Redemption Church is engaged in global mission through our partnership with the Christian and Missionary Alliance, who equips and sends missionaries to plant churches around the globe. Overseas we have several missionaries who work in sensitive areas. We would love to ask you to join us in praying for these families as they continue the work of bringing the Gospel to all and inviting everyone into the Kingdom of God.
Sojourn Uganda is a church plant in the Wabigalo slum of Kampala, Uganda. God is doing great things through their ministry as people are led to Jesus, discipled, and sent on mission. Our partners there, Besweri & Meredith Walujo, just welcomed their first child this summer. Besweri currently works as a pastor at Sojourn. His job includes preaching, running a mentorship program and a student tutoring program. You can follow them on Facebook to get to know more about their ministry. Throughout the year Redemption Church hosts the Handmade Fair which functions as a fundraiser with a large portion of the proceeds going to support Sojourn Church.
C & L are located in Asia & have 3 children. They currently work in a city where there are few believers. They provide language classes to their community, lead a small house church, and host regular coffee meetings with the goal of sharing the Gospel.
S & J are located in West Africa and have 4 boys. S works with locals on implementing better farming practices, obtaining better prices for crops, & helping marginalized people start farms. He also works in the slums of their city to help provide social services, while J works as a teacher at an international school.
GME: Each year we host Global Missions Emphasis week in the Fall & Spring. During that week we focus on our global or local partners and get to hear more about the work they are doing. If you are interested in learning more about missionaries with the C&MA check out Alliance Missions here.
Envision is a branch of Alliance Missions whose goal is to raise up missional leaders to share the Gospel. They have sites all over the world and we have partnered with their Atlanta site in the past. It is our goal as a church to partner with them by going on short term trips in the hopes of growing our own heart to be missional in Augusta and across the world. If you are interested in going on a short term trip with our church, please email our missions mobilizer, Ashley Dickerson..
We primarily support these ministries through the Great Commission Fund (GCF). As the primary source of funding for Alliance ministries, the GCF is one of the most effective ways for you to become an active participant in God’s plan to reconcile all peoples to himself.
If you would like to give toward global missions efforts at Redemption Church you can designate funds for the Great Commission Fund or Sojourn Uganda.
Loving Our City for the Good of All
The Augusta Handmade Fair
The Augusta Handmade Fair is a fundraiser held by Redemption Church to benefit Sojourn Uganda. The Artist Series AHF merch from each event also benefits a local organization such as Project Happy Water (Fall 2022), Hope for Augusta (Spring 2023), Westobou (Fall 2023). This event also allows us to support local makers, artists, businesses, and organizations.
During the year we host events and partner with different non-profit organizations to serve our community and love downtown. Some of the ways we do this are through volunteering at Iron Man, hosting the Augusta Handmade Fair, participating in Trick or Treat on Broad Street, supporting local foster families, volunteering with Hope for Augusta and more. We would love to help you get connected in serving our community. If you are interested in learning more, please email our Missions Mobilizer, Ashley Dickerson.
Downtown Resource Cards
We recognize that many of us downtown have encountered those in need in our neighborhood & that we often feel ill equipped to help. Whether it be food, a place to stay, or some other request, we as a church have often felt the tug of wishing we knew where to point people for help. The Downtown Resource Cards were born out of this desire. This card is meant to help us meaningfully engage with those in need and connect them with helpful resources. For more information or to request cards email our Missions Mobilizer, Ashley Dickerson or get more info here.
