Respond to the great commission

On World Missions Sunday, February 27, part of the service included dedicating ourselves to the Lord's work around the world by committing to pray, give, and/or go. Remember, at Second the World Missions budget is separate from the general budget of the church, supported exclusively by your giving designated for world missions. Use the button below to pledge online. There will also be pledge envelopes in the pew racks on Sunday, March 6. 

Make Your Pledge

Pray for our world missions partners

We support more than 60 missionaries in 7 strategic regions of the world. Please commit to faithfully praying for them and those they serve. Printed prayer books are available around the church.

Conference Speakers

Roger Lowther is the founder and director of Community Arts Tokyo, director of Faith & Art at Grace City Church Tokyo, and coordinator for the MAKE Collective, a global network of artists working in foreign missions. He has been serving with Mission to the World since 2003. Roger received a Master of Music from The Juilliard School and a Bachelor of Science from Columbia University. He is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Theological Studies at Reformed Theological Seminary. He lives in downtown Tokyo with his wife Abi and children.

Thomas McIntyre has been a missionary with OMF International in Taiwan for 13 years. He grew up at Second, is a graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary, and is ordained in the EPC. Thomas is pursuing a Doctor of Ministry from Knox Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Jennifer (who will speak at the conference on Thursday), started a church in Zhongpu—one of the most unreached areas of Taiwan. Their church plant was recently turned over to a local pastor, and they look forward to starting a new church plant later this year in another unreached area called Xingang. 

Annual report

By mid-February, you should have received your World Missions Annual Report in the mail. As you dive in to the stories featured there, we pray God will prepare your heart for a weekend of Reconnecting without our partners and Reimagining world missions in light of how God is moving across the globe. If you haven't yet received your Annual Report, email to request a copy.
