The Great Commission is found in Matthew 28:19-20. It is something our church endeavors to carry out. Missionary work and the missionary support are important. This support for missions includes prayer, letters of encouragement, gifts, and offerings. A major portion of our budget is allocated to missions.
Our missionaries (see list below) are located in the United States and abroad. They are involved in a wide variety of ministries: Bible translating, Christian education, camp ministry, counseling, and Christian broadcasting, among others. Children, teenagers, and unreached people are the focal groups for some of the missionaries.
How to give to missions:
All missions giving at Wake Chapel must be designated. That is, if contributors don't specify anything on the memo line of their check, all giving will go to the general operational fund, and none will go toward missions.
Wake Chapel giving to the general fund has also been exceptionally generous, and needs to continue to support our programs and outreach, thanks to you all. We encourage people to prayerfully consider designating a portion of giving to missions. For example, if your total check is for $100, on the memo line you could designate "Missions $15, General Fund $85."
Our missions budget totals will be used to allocate your undesignated missions giving (like the $15 above) to each of our budgeted missions on a quarterly basis. Alternatively, if you wish to allocate some or all of your missions giving to one or more individual approved Wake Chapel missions agency, please feel free to do that. Just indicate the individual missions' names and amounts on the memo line of the check, based on how God moves your heart. All giving designated for an individual mission will be set aside directly for that mission, before undesignated missions giving is allocated.
