Lack of Community Outreach
“We are proud to be sending 35 short-term mission teams to other countries this year.” But what about all the the team’s you aren’t sending into the neighborhoods in your own city? What about the people who don’t know Christ who need something to eat, need job skills, need a friend, etc in your own city? Don’t neglect those who are geographically close to you and your church building.
