We are the Moss family and are on a mission across North America as nomadic, missionaries engaging in Christian service and discipleship. We have left our pastorship and home church to pursue a life of simplicity and invite you to share in our Abundant Journey!
What began as a feeling of unsettledness grew into a mission for our family. God had laid a heavy need on our hearts to pursue an alternative lifestyle separated from the classic 9–5 and rooted in family, faith, service, and connection with others that have also felt the exhaustion of suburban life.
During the May 2019 tornado that hit Jefferson City, MO, we found ourselves placed in the middle of disaster relief efforts. God used our family for food distribution, community care, and extending the witness and care of the church to people whose lives had been unexpectedly interrupted. Even though this was not a happy time, we felt satisfied in our obedience to the call that was placed on us.
During this time, we saw many people come onto the scene from all over the country and offer their hands to serve and minister. This experience marked a major turning point for our family and how we feel called to ministry. We saw first hand, the power in being responsive to the call. So, likewise, we have answered. God used this to refine us and send us to minister to traveling families, service to others, and proclaiming the transformative power of the Gospel.
“So, if a man has the life of God in his soul, and just a sufficiency of food and raiment to preserve and not burden life, he has what God calls great gain.” – Adam Clarke
We are excited to take part in this adventure with these families and look forward to making new relationships and connections by bringing the hope and joy of the Gospel to this community.
1 Timothy 6:6-7 tells us, “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.” An interesting notion.
The joy of this alternative lifestyle hits at the heart of this scripture. We believe God wants us to trust in Him fully. Become content in knowing Him and realize he is sufficient and enough for us. Everything else is a distraction (1 Corinthians 7:35). Our treasures are not found here (Matthew 6:19-21) but yet we choose to limit our worldly treasure in order to invest in family and faith.
