As He was ending His time on Earth, Jesus gave the church one of its main reasons for being — the Great Commission. In it, Christ challenges us to take His message and live it out locally, regionally and “…to the remotest part of the earth” (Acts 1:8). That is a huge, global task that can’t be accomplished without great focus.
That’s why “Global Focus” has become the umbrella under which all of Harvest City’s missions activities are organized. It is not so much a stand-alone ministry as it is a church-wide coordination of outreach efforts.
Since 2007, using the Global Focus approach Harvest City has seen amazing increase in its passion for missions, its financial contributions and its effectiveness in mission fields around the world.
The Global Focus strategy is simple: Rather than scattering missions giving to every request that comes along, Harvest City forms strategic partnerships with particular missions workers locally, nationally and internationally. Prayer, hands-on support and financial resources are then focused on making those partners as fruitful as they can be.
It is a bold and far-reaching way of doing missions, yet intensely personal and relational. For example, one missionary partner had this to say about her experience with Global Focus:
“We were made to feel more than welcome — accepted and loved, even spoilt. [Global Focus] has personally ministered to me more than words could say.”
Global Focus Partnerships
Harvest City actively partners with numerous missions organizations in Regina and around the world. With those partners, we help meet a wide range of needs for a wide range of people – orphans, victims of the sex trade, indigenous evangelists, women considering abortion, international students and many others.
Global Impact Celebration
Harvest City’s Global Impact Celebration, organized by the church’s Global Focus team, is the annual rallying point for our ongoing outreach endeavours. It’s a multi-day, life-changing cultural festival with something for everyone.
One main attraction is our Local and International Partners, who come from around the globe to report on what God has been doing through our joint efforts. Various events for all ages give us a chance to hear from the partners and celebrate all the accomplishments.
With so much going on, the Global Impact Celebration offers lots of opportunities for Harvest City people to pitch in and help. Whether you prefer decorating, organizing, set-up and take-down, ushering or just being available for whatever, your contribution will help extend the kingdom of God around the world!
