The church is "to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up..." (Ephesians 4:12). Pine Run continues to equip people for works of service that they might serve here and throughout the world. Jesus called for us to: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." We pray for and remember those who have left and gone on as Christ's Servants in other parts of the world.
