A story is unfolding about ordinary men and women embracing God’s mission and making small interventions that will lead to the healing of this world.
This is the story of Soma and our partners who are not content to just “do church” anymore but who are becoming a movement of impact with a God-sized vision for: Freeing people to follow Jesus by sharing the gospel, loving orphans and breaking the chains of poverty, injustice, disease and illiteracy. Our mission trips are designed to get us out of the seat and into God’s story. Join the movement.
Global Outreach – in partnership with Pleasant Valley Baptist Church of Kansas City – is more than sending a few trips across the world in the name of charity. It’s a mission to advance God’s Kingdom wherever we go, whenever we go in the lives of those who go. That means the orphan across the ocean as well as the homeless man on our very own street corner. At Soma, we want to boldly live to give our lives away. Through our time, skill set and resources, we believe living generously is the avenue through which God can change the world.
GO: Engage in Mission
If you’re ready to engage in mission with Soma, there are a few easy steps to get you going to serve overseas, complete the following steps:
- Step 1 | Log in to our Managed Missions system. If you’ve never been on a Soma mission trip or it has been more than 2 years since the trip, you’ll need to fill out form A.
- Step 2 | Once we have received and reviewed your Mission Trip Information Form, we will contact you to schedule a time for you to meet with Pastor Jon.
- Step 3 | Attend our Ready, Set, GO! Class. This class will help you prepare spiritually, physically and emotionally for the challenges of a short-term trip. This class is required for anyone going on a mission trip and is held quarterly. Email Pleasant Valley’s Debbie Mora for more information.
- Step 4 | Pray and seek where God is calling you to serve. Contact Debbie Mora to apply for a specific trip.
PRAY: Ask God to Move
Prayer is an essential and crucial element of expanding God’s kingdom. In fact, we believe it lays the foundation for any fruitful work to be done.
When we pray, we see God work in countless ways as He draws people to himself and provides, heals and guides our ministry partners around the world, mission teams we send out and outreach events we plan. There are several ways you can be involved in prayer for Global Outreach, including our Global Outreach prayer team. As we become aware of urgent requests, emails are sent out to this group. To sign-up, email Debbie Mora.
GIVE: Generosity Fuels Transformation
We want to be a church that lives with an open hand in generosity. As we bring back to God what He has already given, we get to watch God do incredible things in and through us. There are a few ways to contribute to the Kingdom-expanding work here at PV:
