Following God is a GREAT ADVENTURE

Jesus Christ has passionate and powerful dreams for His creation. This is His vision and is the basis for our mission-vision. Since He first loved us, we want to return His love by offering our lives to fulfill His dreams. The best way for us to express our knowledge of His dreams is to list below the numerous scriptures that He seems to have burned on our heart since we first received the vision for YWAM Austin Liberty Frontiers, in 1985. We welcome you to use this scripture list as a daily Bible study that can increase your Great Adventure of getting to know God better and make Him known to others. We bless you on your Great Adventure with God, in Jesus Christ’s name. Enjoy:

Therefore He implores His people to work with Him so He can be known throughout the earth. Our heart is to honor God’s desires and be His hands and feet that make Him known among the people groups of the world. Here are some scriptures that form a road map for us to follow.

CITY-REACHING MISSIONS

Cities are dear to God’s heart for many reasons. One reason is that a diverse conglomeration of peoples dwell together in cities creating an opportunity to reflect God’s glory in relationships.
