Pathway Church is determined to play our part in helping the hurt, the lost, and taking the Gospel to the ends of the Earth. We have partners in 5 continents, over 16 countries, and support over 30 missionaries or projects all around the globe. Our partners are involved in taking Christ to unreached people groups, international church planting, holistic ministries, and biblical education among many other ministries.
Many people, especially college students and young adults, take internships in the United States and across the globe to do missions work—these can be anywhere from 2-12 months. You can also take part in Global Outreach by joining a Serving Trip Team through Pathway.
Pray: Ask God to show you for whom you should pray for. Praying is one of the best ways you can be involved with global missions! The power of intentional, fervent prayer in Jesus’s name is amazing. Visit our missions blog and face book page to read about our missionaries and lift them up in prayer. Contact the missions department so we can help get you signed up to receive monthly newsletters and email updates from our missionaries. The letters will keep you updated on their ministries and provide you with specific prayer requests they have.
Give: Mission work is made able by those who “send” missionaries with financial resources. If you tithe any money to Pathway Church then you are already a sender! Every dollar that you give to Pathway Church, a percent of that is used to advance His Kingdom all over the world. Thank you for your giving. Your giving is truly making a difference right here in Wichita and to the ends of the Earth!
Encourage: Consider sending a care package or encouragement cards to missionaries. Welcome missionaries home when they are in town on furlough by sharing a meal, a car, a guest room, or other creative ways to make them feel appreciated. Come here them talk on the weekends when they visit Pathway Church.
Volunteer: Do you want to be a part of supporting the work of the Global Outreach Department at Pathway Church? We are always looking for volunteers to help out in a variety of ways. Your first step before volunteering is visiting Starting Point. Learn more and register online!
