What is I WILL GO mission initiative?
The I Will Go mission initiative is based on the submissive answer, “Here am I. Send me!” (Isaiah 6:8), to the inquiry, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” It is an evangelistic plan and mission that encourages and prepares all members to go out to the world, participate in mission work with joy, and use their spiritual gifts that God has given in witnessing and serving Christ.
This mission initiative refers to the newly adopted strategy plan by the General Conference in this session (2021-2025) in connection with the “REACH the WORLD” which was the last session’s (2015-2020) mission strategy. It is a tool for evaluating activities made by the General Conference based on various surveys and statistical data derived from long-term enquiries of 63,756 Adventists in 13 Divisions around the world.
The initiative is not just a new program but aims to train and encourage all Adventists to use their spiritual gifts to preach the eternal gospel to the world and to live a life of service and witness.
