WEGO (Worldwide Evangelical Gospel Outreach) is a Christian mission organization based out of Florida’s Space Coast. We exist to share Jesus and show His love to those who have never heard HIs name. We focus our attention on communities with little to no gospel presence and serve the most vulnerable among them, their children. We do this through long-term, relationally-driven, and hardship-alleviating ministries that give kids Hope and every chance at purpose-filled lives in Christ.
To know WEGO is to know what we love: Jesus, Empowerment, and the Local Church. These three highly-valued imperatives drive everything we do and filter every decision we make. These are our core values, our heartbeats, and the hills we will die on.
Jesus: To Share and Show His Love
2 Corinthians 5:14-15
“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.”
Our goal is not simply humanitarian relief but Christ-transformation for people and communities. Our main purpose is to introduce salvation by faith through grace alone so that it would enable others to enter into a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ and to give people every opportunity to grow into mature followers of Him. We do this by loving and serving others as a response to and demonstration of the great love God has freely displayed to us in Jesus.
Empowerment: To Equip and Mobilize Local Believers
2 Timothy 2:2
“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.”
Our goal is to empower indigenous Christ-followers to do the work and operate each ministry as they care for and disciple their own people. Our local staff are not hired hands. They are called-out missionaries and native saints that instinctively know the language, challenges, and culture of the communities we serve. We take a field-led approach to ministry that seeks to encourage, equip, and support the ongoing efforts and leadership of our local staff. We not only strive to empower local workers but also the people we serve. We work hard to give people ownership over their own lives, making sure everything we do also helps them in the long-run.
The Local Church: To Serve and Send
“Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.”
We believe that the local church is God’s institution for discipleship, fellowship, accountability, and spiritual growth. We strive to work through and alongside local churches in fulfilling their call to make disciples of all nations and impact the world. We are committed to partner with local churches within our ministries, equip their people for these opportunities, and deploy them to serve. We do not replace the local church or work independently of them. Wherever possible, we partner with local churches in America and where we operate abroad as they mutually serve, train, and resource our ministries and each other.
