We often also send teams to our missionaries locations to support them in ministry. Check out the Lakewood Missions Corner for many of the missionaries latest prayer and newsletters.
LAKEWOOD CRISIS RESPONSE
When crises happen, a unique mission field develops as people ask the questions, "Why?" and "What now?" In times like these, previously closed doors can become opportunities to share the gospel. Lakewood Mobilize is a team of volunteers who gather regularly to encourage each other, train in crisis response, raise funds for future opportunities and stand ready to deploy when the call comes weather in our neighborhood or around the world. Would you like to join us?
