Long Term Missions

Extending His Kingdom around the world, in the power of the Spirit, to the glory of God

Long Term Missionary Selection and Sending

We have been sending long term missionaries for over fifty years. It is our desire that we pastor those people God’s has placed into our Liberty family by helping to guide, prepare, and equip our members for succesful long term international service.

In order for new long term missionaries who consider a Liberty or LNI affiliated church their “home” or “sending” church to receive financial and pastoral support from LNI or affiliated churches, they must have followed the process outlined below.

Those who successfully complete this process and are approved will receive endorsement for their ministry throughout the network as well as increased up front support for launch and a greater percentage of monthly support from their home church in their first term of service. (see details here)

Our Basic Process:

  • Speak with your Pastor about your desire to serve as a long term missionary.
  • Your Pastor will schedule an initial meeting, in person or via video conference, with John Lambert; the LNI leader who oversees the process. This initial meeting will provide an overview of the process and potential benefits.
