Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

We believe the gospel must be present in everything we do, so we strive to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of the people we serve through our mission efforts locally and globally. We want to be a church known for ushering in God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. We believe the church is called by God to spread the gospel throughout the world, and we see the individual call for the followers of Christ to take part in this all over Scripture. In Matthew, Jesus commands us to go and make disciples of all the nations. In Romans, Paul reminds the church of this same command: “How then will they call on him in whom they have not heard?” Our prayer is that everyone at Stones Crossing would live on mission in light of who God is and what He has done for them.
This summer, we'll head to Medfield, Massachusetts, to partner with a local church in one of the least reached areas of our country. While on the trip, we will help remodel parts of the church building (originally built in 1776) and partner with them to do an outreach event in the community.

Why go to New England? This region is considered the least religious, least Bible-minded, and most post-Christian in the nation. Roughly 4-7 percent of New Englanders attend an evangelical church, a low percentage.

Our hope is to serve First Baptist Church in Medfield as they seek to glorify God through proclaiming the gospel in the city and surrounding area.

We need your help and there are two ways to do so! 

Even if you're not going to Massachusetts to serve, we invite you to PRAY for the team that will go. Sign up below to join the prayer team! Are you not able to go but you'd like to support our team members financially? You can do that too! Give at the button below.

Jon and Kelly Simpson

After serving in El Salvador for 16 years, John and Kelly Simpson moved to Birmingham, Alabama, to serve at the World Reach headquarters. Their role was to serve as a liaison between the home office and the Hispanic, Spanish-speaking missionaries serving with World Reach all over the world.  Over the past 10 years, their ministry has become more effective both with the Spanish-speaking missionaries on the field, as well as providing translation in the office. Their central vision is to offer ministry support, missionary care, and friendship to Spanish-speaking co-workers around the world and to help with communication between the office and the field. The Spanish language and Latin American cultural experience acquired while serving on the field has proven to be quite valuable as they serve in Birmingham.
