Catalysts for Kingdom Expansion

The underlying mission of everything we do at the Mergon Foundation is to be catalysts for God’s Kingdom expansion. It’s a mandate we all received from Jesus when He left the growth of the new testament church in the hands of His disciples, including you and me. He told us to ‘seek first’ His Kingdom. He said that His Kingdom was advancing, and it is happening here, now.

To be a catalyst one must have a few things in place:

Partnerships and networks

Kingdom partnerships are incredibly important to us. We take time to build relationships with a broad range of ministries across the world, primarily based in Africa and the Middle East.

Our aim is to walk a good journey with these partners, to support them and see them grow. We also connect people who may have two different pieces of the same puzzle: people who have  regional knowledge with those who have global insight; evangelist ministries with disciple-making ministries; or technology enablers with on-the-ground implementers. Each of these is essential in creating a greater result out of what we are given to steward.

Perspective and strategy

With a wider network, we gain better perspective, and perspective is essential for great strategy. Einstein once said that if he had 60 minutes to save the world he’d spend 59 minutes on problem definition. We need to be clear on what we are putting our effort into when we speak about Kingdom expansion. I believe God expects us to carry a tenderness to hear his voice (prophetic heart) with a strategic, apostolic mind.

Unity is a catalyst

In God’s economy, unity is a supernatural, catalytic ingredient. Ephesians 4 speaks about working towards the unity of the body of Christ so that “when each part is working properly, makes the body grow…” I’m certain that we will not see the effective expansion of God’s Kingdom without an intentional working towards unity. It is a catalytic ingredient that only God can activate but relies on us to move our hearts together towards one purpose with one mind.

Our aim is to be a catalyst, to work with and through the body of Christ. At times following and at times leading, but always serving. Let us take hands in unity and seek first His Kingdom and its righteousness for the glory of our Lord.
