Our Mission: Discipleship by building purposeful relationships inside and outside the church so that we can speak the gospel (the love of God) into each other’s lives. We accomplish our mission by living on mission both locally and globally.
The heart behind local missions at Redeemer is to partner up with Love Our Neighbors to seek opportunities to build purposeful relationships with those outside of the church.
Love Our Neighbors is a platform with a wide variety of opportunities for Redeemer. Our ask is that everyone who attends Redeemer adopts one project a year on their own, and the none project a year with their community group to serve together.
Global Partners are involved in holistic mission that engages in church planting. Global Partners consider Redeemer their primary sending church and desire a two‐way partnership where they receive regular prayer and financial support from Redeemer and in return provide regular updates by visiting Redeemer during furloughs and are open to the possibility of hosting short‐term teams/visitors from Redeemer to encourage and work alongside them in the field.
Ben & Aubree
Ben & Aubree are in Jordan working with a team operating a medical clinic for the local refugee population with the overall goal of seeing a movement of the Gospel in the local population. Ben works as a doctor in the clinic, and Aubree will help train local families who have children with special needs on how to better care for their children.
Ben met with B, E, Sal and Nate this past week, and was so encouraged —- they seem to want to all meet together regularly and he senses growth here. Keep praying!
Continue to pray for them as they process their adoption experiences and live in faith, not fear
Pray for breakthrough in “Al”, one of Aubree’s friends (sister-in-law to Helen). Al rarely leaves home, cares for five children, and faces domestic violence on a regular basis.

Luke and Amber work alongside local leaders in a variety of ministries in order to produce Gospel movements that are sustainable and reproducible, and ultimately will produce disciples of Jesus Christ and build the Church in Tanzania.
