GOD IS DOING A NEW THING!
Missio Church is a new church in South Durham. Didi and Amber Wong, along with their three boys, moved back to Durham last summer to prepare for this work. They are currently (Summer 2021) gathering together followers of Jesus who are excited about Missio's vision. If you are interested in being a part of this new community, please subscribe below and we will reach out to you with more information.
Missio Church is a congregation in the Presbyterian Church in America.
Didi dramatically came into relationship with Jesus as an atheist at the age of 16. He has ministered in many different contexts within the church and in many different locations- both in the States and his hometown of Hong Kong. But no matter his ministry role or location, the thing that remains constant is that Didi loves people, loves hearing their stories, and loves helping people experience how the truth of God's ongoing story transforms our lives.
Didi has contemplated church planting for the last decade. In 2020, God made a clear call for he and Amber to return to Amber's hometown of Durham to start a church for people of all different backgrounds and with a focus on sharing the embodied gospel.

ABOUT MISSIO CHURCH
"As my Father sent me, I am sending you." - Jesus
WE ARE SENT TO SHARE THE EMBODIED GOSPEL
"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth."
The Apostle John
GOD'S WORK - God works and we participate. It is God’s work of creating, renewing, and blessing this world, and we participate by listening to and following Him.
MISSION - God sends us on His mission to joyfully participate in restoring humanity to Himself and renewing this world. Our joyful purpose and discipleship in Jesus are wrapped up in our being sent.
CENTERING GOSPEL - God centers us around his gospel message of love – individually and together. The gospel is God’s work of creating, renewing, and blessing this world through Jesus’ death and resurrection.
MUTUALITY - God made us different people and engaging our differences help us more fully reflect the image of God and therefore the character of God. Our differences are many and beautiful but include personality, background, socio-economic status, ethnicity, and culture. We need each other.
EMBODIMENT - God creates us to be tangible expressions of Jesus’ love. Jesus is the embodied gospel. We authentically share the message of Jesus through our words, our actions, and our lives.
TRANSFORMATION - God transforms us from death to life and darkness to light through the Word of God – Jesus revealed in the Scriptures.
Our faith as a family has grown during this time [COVID] and we are interested in continuing to pursue where He is leading us in our neighborhood and South Durham. We have been blessed to explore this possibility with Pastor Didi Wong and his wife, Amber, over the last seven months - praying and dreaming together has affirmed for us that God is calling us to commit to Missio Church. We are excited to launch this fall and see where God would have us all come together to walk with and beside our neighbors and the people of South Durham.
