Boots on the Ground is a movement to “Go” outside the walls of the church
and be a force of transformation in our community. We’ll cleanup yards,
haul trash, repair fences, paint, and perform light construction projects
but the most important part of Boots on the Ground is working alongside
and building relationships with people in our community because ultimate
transformation is not a project. God transforms people’s lives.

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.
We believe that Christians are called to be involved with Global Outreach in one of two ways:
“Go” or “Send”
It is exciting to know that several people who have grown up at Pathway Church are now missionaries in places like India, Mongolia, Kenya, and Orlando. However, not everyone is called to be a long-term missionary. If you are interested in learning more about being a missionary or would just like to start the conversation about Global Outreach work, email the Global Outreach Department.
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.
We provide many opportunities for you to be a sender and help to encourage and support our missionaries.
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 Facebook page to read about our missionaries and lift them up in prayer. Contact the Global Outreach 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! A percent of every dollar that you give to Pathway Church is used to advance God's Kingdom all over the world. Your generosity is truly making a difference right here in Sedgwick County 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 one of our campuses.
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!
Are you interested in learning more about global missions, but don’t know where to start? Here are some steps to help you in your journey.
Community Health Evangelism workers are involved with migrant families from rural areas as they enter into city life. They work with community centers, churches, and schools loving the migrants who are often disadvantaged. Pray for the protection of the workers, growth of churches, and education of the children.
In a remote part of Asia we partner with a national missionary taking the Gospel to the many tribal unreached groups in this area. This protected state is home to over 100 different tribal groups, mainly Buddhist or animist or a combination of the two. Pray for additional national workers who will be able to work in this protected state and the growth of the newly established churches.
Akivdi region. There are three unreached people groups in this region. Pathway is partnering with India Gospel League to bring the light of Jesus into this rural area. The Akivdi region is the third region that Pathway has helped complete church saturation. Our partnership includes digging water wells, building Life Centers, and supplying Barefoot Pastors with needed materials as well as sending Serving Teams to encourage the workers.
The village of Mabatini in the Mathare Valley has been adopted by Pathway. We have helped bring clean water to the village, purchase land for a school, and construct a temporary community center. Through Community Health Evangelism, workers reach into the homes of the people caught in this slum. Serving teams have assisted in micro-finance development, encouragement of leaders, and teaching of children.
We partner with the Church Planters Training Center which trains the tribal peoples of this region to evangelize and plant churches among the rural peoples. Each training class has representatives of several tribes. After initial training, the center’s staff visits the planters and their churches. A holistic approach is used giving training in business, health, and other training as needed. To date, over 50 churches have been planted. Two graduate families are being financially added by Pathway.
Along the tributaries of the Amazon live the River People, a genetic mixture of Indian and Portuguese ancestry. Their religion is a mixture of folk-catholic and spirit worship. South American church planters travel these waterways teaching the Gospel and organizing churches. A specially equipped mission boat serves as a base along the Amazon River. Pray for strength for the missionaries and spiritual awakening for the River People.
To provide a unique opportunity to experience God in a deeper way by connecting with partners locally and around the world by utilizing the gifts, skills, and time that God has given each of us for the benefit of the kingdom.
We are all called to live out the Great Commission from Matthew 28:19, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
Commitment: to life-transformation
Humility: a spirit of serving in all we do
