How Do I Get My Pastor Engaged in Missions? Cracking the Code

Thursday @ 3:30pm

It's been said, "When it comes to missions in the church, the pastor either holds the key to the front door or holds the padlock."

Mission Pastors and mission teams that operate without buy-in from key church leaders often struggle to build momentum. In most churches, until senior pastors have embraced a mission vision for their churches, missions will likely remain in the margins. Simply put, unless church leaders shed the spiritual blood that forging a world-changing vision requires, they probably won't become champions of that vision. So how do we crack the code of pastoral engagement in missions?

Matthew Ellison

President and Co-Founder

Matthew was rescued by Jesus when he was 23 years old. In 1993 he began serving as the Mission Pastor at Calvary of Albuquerque, NM where he graduated from their School of Ministry. He founded an international short-term ministry called “LifeLine Missions” that gave thousands across the country the opportunity to experience the mission field firsthand. Now, he coaches local churches to discover and use their unique gifts to make Christ known among all nations. Matthew lives in Albuquerque, NM with his wife, Renee, and their three children, Matthew, Caleigh and Landin.
