Devoted to the Mission: Beyond the Walls


Devoted to the Mission: Beyond the Walls

Every believer needs a ministry in the church to the body of Christ, and every believer needs a mission in the world to those outside the walls. Prayerfully consider where God may be leading in your next steps in service.
