Ordinary People + Extraordinary Mission
Tom Mauriello
FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Mis-sion-a-ry

noun-verb \ a person on mission.

What makes a missionary?  It's not living a perfect life or becoming a pastoral superstar or even being doctrinally profound. Missionaries are those who are willing to step out in faith and follow the call of God. In this sense, they are ordinary people.

Yet this step takes big and risky faith. These ordinary people give up what the world calls good—safety or comfort or personal acclaim—for the good news of Jesus Christ. For the mission, they are losing their life for His sake (Luke 9:24). And that's extraordinary.

In 2015, you partnered with us to support over 500 extraordinary individuals and their families living on mission. As we celebrate all that God has done through Reliant in 2015, we wanted to share stories of just a few.
