The Great Commission Is Bigger Than Your Church, by Bobby Jamieson

Because each of our churches is engaged in a mission that is bigger than any of them, we should proactively partner with other churches in order to fulfill it. Many churches’ denominational ties aim at this kind of partnership. But I’d like to suggest that the great commission should form in us, and in pastors in particular, a more pervasive posture of partnering with other churches to fulfill the great commission.

In other words, pastor, don’t consider your denominational affiliation or the money you give to missions to be your only, or even primary, means of fulfilling the great commission beyond the confines of your church. Instead, I’d argue that Scripture would also have you cultivate a posture of building partnerships with other pastors and churches in order to promote the gospel in your region and around the world.
