"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."   Hebrews 12:1-2  NKJV

What are you waiting for?

Get involved in Mission - it's your calling!

 

"Open Brethren are noted for their commitment to missionary work. In the earliest days of the Plymouth Brethren movement, Anthony Norris Groves became one of the earliest 'faith missionaries', travelling to Baghdad in 1829 to preach the gospel and the Bible without the aid of an established missionary society. Many later Plymouth Brethren missionaries took the same stance, and included notable missionary pioneers such as:

George Müller - founder of orphanages in Bristol, England
Dan Crawford - Scottish missionary to central Africa
James Hudson Taylor - missionary to China and founder of the China Inland Mission
Charles Marsh - missionary to Algeria
Jim Elliot, Ed McCully, Roger Youderian, Pete Fleming - missionaries to Ecuador killed by the Huaorani tribe

While the majority of Open Brethren missionaries do not belong to a missionary society, there are a number of supporting organisations that give help and advice for missionaries: in the UK, Echoes of Service magazine, Medical Missionary News and the Lord's Work Trust are notable organisations. Today, missionaries are found all over the world, with high concentrations in Zambia and Southern Africa, Brazil, India, Western Europe and South East Asia."

What Will Jesus Ask?


The Lord Jesus won't ask what kind of car you drove - He'll ask where you went and how many people you drove who didn't have transport.
 
The Lord won't ask how big your house was - He'll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.
 
The Lord won't ask about the clothes you had in your wardrobe - He'll ask how many people you helped to clothe.
 
The Lord won't ask how high your salary was - He'll ask if you compromised your witness and brought shame on His name to obtain it.
 
The Lord won't ask what your job title was - He'll ask if you performed your job to the best of your ability.
 
The Lord won't ask how many friends you had - He'll ask how many people found you to be a true friend.
 
The Lord won't ask in what neighbourhood you lived - He'll ask how you treated your neighbours.
 
The Lord won't ask about the colour of your skin - He'll ask about the content of your character.
 
The Lord won't ask how much you suffered - He'll ask how you reacted to that suffering and sort His strength.

Jesus won't ask why it took you so long to seek salvation - He'll lovingly take you to your mansion in heaven, and not to the gates of Hell.

God won't ask how much time you had on earth and how you enjoyed it - He will ask what you did with the time you had, and how much treasure is waiting for you in heaven.

"What is also pleasing about Open Brethren is their commitment to missionary work. It is estimated, for example, that one per cent of the total number of members in Brethren assemblies are serving on the mission field. By modern standards, this is in excess of almost every Christian denomination. Operation World reports that Brethren fellowships in Canada, USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand together have 1223 missionaries. But, in addition, there are many national workers as well as workers from other countries involved in world mission. The position is that several thousand members are currently working in mission."

Mobile Mission Maintenance

 

Through MMM, teams of volunteers are working to help build up the kingdom of God

– brick by brick, stone by stone, project by project – as we support ministries across the world. 

It’s the kind of stuff that literally changes lives …and you can be part of it! 

 

MMM is an international mission organisation which supports Christian ministries by providing building, maintenance and other practical services.  While we design, build, engineer, repair, paint, patch and generally make sure buildings and facilities are up to scratch, the ministries we support can get on with the vital work they are called by God to do.  And that makes a real difference to people’s lives!  We operate in some 30 countries including Australia, the South Pacific, South-East Asia and parts of Africa, helping a whole range of people, involved in a wide variety of ministries. These include health, education, outreach, evangelism and church planting ministries, local church work and other faith missions.  If you’re a practical person who wants to serve God and enjoy a life-changing experience, MMM is the perfect place for you.

International Brethren Conferences on Mission

 

 

Thanks to the remarkable outreach of Brethren churches and missionaries over the last 150 years, there are congregations related to the Brethren movement in over 120 countries in the world. There are more than 20,000 such congregations with an attendance of perhaps 2 million people each Sunday. In some countries, these local churches have seen remarkable growth in recent years, both in terms of numbers of churches and overall numbers of people involved. The purpose of the International Brethren Conferences on Mission (IBCM) is to bring together every four years the national leaders of local churches connected with the Brethren movement across the world for spiritual reflection, fellowship and, we pray, renewed experience of the Lord. The overall goal is the mutual encouragement of leaders in the movement in the different countries. To encourage the development of regional conferences with similar objectives leaders from Brethren churches throughout the world are welcome at the conferences.
