global outreach

At Church of the Saviour, we are a missions-first kind of church. We believe in not only serving our community but serving our world. Our focus is to mobilize the church to obey Jesus’ last command to make disciples of all nations. We desire for God to receive the worship that He deserves, and want to see people from every nation worshiping Jesus in heaven. Learn more about our beliefs here.

Afghan Fall community day

Many Afghan families continue to resettle in NE Philadelphia. Several have no community support. The INN (International Neighborhood Network) and Church of the Savior are collaborating to host an Afghan Fall Community Day to gather local churches to be a friend to our Afghan neighbors. The event will be held on November 12 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm at The International Christian High School on 5500 Tabor Ave.
Here are ways you can contribute to the day:
  • Come and make a friend - befriend an Afghan family/individual you can follow up with afterwards (The INN and Church of the Savior are willing to coach churches/people who feel they need support walking alongside an Afghan family)
  • Volunteer - help set up, serve the meal, or tear down
  • Invite your Afghan friends for an afternoon of Halal food and activities. You may register your friends when you register that you’re coming (and they won’t have to register themselves). Please provide their contact info in the registration so we can be sure to follow up with them.
Our prayer is to see local churches come around these families with the love of Christ as they make a home in the surrounding community.

Strategic Focus Areas

For us to accomplish the task before us, we have a few strategic focus areas that we have chosen to have a long-term, church-wide, consistent focus. We are spending 2022 to prayerfully research and seek where God would lead us to invest amongst a group of unreached people globally.

In addition, diaspora is one of our strategic focus areas. There is a lot of movement of people in the world today and God is using that to move people near us that are from unreached places in the world. We have the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with our new neighbors.

Our Global and Local Partners

We seek to be a faithful sending church to the many Global and Local Partners that we have sent out to serve in the world. We do this through home teams that care for those living abroad, providing hospitality through our guest house for visiting partners and a focus on prayer.

In October 2021, we shared our renewed strategy for Global Outreach. Learn more about the changes here.
Our Global Outreach ministry occurs because of faithful givers like you. Did you know that COS values missions so highly that we have an account that is separate from our general fund? To help fund missions at COS, be sure to designate if you would like a portion of your gift to go to missions.
