Ashworth Missions Emphasis Month 2019
We are extraordinarily blessed at Ashworth Church to have many nations represented in our church body! As a way to celebrate this unique gift and to highlight our commitment to the nations locally and globally, we want to do something a little different for Missions Emphasis Month this October. Our $15,000 goal this year is to support mission work in each of the countries represented within our church body. We have 11 nations represented at Ashworth and therefore want to support 11 ministries in those specific places. As we raise this $15,000, we are supporting medical missionaries, underground student movements, church planters who are empowering indigenous leaders and pastors, giving to business training and micro-loan ministries, serving some of the most vulnerable populations and providing care and education for kids orphaned by disease. We were delighted to connect with ministries through many of our church members and local connections as well as partner with our Converge network. Below is a list of the countries represented in our church and the description of the ministry we’ll be giving toward in that location. As you read this list, take a moment and thank God that he has made us a church of and for the nations and consider what your part in our $15,000 goal might be!
