Where is God Calling YOU to GO in 2020?
Over the past several years, the Immanuel family has commissioned over 1,200 people to serve on over 132 different GO Teams spanning every corner of the globe. Through the support and onsite ministry of those teams, the Immanuel family has served more than 120,000 people and shared the Gospel with more than 36,000. Throughout that time, more than 5,406 have come to faith in Jesus Christ! Over 60,729 copies of God’s Word, each in the host language, have been personally delivered across dozens of countries into the hands of many who have never even heard the name of Jesus.
This year, we have designed a multitude of opportunities for you and your family to jump in and begin investing personally into the spiritual eternity of the people of our world. Prayerfully consider the following trips and find where God is calling you to go in 2020!
Strategy Leaders are men and women equipped to be a liaison between a Go Partner and Immanuel Baptist Church.
