Madison has developed a local mission effort for hosting other groups to come into our mission field to share the love of Jesus. We call it 13:2 Missions. Why 13:2? It comes from Hebrews 13:2: “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”
It is our desire to see young people putting their faith into action and serving in the name of Jesus. We believe Jesus has called us all to serve the vulnerable and that He will meet us there at that work. Our congregation is located in a neighborhood that has many needs and we need partners to help us in the work. Please join us as we clean up the neighborhood, build relationships with our neighbors, sort resources, distribute resources, educate, garden and grow food, pray over our community, and as we share the love of Christ in other practical ways. We know planning a mission trip can be stressful and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to say Yes.
13:2 provides housing, meals and a variety of missional work in Madison or the Nashville area for our guests. As the program grows, we have helped Coptic Christians in Nashville by cleaning the neighborhood they live in and handed out clothing and furniture. Visitors have also worked at our church Benevolence Center preparing meals for Meals on Wheels, organizing clothes in the clothing room, and working in the church garden which feeds back into the Benevolence Center. There are options to serve with Nashville Inner City Ministry, Second Harvest Food Bank, Churches of Christ Disaster Relief, and Project Connect Nashville just to name a few. We can tailor your service opportunities to your liking. Housing is located at our church facility. We have 2 rooms that can house a total of 24 people. Being a visitor in the 13:2 Missions at Madison Church of Christ, provides use of our commercial kitchen, use of a cook/service coordinator, a designated area for devotionals, & use of our Youth area and gymnasium.
Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to schedule a week or weekend with us. The 13:2 Team is Nathan Hale, Abby Christian, & April Moore.
