Earlier last month, NAMS saw the second gathering of the Knoxville Centurions. It was a real joy, catching up with some old friends and making new ones, and we’re thankful for all of you who joined and supported us. Building a community of support for global mission in Knoxville continues to be a high priority for NAMS.
Our especial gratitude goes to Jimmy Haslam, of Pilot Flying J and The Cleveland Browns, for taking time out of his busy schedule to talk to us. His insights and experience were both fascinating and invaluable. All who attended were appreciative of his willingness to openly share.
What is the Centurion Project?
The Centurion Project is a project that helps to build support for global mission within the church here in America. Though not everyone’s primary calling is to global mission, we believe that everyone is called to be part of the mission of Jesus in the whole world, and to support it. The Centurion Project helps to train people who may not be called to ‘be an overseas missionary’, how to support the work of those who are, and particularly how to be effective disciple-making disciples right where they live.
In a nutshell; the Centurion Project equips people, working locally, to support the spread of the Kingdom globally. It teaches people how to live the Great Commission, wherever they are, while still being a part of God‘s work on a larger, global scale.
