If you’ve been a part of the Shades family, you likely know this. If you’re new to Shades, you’ll find out quickly:
Living a life on mission is the core of who we are.
Summer is a great time to leverage our resources and gifts for the Kingdom of God. We send out more teams during the summer months than at any time during the year. We also see generations spanning one another to impact our world for Christ.
Through mid-June, we’ve sent out eight teams. We’ll commission and send out five more through August. 13 teams in the span of four months. Missions isn’t a value or call we’ve had to buy and sell; as a church family we’ve heeded the importance God placed in Scripture of taking the gospel to the nations.
We’ve commissioned senior adults, young professionals, students, and in a few weeks, we’ll commission sixth graders. The breadth of missions opportunities available to all of us highlight that Shades is a place on mission and that mission knows no generational lines.
For some it may be joining a team on an international project. For others it could be a stateside project with one of our nationwide ministry partners. It could be you waking up tomorrow and choosing to leverage that day for the glory of God and good of others.
Take that first step. Let’s live as transformed people who influence their world for Christ.
