You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8
Harbour's Lead Out Vision is based on Acts 1:8. In this verse we see four geographic areas. We have developed 4 areas of ministry based on these. They are:
Jerusalem: Walk Compassionately – Meeting Needs
Judea: Church Planting - September 2018 Launch
Samaria: National Missions – Quebec Church Planting
Ends of Earth: Global Missions – Launch Leaders
