Making Disciples Of All Nations

We take seriously the command to make disciples of all nations.

This translates not only to the city of Irving, but to every location. The call to make disciples is both local and global, and we desire to do both to the glory of God. We work out our Global Disciple-Making through three methods: Ministry Partnerships, Short-Term Mission Trips, and Church Planting.

How Do You Break Down Your Outreach?

Ministry Partnerships

Jesus' call for the church to disciple all is a large task, and no church should go it alone. In order to fulfill the great commission, we believe that the body at First Irving must come along side other organizations. Therefore, we partner with many different churches and ministries around the world to spread the Gospel in a greater way than any church can do alone. Some of our partners include:

Crisis Ministries of Irving SEALS Homeless Ministry Mid-Cities Pregnancy Center Miskito Missions Network Netcast Church - Boston Communion Baptist Church - Honduras

Short-Term Trips

Though we partner with many amazing workers and organizations across the globe, we believe it is also beneficial to put our very own members on the ground to share the Gospel face to face. Short-Term trips can be extremely beneficial in the lives of those ministering and being ministered to. They have also helped solidify the calling of the Spirit on many of our members to full-time mission work in those very same countries.

If you would like to serve on one of our Short-Term mission trips, we ask the following:

  • That you be a member of First Irving
  • That you attend the mandatory interest meeting for your desired mission trip.
  • That you fundraise the necessary capital for the trip
  • That you attend at least the minimum requirement of team meetings.

Church Planting

As we follow the leading of Jesus, and expand the Gospel to our community and around the world, God will call faithful men and women to take the ministry of the Church to other areas of need. This is a necessary function of the church, and we at First Irving desire to be a church that plants churches.

  • Refuge Irving - Lead Planter, Anthony Ball, has served as Missions Pastor at First Irving for many years. Blessed with a heart for the nations, he quickly noticed the nations had made their way to Irving. Anthony, and a team of planters from the church, felt a call from the Lord to form a church in the most diverse area of Irving, ministering to many different languages, ethnicities, and religions. They hope to develop a body of believers that truly portrays the multiethnic picture of Heaven.
