At Redeemer, we are deeply passionate about the glory of God. We strive to be people that desire to bring God glory in Lubbock and the rest of the world among every people group. (Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:18-20). We have a huge vision for the nations that would not be possible without the movement of the Holy Spirit. We desire to send out teams to work overseas among those that do not have a gospel witness among them. We want to see churches started in some of the least Christian parts of the planet. By the year 2020 we are asking God to send Redeemer people to join or lead 20 church planting teams among the unreached.
We do this by discipling our people in a variety of ways:
Perspectives– this class takes place every fall. Perspectives opens our eyes to what God has been and is doing around the world. God desires that all tribes, tongues, and peoples know him.
Missionary Training Program– this one year intensive training is designed for those individuals who are 1-3 years out from going to the mission field. The MTP will teach you doctrine, spiritual disciplines, and how to engage the lost with the gospel. If you are interested in MTP, please send Spencer an email at email@example.com.
SEND Redeemer– these short term trips overseas are for you to see first hand the need for churches in different places and cultures. For more information go to this link: SEND REDEEMER. To apply follow this link: Apply.
Local Global Involvement
At the same time, we believe that being on mission starts right here in Lubbock, Texas! It makes no sense to go to the ends of the earth if we aren’t going to our neighbors first. This is why we feel that every member in the church should be missional right here. That’s why we started the Cultural Exhange. You can sign up for the Cultural Exchange at Redeemer today. The CulEx is a partnership with the International Cultural Center at Texas Tech University. We host students in our home for meals, become their American family, and help them learn how to live in our country well. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information regarding the CulEx or internationals.
