Standing in the gap in prayer for those with limited or no access to the Gospel
“All of your works will thank you, Lord, and your faithful followers will praise you. They will speak of the glory of your kingdom; they will give examples of your power. They will tell about your mighty deeds and about the majesty and glory of your reign. For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations.”
Psalm 145:10-13 NLT

The DNA of the NALC is to make disciples. As it has been said: “We should walk so close to the master, that we wear the dust of his footsteps upon our robes…” This describes well what following our Lord Jesus ought to look like. In this chaotic and thorn-filled world, it is not difficult to be distracted and lulled away from intimacy with the Lover of our souls, to that of the world. It is always healthier and life-giving when we walk alongside each other in mutual edification and consolation. It is always better to have a fellow traveler with you.

As we continue through this season of Pentecost, we are celebrating God’s goodness and faithfulness. In 1 Peter 2:6 we read:
For it stands in Scripture: “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”
There are many discouraging things that we face today in this world: a continuing global pandemic, civil unrest, political instability throughout the world, and natural disasters. But these things should not come as a surprise to us since the fall in Genesis 3. We do not ignore the challenges, but rather, we proclaim the faithfulness and goodness of our God. We proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ which does not change, even in the midst of a changing world. And we know that other things may be shaken and fall away, that we rest securely because of the unshakable cornerstone. We rejoice in the privilege that God has called us into mission together as living stones, built upon the rock that is Jesus Christ.

The Great Commission Society’s Mission Connectors team is about encouraging congregations and mission districts to make relational mission connections. The vision of the NALC that every congregation is in relationship with at least one local, one domestic, and one global mission partnership. Our team helps by preparing mission-focused resources and training, being available to coach leaders and teams, and by calling every mission district and mission region, at least once a year. The purpose of these calls is to pray with the leaders, to hear how the Holy Spirit is moving in their district, and to encourage them as they serve God’s kingdom.

Our mission is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a world that is in desperate need of the Good News. We propose to do this by networking congregations and individuals who have a passion for the proclamation of the Gospel and a commitment to the calling of the Great Commission. In Matthew 28, we read: “And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Mission is the driver – the force, the inspiration behind everything that we do. Everything that we do, if we don’t have mission attached to it, is going to be meaningless. The church exists in obedience and fulfillment of the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
