Vision

Click each for more details

We want the lost of the world to come to faith in the Lord, being “Christ-like,” and to be incorporated into the Church.  We want to actively grow the kingdom and instill within the Southside body a missional spirit by involving every member personally in actual mission activity. 
To be “Christ-like” is to show mercy.  The efforts of the Missions Team will be to show love and mercy to our neighbors and those around the world with expectations for them to come to know Christ and His Church.  
 Our vision is to be a catalyst to transform Southside members into active missionaries and to transform our neighborhood and other mission points to be filled with the love of Christ Jesus.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Mission Team is open to Southside partners who wish to participate in organizing and supporting domestic and international mission works.  We suggest that if you have an interest in participating on the Global Missions Team, please attend 3 or 4 meetings to get a feel for the responsibilities that are assigned to each GMT member.  If after 3 to 4 meetings, the Lord is leading you to become involved, please make such a request to one of the GMT members.
In order to propose a work  to the Southside Global Missions Team, please download the Mission Work Nomination Form and fill it out with the specific request and submit it to the GMT for consideration.

The criteria for funding include:

  • Complete definition of the specific work or need (items on the Mission Work Nomination Form).
  • Validation of the information through discussion with the missionary and other informed persons – due diligence period.
  • Confirmation of the missionary’s history and credentials.
  • Review and confirmation of the ability of the Southside church to fund the work.
 The missions budget varies from year to year depending on the forecasted contributions from the church at Southside.  The Global Missions Team develops a desired budget each year and then submits it to the elders for consideration and approval.  Once the budget amount is approved by the elders, then the funds are allocated appropriately among the various mission works.  The amount of each allocation is based on significant prayer and discussion among the team members. 
For more information, please refer to the Supported Mission Areas section, or feel free to Contact Us with any questions or concerns.
