Missions start at home, but it doesn’t end there.
Ekklēsía Iwigá is fortunate to be able to support many missionaries both locally and abroad. Please join us in prayer for their work for the Lord.
You may ask, "What is the job of a missionary?" The great commission was given by Christ to the Church in Mark 16:15 was to '"go into all the world and preach the gospel." You may then ask "What is the Gospel?" Well, the Gospel is, click HERE.
Outreach helps the Exarchate understand that everything we are and do is evangelism and outreach. Maintains a system by which those who visit Iwigá's worship receive a timely response to their interest in our ministry, and we express our interest in having them join us. Design thoughtful ways to reach out to the people of our neighborhood and part of the Bay Area with the love that God has for them in Jesus.
