2414 Project is based off of Matthew 24:14 “ And this Gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come”
Proverbs 22:6 Tells us to train our children up in the right way so that they will not depart from it. Our goal is to disciple while they are in high school in hopes that they will carry it with them in college and beyond.
We started 4 years ago with a few Jr and Sr’s in high school whose hearts for sharing the Gospel went beyond their doors at home. Since then we have taken 5 groups and are working on our 6th group to West Africa. During the course of the year they dive into apologetic discussions, theology, world religions, and discover what other cultures are like.
“Expect great things from God; attempt great things for God.” - William Carey
What Do We Do?
Our goal with 2414 is to train students to have a biblical understanding of missions. The Bible is clear that the focus of our international missions work is to be with people groups ( Language Groups) who have little to no access to the gospel. For a further explanation of this idea please see John Piper’s book “ Let the Nations be Glad”. You can also watch this video by our missions pastor Ken for more info on this idea. We train the students to understand different cultures. We teach students apologetics and how to witness in cultures who may not recognize the bible as an authoritative book. We teach students how to use stories like Jesus did to share the gospel.
After a years worth of training we take the students to Africa to work among an unreached people group. They become the leaders as they prepare and plan to spend a week in Africa.
