From Associate Pastor David Schaller
What is WorldReach?
WorldReach is an invitation to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. More specifically, to be a part of the redemption story God is unfolding through our missions program at Church of the Open Door (COD)..
Every February we take two Sundays and the week in-between to focus on God’s unstoppable plan to plant His church among every tribe, people and language, and His Great Commission for each one of us to participate with Him in making disciples of all nations.
Whether you are new to our church and don’t know much about missions or you have been here for years and love supporting missions at COD, World Reach has something for everyone.
From Sunday morning missions-themed messages, to hearing firsthand from our missionaries as they share in smaller group settings what God is doing in their part of the world, to joining in the fun at our first annual Missions Throwdown kickoff event, you would be hard pressed to walk away from this week without having your heart moved toward what is on the heart of our heavenly Father – that the nations hear and believe the good news of His Son!
Please, please take me up on this invitation and join us in being a part of the story – you won’t regret it!
Your partner in the story,
