Welcome to the MISSIONS SITE for the Wisconsin Northern Michigan Ministries Network. Our missions emphasis is comprised of ministries, missionaries and projects within the Assemblies of God World Missions (AGWM), Assemblies of God US Missions (AGUSM) and Church Multiplication Network (CMN). It is our strong desire that we become a MISSIONS FORCE through the nearly 200 churches within our Ministries Network. "The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed". --Hudson Taylor Vision Statement - "Empower our churches to reach the world for Christ".

Missions Strategy

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Church Planting

Church Planting [JUDEA] focuses on starting healthy churches in the Wisconsin Northern Michigan Ministries Network. God is bringing together a group of young men and women who have a heart for God and a passion for His church. Each church is unique and a sense of God's blessing rests on each of these new churches. Church Planting is supported by the 20|20|60 missions giving strategy. Every church in our network is encouraged to contribute 20 percent of their missions' income for undesignated church planting. Many of our churches have adopted this strategy.

US Missions

US Missions [SAMARIA]. Hardly a week goes by that I don't receive some amazing report of a life changed through the efforts of our US missionaries. US Missions is also supported by the 20|20|60 missions giving strategy. Every church is encouraged to support US Missions with 20 percent of their monthly missions income.

World Missions

World Missions [ENDS OF THE EARTH] in the Wisconsin Northern Michigan Network supports forty-five missionaries around the world. Each church is in our network is encouraged to designate 60 percent of their monthly mission's income to support world missionaries. We are an open network (allowing all Assembly of God missionaries to itinerate in Wisconsin and Northern Michigan), but we encourage our churches to make it a priority to support our own network missionaries first.

VISION

 

A S-U-R-E THING

 

Statistics...

  • Wisconsin Northern Michigan has a total population of 5.5 million
  • Wisconsin Northern Michigan Ministries Network has a total of 190 churches
    • That is a ratio of one church for every 31,500 people.

If within the Wisconsin Northern Michigan Ministries Network there was one church for every 10,000 people, the total number of churches needed is:

550

The total number of churches we need to plant would be:

360

THE GOAL:

  • to plant 360 churches within the Wisconsin Northern Michigan Ministries Network
  • to reach a ratio of one church for every 10,000 people

 

THE DREAM:

To start 40 of 360 new churches in Wisconsin Northern Michigan in the next 36 months.

By December 31, 2021, within our Ministries Network, our dream is to number 340 healthy churches.  The keyword is HEALTHY.

If we were to plant 40 healthy churches by 2021, that alone would bring our ratio to one church for every 26,000 people.  That is moving in the right direction.
