GO Global

The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) tells us, the church, that we are to spread the gospel to all peoples. This is done through cross-cultural missions, international church planting, and business as mission (relocating your job to live in and reach another part of the world). The local church raises up and sends out missionaries (Acts 13). Tri-Cities works through Strategic Missional Partnerships in order to effectively be a sending church. The church is a sent people, on mission, to spread the gospel and we want to mobilize our church around the world. We all have a role to play whether that is praying, giving, or going. A sending church culture starts locally and spreads globally because the mission of the church is both local and global at the same time.

Tri-Cities work in two different contexts: reached and unreached people groups. A reached context is where healthy churches already exist. Our role here is to further encourage, train, and strengthen the local churches. An unreached context is where there are no churches and less than 2% of the people group is Christian. Our role here is to help plant churches. Visit to learn about unreached people groups.
