Neighbors and Nations

Neighbors & Nations: Send Disciples
March 24–31, 2024 

Tri-Cities is a redeemed community of Jesus followers on mission together. Neighbors & Nations is a week-long emphasis twice a year designed to equip and mobilize us for gospel advancement beginning next door and reaching around the world. Not sure where to get started? Use the resources listed on this page!

Our emphasis for this Neighbors & Nations is Send Disciples.
Every follower of Jesus is a disciple, and every disciple is sent on mission. When we Send Disciples, that includes sending short-term trips and long-term missionaries to share the gospel nationally and internationally. But we also Send Disciples by reminding one another that our primary mission field is where we live, work, and play as we pursue obedience to the call to share the gospel with those around us who do not know the Lord.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…” (Matthew 28:19)

And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near.” (Ephesians 2:17)

Share The Gospel

The pursuit to Send Disciples starts when we intentionally go to those around us and share the good news of the gospel with them.

Every member of TCBC is challenged this week to consider three people inside your spheres of influence who you can actively pursue with the gospel. Who are your 3 names?
