Global Missions

The  call  of God  is to “GO ” and where we are called to go is our Jerusalem (Austin), our Judea (the  United  States), our Samaria and to the ends of the earth, which pretty much includes all the countries in the world. Another way to put it is that we are called to go here, there and everywhere. At The Church at Canyon Creek, we take this call to “go” seriously as we have been going to several different places in the world since 2004. The places we go are determined by where we believe God is leading us. Then we form strategic partnerships with missionaries and churches in those places, and those partnerships include short-term mission trips.

Throughout history, God has used exposure to other cultures as a powerful teaching tool. When we hear different languages, see different sites, smell different scents, and experience different customs, we are able to realize—in a new way—how diverse, creative and BIG our God is. God uses experiences on mission trips to help us become more dependent on Him, to destroy our pride and shape us into servant-learners. As we serve and learn, we participate with God in His work of redeeming and transforming the world.

Those who have been on mission trips come back changed. When we give our time and resources to God, take a risk and go, then become completely dependent on Him for several days in a foreign place, He does something BIG in us. Some of the comments past trip participants have made include: “My world view has been expanded”… “I was amazed at how God showed up”… “What happened was a miracle”… “I had to be dependent on God, so I drew closer to Him”… “God provided just what we needed every step of the way”… “On this trip, God affirmed the spiritual gifts and abilities He has given to me.”… “I did not hardly know anyone on the trip, but we bonded quickly and became family”… “Reaching out to people there makes me want to make that a priority here.”

Many of our church members and regular attenders have felt the call to go on one or more of these trips, that are anywhere from six to twelve days in length. All that we ask anyone who attends our church is this: “Would you pray to see if God wants you to go on one of our mission trips?” Then leave the rest up to God to tell you what He wants you to do.
