What Is World Impact?

  • Christ calling us to others; to reach the unreached. (Mark 16:15)
  • God’s command to us: learning, serving and praying for cross cultural relationships to share Christ’s redeeming love. (Matthew 28:19-20)
  • Sending individuals out with His authority. (Acts 1:8)

How We “Do” World Impact?

Prayer: We pray for our international workers around the world.

Mission Care: We welcome home those same workers and help them feel comfortable and connected in our fast-paced society.

Missions Future: We identify and walk alongside individuals as they follow God’s calling into international service.

Missions Education: We strive to inform all ages of God’s work around the world.

World Impact Teams: We respond to the expressed needs from our international partners by sending specific individuals and teams to aid in their ministries and work.

World Impact Philosophy

Salem Alliance has participated in short-term missions trips for over 20 years. Increasingly, we have tried to identify the specific needs of the international worker families from our church and from our denomination. We have found that we can be most helpful when we respond to expressed needs from the mission field.

Our process includes communication and request from the field, approval by our Governing Board, team applications, team training (usually for one year), and debriefing. We typically have a team pastor as well as an appointed team leader. 

We believe that God honors our obedience and willingness by using us to encourage His workers and advance His Kingdom.

He is calling ... are we listening?
