Missions

The purpose of Missions & Outreach at The Edge Foursquare Church is to train and equip ordinary people to extend His love in the name of Jesus. The first Sunday each month we take up a separate missions and outreach offering to maintain a focus on this important ministry. In addition, 10% of our general fund goes to Foursquare Missions International.

Local Missions & Outreach

Through building bridges in our local community, the Edge Foursquare Church strategically leads and partners with ministries that care for the most vulnerable in our community. Through equipping the saints (you), we are able to show the love and compassion of Jesus to a broken and hurting community. We believe that the key to transforming lives for Jesus is through the context of the relationships we build in our neighborhoods.

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. {Ephesians 2:10}

We will help you find the intersection of passion and purpose in your life which God has specifically gifted you to serve.

Foreign Missions & Outreach

The Great Omission…

There’s good reason it has also been called the Great Omission. Though Jesus told his first followers to go into all the world and make disciples (Matt. 28:19-20), the Great Commission’s instruction seems to have been widely ignored—today there are large parts of the globe where the work of sharing the gospel has been left to a faithful few.

Take MENACA, the name given to a region in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia, overseen by Foursquare Missions International (FMI) area missionary Sam Johnson. Less than 0.001 percent of the 600 million or so population across around 30 countries are evangelical believers. Rather, most are Muslims.

Only around a dozen full-time Foursquare missionaries, from FMI and other countries, are currently serving in this overwhelmingly unreached area. The scale of their challenge is magnified by security concerns that make it dangerous for them to speak publicly about what they are doing.

The Edge Foursquare Church sponsored a couple from our church from 2016-2018 and will continue to support foreign missions through FMI.
