Our Mission: Missions Through Unity
We believe that unity in the body of Christ is the main catalyst for missions. The synergy created through Kingdom partnerships is essential to God’s mission in our world today.
“...that they may be one as we are one.” -John 17:22
Our Vision: To be a base camp for missions to the 10/40 window
When summiting a mountain there needs to be a base camp for expeditions to acclimate, rest and restock supplies. Footstool exists to serve as a base camp to reach the 'summit’ of the 10/40 window.
We serve by being a platform for networking and offering member care, training and financial support through fiscal sponsorship. Our aim is to serve and bring together those involved in 10/40 window work- long term missionaries, organizations, local churches, and those interested in getting involved in missions.
Our Values: Synergy, Servanthood, Stewardship
Synergy: Multiplying resources by working together
Servanthood: Commitment to serve and not be served
Stewardship: Pursuit of excellence compelled by the love of Christ
