    Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.  And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’  (Matthew 28:19-20)

     

    Stanwich World Missions seeks to make Christ known locally and globally. We encourage everyone at Stanwich to find their place and engage in missions to make a difference in a hurting world using your time, talents and financial resources to expand God’s Kingdom.  We support local, domestic and global ministries and missionaries with opportunities to serve, pray and grow.  

    Our World Missions vision aligns with the Great Commission.  To achieve maximum Kingdom impact, Stanwich Church partners with multiple individuals and organizations that provide needed services and spiritual development in the name of our savior Jesus Christ.  These services reach near and far, both culturally and geographically.  Our missions partners and services they provide are organized as follows:

     




                      

    Mission Prayer Focus:

    This month's mission prayer focus is Rev. Fred Farrokh an International Trainer with Global Initiative.  Rev. Farrokh is reaching Muslim people.  Fred's global ministry equips Christians to be effective, culturally sensitive and relevant Gospel witnesses to Muslims.  Through the ministry, many local churches in predominantly Islamic contexts learn to disciple Muslim-background believers in a context of persecution.  He also serves as Ambassador Emeritus with Jesus for Muslims Network in Metro NY, also a Stanwich Missions partner.


    Each month we hand out a prayer card to our congregation that highlights one of our supported partners.  Know that our prayers as the Body of Christ are powerful and effective! This month we will heard from Rev. Farrokh about his ministry.  

    Here is how you can pray for Rev. Fred Farrokh:

    That the Holy Spirit would open hearts to the message of the Gospel.

    That new believers would be protected, strengthened and supported in their faith.

     That God continues to bless, protect and sustain Rev. Farrokh and those he instructs in witnessing across cultural boundaries.
