Missions Emphasis Month is a dedicated month where we prioritize the missionaries that we as a church support and focus our finances and prayers to. For October 2022 we will be placing special emphasis on our supporting strategic partners: Vernon and Mary Smith.
Vernon and Mary have been serving as missionaries in Tanzania since 1990. They are currently in the process of building a facility that will be used to train the next generation of church leaders as they seek to leave a legacy of biblically faithful church plants. We have a great opportunity to financially and prayerfully partner with the Smiths in this project to see healthy churches established across Tanzania through the training of qualified and equipped pastors.
"Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest."
There are currently more opportunities to spread the Gospel than ever before, therefore it is imperative that we see men and women answering God’s call to missions.
PROJECT 938 is an intentional call for concerted prayer, that men and women will hear and surrender to the call of God to take the Gospel to every region of the world. In Matthew 9:38, we are commanded to pray for more laborers to fulfill the Great Commission by sharing the Gospel everywhere and to everyone. In response to this command, our church is continuing PROJECT 938 to rally our members to set their alarms to 9:38 everyday and pray for more laborers.
Golf for more than a purpose!

Reach the Neighbors and Nations!
We are asking for everyone to take their giving for missions to the next level of faith not just by giving for the month of October but all year! Faith Promise Giving is giving financially to world missions. We give generously, joyfully, and sacrificially because Christ first gave Himself for us. "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich." (2Corinthians 8:9). His grace enables us to give our hearts back to Him as obedient followers. Jesus said that where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Our giving follows our hearts. Give your heart to Jesus and His global mission and your treasure, time, and talent will follow. Faith Promise Giving is simply a way to glorify God by giving to world missions over and above our tithe through our local church. By doing so, we partner with God and His missionaries in making Jesus known for the joy of all peoples.
Midway Church has a desire to not just reach the world but also your own neighborhood which is why we are encouraging for all believers to have 4,000 Gospel conversations with people you know who don't follow Jesus. When you’ve been transformed by God’s love, you can’t help but want others to experience the same grace and freedom. We want to be a blessing to our surrounding communities by implementing the B.L.E.S.S. approach.
