Jesus did not give
the great commission to just one person, but to everyone who claims Him as
And Jesus came and
SAID TO THEM, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go
therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that
I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
THE VISION OF THE PEACE
to help get every member on mission doing what Jesus did and taught.
When it comes to sharing Christ’s love with the World the Church has the Biggest Distribution System
“The PEACE Plan is about turning an audience into an army, consumers into contributors, and spectators into participators. We believe it’s time for the church to be the church.” Rick Warren
P.E.A.C.E. PLAN MISSION STATEMENT
“Ordinary people, empowered by God’s Spirit, doing what Jesus did, together, wherever they are.”
The PEACE Plan is a church to church strategy mobilizing ordinary church members to do normal tasks that make a difference in the world. There aren’t enough doctors, teachers, or missionaries to solve the world’s giant problems, but we believe there is an army of believers waiting to be mobilized.
THE KEY: GO! GO once and be changed forever!
CROSSROADS COMMITMENT: 10% of your general giving goes to the PEACE PLAN.
SO HOW IS CROSSROADS USING THIS STRATEGY TO REACH THE LOCAL COMMUNITY & WORLD?
• People are inviting their friends to church
• People are sharing with others their story of life “in Christ”
We have local PEACE PLAN opportunities for you, your family, and your small group. There is always a kid-friendly option available. Here are some examples.
