Go and Serve
On a short-term mission trip
We desire that every person at The Austin Stone go on a short-term trip at least once. If you have never done this, it may be the year for you! Short-term trips play a significant role in our spiritual formation, and are strategic for long-term kingdom impact. On these trips, we serve alongside long-term workers who are making disciples and planting churches. Trips are generally seven to ten days in the winter and summer months to places like Europe, the Caribbean, the Middle East, South Asia, and more.
Train and Discern
In a Goer Missional Community
Do you desire to engage with people from other nations who have come to our very own city? A Goer Missional Community focuses for 10 weeks on reaching these people with the gospel. This Missional Community engages international peoples of Austin through evangelism, reading the Bible with those God is drawing to Himself, and praying often as a community for the lost. This is also the beginning step for anyone in our church who is discerning a potential call to work among the nations long-term.
Through providing tangible needs for goers
We currently have 147 long-term Goers from The Austin Stone in 25 countries around the world. Every so often, Goers return for a home ministry assignment to visit supporting churches, catch up with friends and family, fundraise, and attend various medical and legal appointments. Since many have sold everything they have in order to move overseas, they are in need of homes and cars for one to six months when they return to Austin. As a church family, we would love to meet those needs while our Goers are stateside.
Through generosity to reach the nations
Giving is a primary way to get involved in God’s work among the nations. In Philippians 4:15-18, Paul credits the Philippian church for partnering with him by giving. He says it is not the gift he seeks, but “the fruit that increases to [the sender’s] credit” (Phil. 4:17). The generosity of our senders enables the fruit of our Goers, and senders participate alongside our Goers with mutual joy. Join us in engaging the nations through generosity, either with a one-time gift or ongoing monthly support to our Goers.
