The Great Commission is for every Christian. That’s what makes it Great! All of us, regardless of age, nationality, background, gender, or social status are equally called to share the Good News of Jesus-- first on our block, then our region, and then to the ends of the earth.
Here at Praying Pelican Missions, we take the Great Commission seriously. We want to see all kinds of people from all kinds of places mobilized like never before. With that vision in mind, we’ve been dreaming,
“How can we take what we’ve learned in our first 20 years as an organization and empower the whole church to go?"
"What barriers do we need to remove? How can we equip and send teams from places that don’t traditionally go?”
Those questions led us to start asking our church partners around the world questions many never considered. Why aren't you going on mission trips? What’s in your way? How can we help you?
What we learned was that many churches want to go, are called to the mission field, but lack the resources and know-how to make it happen.
And that’s where we know, with your help, PPM can help. The Global Access Fund will empower churches who are called to serve on the mission field with a way to send teams domestically and internationally. Imagine a church in Memphis who normally hosts mission teams going on a mission trip to Costa Rica? Or a church in remote Guatemala serving in another part of Guatemala? Or a Haitian congregation serving in the United States? The Global Access Fund allows you to come alongside churches and help make short-term missions accessible to all types of churches, regardless of where they live or what their income level. By trusting God with this vision we hope to see the Kingdom of God expand in new and powerful ways.
Some churches will need lots of financial support by way of full scholarships. But we’ve learned that most need a trip subsidy because they can raise some of the money but not all of it. When you come alongside them as a Global Access Fund donor these churches will experience a deep level of partnership from you before they even leave their home! Your gift to the Global Access Fund will help us partner with more churches in more places around the globe, places North Americans might not even have access to, to minister in ways we can’t imagine.
It’s big, audacious, and beautiful. But we believe it flows straight out of our DNA. Genuine Partnerships. Long-term Relationships. And Sustainable Ministry.
