reproduce others of the same kind, and thus will multiply world visionary, world impacting disciples of Christ, who will go to the ends of the earth to the end of time.”  Well on our way to doing so, we currently have contacts in 5 continents & well over 20 countries, with our most recent emphasis on South America (Ecuador) & Africa (Kenya & Uganda).
