Guest Speaker: Distracted From the Mission

Guest Speaker: Jared Via, Ministry Director of World Reach Partnerships
Text: 2 Corinthians 5:17-21

From Genesis to Revelation, we can clearly see that God is on a mission to redeem His people. Jared Via from World Reach Partnerships shows us how from every tongue, tribe and nation God is drawing men and women to Himself, and then sending them out as His ambassadors. As followers of Jesus, we have been given a mission. Sadly, many of us have gotten distracted.
