…and beyond

Global

We launch joyfully because joining God’s mission is our privilege.

Global Ministries’ mission is commitment to the urgent

and unfinished task of helping to make disciples

of the unreached people groups of the world.

FOR THE NATIONS

 

In line with Parkway’s vision to reach every man, woman, and child in greater
Austin, and beyond, with the gospel of Jesus Christ, our Global Ministry
exists to reduce lostness by multiplying genuine life in Christ locally
and globally based on the call of Acts 1:8.

1. We desire to empower gospel-driven believers to engage lost people.
2. We desire to pursue ministry multiplication to grow the body of Christ.
3. We desire to raise up the next globally-minded generation of disciples.

WHAT’S MY ROLE?

 

LEARN: Global Lunches

When Global Partners are in town, we love to host a lunch for them after church. This gives them an opportunity to share the work and ministry they are doing world-wide, and it gives our church family time to encourage them! Check back here for upcoming lunch registrations.

CARE: Barnabas Teams

When our Global Partners are serving on the field far from their original homes, life can become difficult keeping up with cultural and language barriers. That’s where Barnabas Teams come in! These Teams are made up of 8-10 people in our church family who want to encourage our Global Partners. Each team supports a different Global Partner (or Partner couple).

This may include sending hand-written notes, staying in touch through email, sending Pkwy swag and items from HEB they miss, etc. (This is not a commitment to support them with on going financial gifts. Global Partners are supported with offerings received from the church family congregation. This is more relational support focused.)

Sign up for more information!

GIVE: Financial Support

Our elders prayerfully and faithfully prioritize funds each year to go towards supporting our global partners financially. 10% of our total budget is committed to church planting and global ministries. Would you consider supporting the vision of reaching every man, woman, and child both locally and globally above and beyond your general tithe?
