WHY WE EXIST:
WE BELIEVE IT’S A GIFT
Vocation – the unique ways each of us are created to love God and serve the world — is God’s gift to our communities, our cities, and this world.
Whether you live and work in New York, Riyadh, Hanoi, or Tashkent, we are all called to – and more importantly – created for the purposes of God. What are God’s purposes for our life?
It begins right there in Genesis, “In the beginning…”
Uniquely fashioned with every skill, natural ability, interest and passion, the Creator carefully crafted his image-bearers to cultivate, care, and shape the world he created. They were given one simple mandate – to live, work, and serve as reflections of God’s glory and goodness so that others would know him.
Sent out into every place and every workplace – they were a community of image-bearers on the move.
Maybe you’ve been told that to be “in ministry” or to work as a “missionary,” you need to leave your job, get specialized training, and join a certain type of organization. Or perhaps you’ve been waiting around for that special “call” and feel excluded from what God is doing in his world. But nothing could be farther from the truth.
In fact, you, a nurse, engineer, taxi driver, homemaker, or web developer, have a critical place in the mission of God!
We hope that you wrap your entire life around the purposes of God, and that you discover your role in God’s Kingdom story. Why? Because it’s the everyday places of schools and hospitals, offices and shops, farms and factories around the world, where the hope of Jesus is needed most.
Founded in 2016, Scatter Global was started by a group of Jesus followers with a passion to see Jesus known throughout the world.
The harsh reality is that while 1% of believers have stepped into some form of “full-time ministry,” the 99% of the church remain on the bench. They have not engaged in what has been referred to as “missions” because “missions,” as we know it, has been divorced from our everyday lives – most certainly from our everyday workplaces.
It’s often said that God’s people should go out into the world, but we’re already there! God’s people are already in the world everyday as teachers, software engineers, farmers, athletes, accountants, and hairdressers.
Our vision is to see Jesus represented in every industry and every place, through women and men being deeply present, loving their neighbors and doing good, holy, redemptive work in communities around the world.
Scatter Global affirms the original, God-give role of every believer as an image-bearer and disciple-maker within their places of work and influence. We join with thousands of other global voices, organizations, and churches in affirming that all of life is sacred, andnothing unworthy of God’s restorative purpose.
