The Missions Pastor Podcast

Today’s conversation with Rob Gribbin. Rob is the Associate Pastor for World Missions at Shenandoah Baptist Church in Roanoke, Virginia. Shenandoah Baptist’s passion for world missions begins with their love for the missionaries they support. I asked Rob to share a little bit about why that is a foundational piece of their missions focus and how it has helped missions become a part of the DNA of the church.

First, the effectiveness of missions always follows the members having a deep understanding of their individual responsibility to be involved. Every follower of Christ should be engaged in missions in some way.

Second, giving to missions should always be more than just a pledge of financial support. Instead, it should be an intentional act of faith that God is going to provide in order for us to give.

And finally, successful missions can only happen in a church where the lead pastor makes missions the priority. If they’re not leading the church toward this, it’s an uphill battle.
