GO. SEND. PRAY.
“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’” Matthew 28:18-20 NIV
As a church, we are committed to being obedient to the Great Commission. We want to see lives changed and discipleship taking place in our own neighborhoods and to the uttermost parts of the earth. The Go Fund was established to make the far-away places more accessible to any who are willing to go. If you are interested in going on one of these First Baptist Jackson-approved trips, please consider applying for a Go Fund scholarship. There are a few requirements that you must meet in order to receive a scholarship. The requirements are as follows:
Scholarship applicant must be:
1. A disciple of Jesus: In order to make disciples you must be a disciple of Jesus, which is defined as one who has professed Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and who obeys His call to follow Him.
2. Any team member of an approved First Baptist Jackson mission trip regardless of financial need.
– Preference will be given to First Baptist Jackson members.
– Non-First Baptist Jackson members will be eligible but subject to availability of funds and approval of the committee overseeing the Go Fund.
3. A team member who has attended a First Baptist Jackson disciple-making training course and team meeting.
4. A team member who has attended a First Baptist Jackson-approved security training course.
Please know that our Missions Department is ready to walk with you through this process! If you are approved, you will receive up to 50% of your total trip cost.
We believe that the Sending is as important as the Going. If you are not able to go but want to be a part of our mission trips, then please consider sending! You can know that your gift will make a difference not only to the person going, but also to the many people whom they encounter on their journey. Please watch the short video below to learn more about the Go Fund.
