Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (NIV)
We now serve the Lord as Foursquare Missions International (FMI) 'Emissary' missionaries in the South Pacific. Based in Deer Park Washington, we travel to the South Pacific Region to provide discipleship training, pastoral care and medical outreach to national leaders and missionaries.
In FMI's efforts to mobilize more people for global mission they have created a new category of mission worker designated, 'FMI Emissary.' The main definition for Emissary is a 'representative sent on a mission.' An FMI Emissary will be FMI appointed, Foursquare licensed, US Based Foursquare leaders/Pastors who have ongoing ministry roles within certain nations, regions, people groups that help advance the great commission through Foursquare Missiology.
The Foursquare church's in the South Pacific islands are sending out their own missionaries. As a result, the islands are exploding with new believers. We have been given the task to come along side our National Missionaries and Leaders and assist them in equipping, encouragement, and leadership training. This enables them to carry out the great commission in their own and similar cultures and settings. We understand that the remoteness of these places makes it very difficult for our pastors to get the care and training they need to optimize their own spiritual growth. Our job is to give them a 'leg up' and mobilize these precious leaders as they are in the forefront of winning the South Pacific nations to Christ.
As a Foursquare Disaster Relief Emissary, we also have been invited to assist Chad Isenhart the FDR Director, in responding to disasters through indigenous Foursquare National Churches. The goal is to equip and reinforce the local church to respond and sustain both relief and development capacity. We will be focusing on developing and leading FDR's Emergency Medical Team. Additionally, we will assist with communicating to the US National Foursquare Church, the needs, opportunities, challenges, and successes through stories of transformation and redemption from the field. Together with my role as Emissary to the South Pacific, we seek to increase understanding and training with FDR global and US response, and work to increase preparedness within the South Pacific both globally and locally.
