Missions

We believe that every follower of Christ is called to Live Sent — to the City, to North America, and to the World. Live Sent means leveraging who we are and what we’ve been given for the sake of the gospel, wherever we are and wherever God takes us. 
 
We want to help every member of Shandon live in full obedience to the Great Commission and their unique roles in it. Click through the buttons below to explore career missions, mission trips, local volunteer opportunities, financial support, prayer support, and more. 
 
For specific questions in the meantime, stop by the Missions Next Steps area in the lobby on Sundays or email us at . 

Due to the continued worldwide spread of COVID-19, all mission trips are cancelled for the remainder of 2020. Please pray for our national church planters and global missionaries as they continue to serve, and stay tuned for announcements of 2021 trips. In the meantime, please consider serving locally with one or more of our gospel partners.

Strategic Global Partnerships

As we participate in fulfilling the Great Commission, Shandon seeks kingdom-minded partners with proven leadership and field experience to provide opportunities for our members to Live Sent. Strategic global partners include the following: 

Missionary Care 

Since the days of the Apostle Paul, churches have been the primary source of encouragement, support and advocacy for missionaries as they take the gospel to every nation. Classes, families and individuals can actively participate in ongoing prayer and missionary care — with mutual benefits! Email to get involved.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20
