You Are Sent

Each week we conclude our worship gathering with, “You are sent.” That is our reminder to one another that the gospel is never intended to stay just with us. Jesus told his disciples to take the great hope of the gospel all the way to the ends of the earth (Matthew 28:18-20), and each generation of believers has sought to advance that mission for the past 2,000 years. This is our time. With the joy and power the gospel gives us, Mercy Church is committed to taking the gospel to people groups who have never heard it.

Our Mobilization Team is passionate about helping you find your place in God’s mission and would love to talk with you about taking your next step in Mercy’s Missions Pipeline. Check out the pipeline below!

 

Missions Pipeline: Discover, DEvelop, Deploy

Discover: Mission of God Class

Introductory class unpacking the Biblical basis for missions and the current state of the world, designed to open your eyes to the heart of God to redeem every nation and to help you learn your place in His mission. Class is already in session for 2022. Please join us next fall!

 

 

Discover: Disciple-Making Teams (DMT)

Disciple Making Teams, or “DMTs,” exist at Mercy to glorify God by equipping team members to make disciples of all nations as a result of individual abiding in Christ and corporate teamwork and worship. As a team member, you will focus on cross-cultural disciple-making and learn practical ways to engage in the Great Commission. Fall, Spring, Summer, 10-weeks. Interested in joining a DMT? Let us know here.

Develop: Go Groups

These groups exist to equip disciple-makers who intend to move overseas within the next one to three years. They provide a clear and proven pathway for Mercy members (as well as members of other churches in our area) to prepare for a life of disciple-making  and church-planting among the unreached. 9 months. DMTs are a recommended prerequisite to joining a Go Group. 

Deploy

While in Go Group training, the Mobilization Team will help connect you to a strategic sending agency, team, and location and begin the process of on-boarding to deploy within 1-3 years of completing training.

Go National or International

National Outreach

We believe, just as Christ modeled for us, that the best way to advance his kingdom and fulfill the great commission is by planting churches. Mercy Church is the fruit of this very belief, planted to reach the city of Charlotte with the gospel by the Summit Church in Durham, North Carolina.

International Outreach

Mercy Church believes that God’s plan for taking the gospel to the ends of the earth will be carried out through healthy local churches. That’s why our short-term trips are sent to serve alongside strategic church planters and long-term missionary partners both here in the US and around the world. 

Local Outreach

The Local Outreach Ministry at Mercy Church exists to send disciples to display the gospel to the marginalized communities of our city. Serving alongside like-minded partner organizations, we seek to love others as Jesus loves us.
