The apostle Paul identiﬁed two important components of missions — those who “go” and those who “send.” Churches and missionaries―two halves of a team extending God’s kingdom worldwide.

Through this spiritual partnership, God is gloriﬁed, and both parties are greatly strengthened in their vision and mission.
At Ventura Jubilee Fellowship, our mission is “Every Member Connected”, whereby every congregant and ministry within the church prays diligently and regularly for our local community, our missions partners, and their work. Additionally, we demonstrate our long-term commitment to our missions partners through regular ﬁnancial support. We believe it not only blesses them—but it also blesses us (Philippians 4:15-19).
Our prayer is for our mission partners to be used to open doors and soften hearts for the cause of Christ. His Word says, “those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy. They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.”―Psalm 126: 5-6
