Global Impact Celebration

Global Impact Celebration 2019

For years, the Global Impact Celebration at Lavon Drive was about celebrating and honoring missionaries while highlighting how God used Lavon Drive to reach the world for Christ. In the past decade, we've raised millions of dollars for global missions, sent out dozens on short-term mission trips, and seen several called to the field full-time.

But we are not satisfied. There are more who are lost. There are more who need Jesus. This year, we're doing things differently. We turn the spotlight on ourselves. This year is about sparking a fire in our own hearts to reach more people for Christ; to get our own hands dirty and care for the hurting; to sacrifice time and money to go on a mission trip; to genuinely pray, "Thy will be done" as it concerns the work of the Great Commission. This year we want to do more than raise money for missions. We want to raise up laborers who will go into the harvest.

Pray. Go. Give. Live on Mission

Kickoff Service with Special Guest Dr. Tillie Burgin

Tillie Burgin and her family served the Lord as missionaries in South Korea. When their family came home in 1978, after a decade of service, they knew that God had a different plan for their life, a plan which involved Arlington, Tillie’s home town.

A persistent question kept coming to Tillie’s mind and heart during this time: “If we could do missions in Korea, why can’t we do missions in Arlington?” Tillie and those closest to her began to pray. They prayed for seven years. On August 1, 1986, Mission Arlington was birthed, and in 1990 started to operate under a more DFW metropolitan encompassing group, Mission Metroplex.

Mission Arlington/Mission Metroplex is a faith-based organization which utilizes hundreds of volunteers and a multitude of services to assist people with their physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual needs.
