Foursquare Pastor Obed Orozco-Bonilla, Foursquare President Glenn Burris Jr. and other Foursquare leaders discuss the future of The Foursquare Church as it seeks reconciliation and cooperation among the world’s varied people groups, with the goal of reaching all ethnicities, nationalities, generations and genders with the gospel. Recorded live at Connection 2012 in Phoenix.
As a worldwide movement, The Foursquare Church embraces people of all ethnicities, nationalities, generations and genders. But while Foursquare focuses its efforts internationally through Foursquare Missions International (FMI), denominational leaders are quick to remind us to not forget to reach the many people groups residing in the United States.
“We are not going to look the same,” says Obed Orozco-Bonilla of Foursquare’s future. Along with his wife, Rae, Obed pastors Grace to the Nations (Tucson Grace Chapel Foursquare Church), a bilingual congregation in Tucson, Ariz. As God builds with living stones, not stagnant bricks, he asserts, we must be willing to reconcile with others to become truly multicultural and absolutely effective.
Foursquare President Glenn Burris Jr. agrees. During this live session at Connection 2012 in Phoenix, he states goals for Foursquare’s Five Targets and encourages leaders to look to a prophetic future that includes people of all nationalities.
General Supervisor Tammy Dunahoo and Associate Director of Foursquare Missions International’s Global Operations Ted Vail applaud nationwide church multiplication efforts and share missionaries’ laudable work abroad. They also provide ways to reach the nations as missionaries to stateside cities and immigrant communities.
