 International Missions

AT SOUTHLAKE WE TAKE SERIOUSLY CHRIST’S COMMISSION TO BUILD BRIDGES OF HOPE AND GRACE TO THE WORLD.

We currently partner with multiple international missionaries, all of whom willingly act as the hands and feet of Christ, while faithfully sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If you’d like to be involved with any of these ministries or missionary’s work, please contact xxxx, to discuss your interest. Opportunities to support the missionaries financially, through prayer, and in some cases, through short-term trips, are available. We’d love to hear your ideas for encouraging and supporting their work!

The opportunity to share her work experience as a second-career missionary inspired her to serve with the Mission to the World team in Bangkok, Thailand.
