Discover Global Mission
The RCA and God's Mission
From Jhonny Alicea-Baez, Director of Global Mission
When you read the Scriptures, you will notice that many of men and women's encounters with God include the phrase "Do not fear!" Fear has a tendency of paralyzing us. It causes us to shift our focus or moves us to turn back or give up. Yet there is reassurance in God's counsel, "Do not fear!" These words encourage us to trust God, to place our confidence on God's purposes, and to trust that in the midst of the unknown God will continue to be in and with us.
Global Mission has heeded God's call not to fear. Our engagement in God's mission, in response to God's call, and in partnership with the global church calls us to look beyond ourselves to God's purposes and provisions. Our partnerships with believers around the world who are committed to kingdom goals and priorities allow us to see the six elements of Our Call lived out daily. Churches are being planted; new believers are coming to faith and being discipled; congregations are responding to the challenge to move into mission in and around their communities; leaders are being shaped, formed, and sent into service into God's world; and many are journeying towards wholeness as they stand against racism and discrimination.
Do not fear! God's mission is dynamic and engaging. As you read the information on these web pages, I pray that you will not hesitate to get involved in God's mission--to reconcile all peoples through Jesus Christ. There is much to learn in these pages. You will find information related to countries where the gospel is being proclaimed, our partners in mission, our mission personnel, and how we're involved in being God's hands and feet in the world. I encourage you to call or write if you'd like more information; it will be our joy to serve you.
