Missions is a huge part of our heart at Stonegate. As a Southern Baptist Church, Stonegate contributes to the Southern Baptist Cooperative Program. We also feel that God has called us to help a specific missions emphasis both locally and internationally. We specifically target Church Planting and Orphan Care both locally and internationally. As with most things of God, we are discovering new layers of this call all the time. Currently, it looks like this:
Acts clearly shows the mission of God moving forward through church planting. Stonegate Church was planted in August 2009. We have deep conviction that the local church is God’s primary way of reaching and discipling His people. As a result, we see church planting as God’s primary vessel to reach and disciple new people in virtually every context.
Currently, Stonegate is supporting a number of church plants locally and internationally. In addition to monetary support, we are committed to equipping future church planters with hiring with the intention to send out Church Planter Residents.
