That’s right–we welcome you to jump in! We want you to join with us in this exciting adventure of God’s purpose! We believe in you, but moreso, our almighty God believes in you and has designed you for a specific purpose. You are part of God’s story. You are a protagonist. As you continue to make yourself available, He is going to fit you into specific places and use you to do incredible and heroic things! The heavens celebrate when people make decisions to trust God and take steps of faith to bring light to this lost and broken world. There is no better place to be in life than in the center of God’s purpose. He is using people like you to bring the hope of salvation into the whole world. God has one mission, all nations and one method, all believers. He has entrusted you with His gospel—the gospel that brings life, love, truth, freedom, hope, and purpose to individuals, people groups and whole nations!
“He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.’” (Mark 16:15)
The huge significance of going is emphasized by Jesus Christ. Believe in yourself, because He believes in you and will be with you as you walk by faith. See Jesus in the eyes of people and the “least of these” (Matt. 25:40). Don’t ever think you are not enough. God has equipped you with the exact personality, talents, and skills that He wants! You can change the world. You can be a history maker.
We are so excited for you and what God has in store for you! Be encouraged and joyful because missions is fun! Yes, there are devastating tragedies in the world and you will see things that will cause you to definitely be sad, but rejoice in this opportunity to be used by God!
“You come as men, approved by God to be entrusted with the Gospel. For we do not seek to please men, but God, who tests the heart.”
1 Thes. 2:4-5
We like to say FaithQuest’s beginnings were when Jesus said “Go” in 33 AD, as it says in our logo. Skipping ahead 2000 years, businessman John Gash went on his first mission trip in April of 2002. This was a transformational experience for him and the beginning of the journey FaithQuest. Since then, others like Carlos and Jordan have joined the effort vocationally and others like Cathey and Stan are alongside us as passionate volunteers serving in on all kinds of ways. Together we have enjoyed relationships with more than 50 churches in the USA from 8 different denominational groups. It has been a privilege to help arrange for more than 1000 people to go on a short term mission trip to many parts of the world. Many become passionate about missions, including many that have become full-time vocational workers in this field, and far more that are servant leaders in their churches, helping to spark faith in action, outwardly-focused movements in their churches. Additionally, we have helped to play a part in the birth of several new mission organizations and movements that have grown out of these same trips. We feel like we have front row seats on the 50 yard to the biggest thing we could ever imagine! We are very thankful to our great and awesome God.
