World Outreach: About Engage 2025
Going Where The Church Isn't. . .
Engage 2025 Goal and Core Values!
The goal of the Engage 2025 EPC World Outreach initiative is to see ten Church planting teams sent out by EPC churches to some of the 220+ Unengaged Muslim People Groups by 2025. We believe small networks of Churches banding together are the most effective way for us to see these teams become a reality.
We operate by these core governing values:
We go together to hard places where others are not.
We build Biblical community in culturally relevant ways.
We meet needs.
We strive for spiritual growth.
We pledge transparency.
And we do it all for the glory of God.
We believe that many young people of this denomination are looking for a God-sized challenge and they will be the ones to see this task completed. A key part of our effort is to provide them with exposure and training through short term opportunities that lead to long term service.
