We will have ONE service on Easter Sunday. Join us at 9:30!

Missions

We acknowledge that mission is God’s redemptive work in the hearts and minds of His people through the work and person of Jesus Christ by the power of His Holy Spirit. Ultimately, mission is God’s work throughout the world, and He graciously invites His Church to participate in His mission. Therefore Restoration Church Bryan's goal, as a local church body, is to orient our missions to be a direct reflection of God’s mission within the world.

So then, in order to clearly communicate where God has called us to invest we seek to further define and distinguish missions. We see missions as two parts: local and global. While normally distinct from one another, these two parts blend together at times (i.e. ministering to international students in our local context). For normative purposes Restoration defines the two as such:

Local Missions: we see local missions as going outside the walls of our building to meet needs and build relationships so that we can make disciples throughout Bryan/College Station.

Global Missions: we see global missions as crossing cultural, religious, ethnic, and geographic barriers to advance the work of making disciples of all nations.

In both local and global missions, we view the local church as the primary means of making and equipping disciples. Only through the church, where people move towards others in discipling relationships, do we expect to find true, holistic restoration.

Ultimately, our goal in both local and global missions is to plant gospel-centered local churches, where discipleship thrives among those of all ages, the lost are reached, and where the people of Christ come together to work towards the physical restoration (health, education, economic, social, etc.) of their area.

2022 Restoration Missions Opportunities

Each of the following paragraphs will help you understand what our aim is in each of these fields. The information is not meant to be comprehensive, but rather help you begin the process in deciding if you’d like to join us for one of these opportunities. 

Kenya (May 18th - 28th || Price: TBA) WAITLIST

Restoration will be going on our first mission trip to Kenya this May! Our hope is to take a team of 5-8 people to Kenya to help continue to establish our partnership with Segera Mission. While on our trip we will be interacting with the people in the area by sharing stories of Jesus and the message of hope and life He offers. Our long term goal is to plant a church in a small under-resourced and unchurched area named “Jerusalem.”

Indonesia (May 30th - June 12th || Price: $3,250)

Restoration will be taking a team of 12-15 people to Indonesia this summer! We are partnering with a team of long term missionaries in Indonesia who are taking the Gospel to and planting churches among unreached/ unengaged peoples in hard to reach areas. Our team will learn about the culture of the peoples in the area and then take a couple of “Luke 10 trips.”

France (July 11th - 21st || Price $3,000)

Restoration will be taking our first ever trip to France this summer! There is a small team of missionaries and church planters seeking to plant community center focused churches in a French city. The area where they are doing ministry houses many Muslim refugees as well as college students as it is near a university. Our team of 5-8 people will be assisting the ministry of the long term missionaries in France.

Half/ Full Summer Opportunities:

In addition to the three trips we will be taking this summer, there are a few other opportunities available to Restoration members. If you are interested in going on a longer short term mission trip (6-12 weeks), we may have a few options for you. Please contact us if you are interested so we can get the ball rolling!

Mid-term Opportunities:

For Restoration members who are graduating and/ or looking to do a gap semester or year, along with any of our adults and families wrestling with a call to missions, we may have a midterm (4-18 months) opportunity for you in both France and Indonesia. If you are interested in exploring this opportunity, please contact Matt Ullrich or Matt Prine.

Restoration Missions Residency:

For Restoration graduating seniors who are exploring a call to missions and/ or ministry in general, we are launching a Missions Residency. This residency is 12-18 months and would give you the opportunity to work alongside Restoration Missions staff and leadership in equipping, mobilizing, and leading our church family to reach the nations with the Gospel of Jesus. Please contact Matt Ullrich for more information on applying for this opportunity.
