About Virginia Beach Missional Church:
Virginia Beach Missional Church exists to glorify God by making multiplying disciples through an “Equip” worship service and missional communities. We envision strengthening disciple-makers globally by equipping church leaders, seminarians, and foreign missionary candidates and workers. We also envision sending cross-cultural disciple-makers to other nations and planting more churches in the states that function as equip centers. Our motto is: “Every believer a missionary”. We have a three-step strategy to fulfill the Great Commission: 1) win seekers, 2) build believers, 3) equip workers, resulting in multiplication. Email me for a full explanation of our missional philosophy and ministry plan.
Ways to Partner:
- Our launch team is in need of gifted musicians.
- We also need teams from your churches to help our missional communities serve the people they are targeting (block parties; VBS in neighborhood parks; caring for the homeless at the beachfront; boardwalk and beach evangelism; mowing, edging, and leaf racking; screen, window, and gutter cleaning for widows; seasonal neighborhood outreaches, etc.).
- That God would grow our launch team with believers who are passionate about our missional philosophy.
- For the launch of missional community small groups and the development of their leaders.
- That our members would radically reorient their lives around five missional practices (B.L.E.S.S. acrostic): Begin with prayer daily for their lost friends; Listen to them as you talk together; Eat with at least one lost friend each week; Serve them when opportunities arise; and share your Story (testimony) and His story (the Gospel) when the timing is right.
- That we would remain focused on relationships.
- That God would provide for our financial needs through our launch team members, individual sponsors, and partnering churches.
Prayer Request Update | June 2016

- For God’s continued financial provision.
