ACTS 1:8 Mission Strategy

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8 NLT)

Our Acts 1:8 Missions are a four-pronged strategy to organize missions here at SonRise. Acts 1:8 says,”But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” We have taken the four geographic regions in Acts 1:8 and applied it for SonRise:

Berlin Team - “Jerusalem”

The primary purpose of this Team is to engage in outreach efforts within the area of Berlin, MD. SonRise has a history of events and outreach in Berlin and this Team is to continue those practices and seek to grow that aspect of our mission. This includes the Harvest Fair every October, Park Clean-ups, Fundraiser for Stephen Decatur High School, and other events.

Shore Team - “Judea”

The primary purpose of this Team is to engage in outreach efforts throughout our surrounding area which we know as “The Eastern Shore”. This Team supports the work of Remedy Church in Salisbury with which we sponsor as well as our Multi-Site strategy for SonRise. The task of this Team is to develop new mission opportunities on the Shore.

Maryland Team - “Samaria"

The Maryland Team is lead by George and Dolores Eitel. The primary purpose of this Team is to support our church plants in Maryland. Currently we are partnering with Freedom Church and The Village Church which are both in Baltimore. They offer support and partnership through projects and mission trips with these churches.

If you would like more information or to be part of this Team, you can email George and Dolores at: emomof8@aol.com

US and Abroad - “ends of the earth”

The US and Abroad Team is lead by Greg & Doreen Redman. The primary purpose of this Team is to develop mission work beyond the state of Maryland for SonRise. We are currently partnering with churches in the Galapagos Islands as well as pursuing other partnerships.
