In Revelation 7:9 we get an extraordinary glimpse into the future when all Christians from all people groups will gather together before the throne of King Jesus and worship him with fullness of joy for eternity. God’s vision of the future is meant to inspire the church to make disciples of all nations right now, in the present, for the glory of God and the joy of all peoples.
We want everyone at Ashland Church to be witnesses who passionately pray, boldly witness, sacrificially give, and eagerly go together so that disciples will be made of all the nations gathered here in Richmond and spread to the ends of the earth for the glory of God and the joy of all peoples.
So now the only question is: Where will you go?

SHORT TERM OPPORTUNITIES (1 to 2 Weeks)
This summer we have the opportunity to continue to serve in New Orleans and assist North American Mission Board church planters to plant more churches throughout the city. Our Ashland Church team will spend a week in New Orleans serving the local church and sharing the gospel with the lost. This is a great short-term opportunity for Christians of all ages and for those who have never been on a mission trip before.
College students can make the most of their school breaks by going to New Orleans to work alongside our church planting partners with the North American Mission Board. GenSend Breaks are designed for college students to spend a week of their spring, fall, summer, or winter break in New Orleans sharing the gospel and making disciples.
During spring break, we want to send a small team to serve and encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ and share the gospel with people in Peru. This team will help us make preparations and strategize for our summer mission work. While beneficial, it is not necessary to speak Spanish.
For one week this summer, our church will have a team in Peru serving alongside our church planting partners. This team will focus primarily on evangelism and discipleship. While beneficial, it is not necessary to speak Spanish.
In the second half of the year, we have an opportunity to train pastors and church leaders as we continue our work to strengthen churches in Ica, Peru. We are planning a week-long training conference hosted by the Ica Baptist Seminary and Family Bible Center Church pastored by Pastored Wilfredo Pardo. We need a small team to help run the conference and men to teach sessions. While beneficial, it is not necessary to speak Spanish.
MID TERM OPPORTUNITIES (2 Weeks to 2 Years)
College students can serve for 6 to 8 weeks during the summer to help our work as a church to plant churches in New Orleans through the GenSend program with the North American Mission Board. They will be trained and work alongside local church planters to share the gospel and make disciples in the city of New Orleans.
For 5-6 weeks this summer, we are sending a team of college students to work alongside missionaries and church planters in Peru. Their primary focus will be working through the local church to share the gospel and make disciples in the community and on campus.
