About Us


Sparrow Missions is a Kentucky-based 501(c)(3) non-profit missions organization for individuals and groups of all ages.   Founded in 2009, our heart is to mobilize Christians and equip them to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission, minister to human needs, and live out God’s will for their lives.  We strive to motivate believers to pursue Jesus Christ and take His life-giving message to the ends of the earth!

Sparrow Missions is an interdenominational organization and is not associated with any particular church or denomination.  Our staff, Board of Directors, and team members come from a wide range of evangelical denominations.  We believe strongly in creating unity within the Body of Christ.

PURPOSE & VISION


The purpose and vision of Sparrow Missions is founded on the verses Luke 12: 6-7:

6Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. 7Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

The purpose of Sparrow Missions is to reach the lost for Christ and mobilize Christians by giving them the opportunity to travel the world and share their faith with people in other cultures and countries.  Our focus is very simple!  We focus ministry, energy, and resources on those who have been largely forgotten by the world, but not by God.  This has led us to the poorest of the poor and to those who have been abandoned by their parents, families, and communities.

Sparrow Missions is committed wholeheartedly to leading short-term mission trips that enable and fuel existing long-term ministry.  Each of our missionaries will plug into one or more of the longer term ministries currently operating in and throughout San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

 

CORE VALUES


It is crucial to make known the values and beliefs that help us fulfill God’s plan for our lives.  At Sparrow Missions, we subscribe to the following core values as not only the values of a leader, but of a disciple of Christ. Our vision is to instill these core values in each person we are blessed to work with in Honduras, the United States, or anywhere else.

Intimacy with God

God looks for consecrated men and women who lead out of an intimate relationship with Him.

Passion for the Harvest

God looks for men and women who share a passion for those without Christ.  Jesus came to “seek and to save that which was lost.”  God desires that everyone be reached with the life-transforming power of the Gospel.

Visionary Leadership

God looks for men and women who are biblically committed to cast vision, set goals, mobilize the Body of Christ, and overcome obstacles in order to reach the nations for Christ.

Culturally Relevant Evangelism

God looks for men and women who live and teach the Gospel with cultural relevance, sensitivity, and power, so that the eternal truth of the Gospel will be understood and received in every culture of the world.

Multiplication of Leaders

God looks for men and women who disciple, coach, and mentor other leaders, who in turn become leaders of leaders that effectively train others.

Family Priority

God looks for men and women who are convinced that the family is God’s building block for society and make their family a priority in developing leaders

Faithful Stewardship

God looks for men and women who are faithful stewards of finances, time, and spiritual gifts in their personal lives and leadership, with the result that people are reached with the Gospel.

Integrity

God looks for men and women of integrity who live holy lives that are accountable to God and to the Body of Christ. Integrity glorifies God, protects leaders from stumbling, and encourages growth.
Core Values adopted from the International Leadership Institute, which is a global movement of men and women who are passionate to change history by training and mobilizing leaders of leaders to reach people with the life-transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
