Joining on Mission Together: Disciples + Leaders + Churches
In the broadest sense, the Missionary Church is almost two million people in more than 20,000 congregations in more than 100 countries. There are more than 500 congregations in the United States.
At our essence, the Missionary Church Western Region is a family of churches united together in our commitment to the mission and message of Jesus. We are committed to making disciples, empowering leaders and starting and strengthening churches.
If you sense that God is leading you and your church family to join together with our family of churches, we’d love to pray with you about this. Let’s imagine what God will do as we take each step in this same direction.
