How to Add Missions to What You Are Already Doing

Students walking together

If you survey the average churchgoer to ask if their church is involved in missions, it is safe to assume that many are. Some would respond that they travel around the world to share God’s love, and others would say they give to various mission offerings.

Missions discipleship is vital for the spiritual development of students. Many churches already have full schedules for their students, so leaders need to find creative ways to add missions discipleship into our regular programming.

Group of Leaders

A Case for Planning

There is a great deal of buzz these days about promoting growth through casual connections. You’ll hear things like, “We don’t want to plan. We just want things to happen naturally.” There is value in ground swelling and grassroots efforts. After all, WMU was born out of such.

How to Engage Your Students in Missions Discipleship

Missions Discipleship for Students

“Guess what! I have been accepted and I am heading overseas for the summer. Can you believe it! I am so nervous but, you know, it is what we have learned about all these years and now I get to do it.

I Am a Child of God

One of the joys of traveling to events in different states is meeting new people and hearing their stories. I met a gentleman who sojourns in Richmond. I call it his temporary place, because the world has been his home.

The Flying Mission Friend

I met Andrew at a retirement for a friend. Andrew is a grown-up Mission Friend who was also involved in Children in Action and Youth on Mission and served on multiple missions trips. As a freshman in high school, he was asked to teach Mission Friends at his church.

The Great Commission

According to Barna research, 51 percent of churchgoers have never heard the term “the Great Commission.” Six percent are not sure if they have heard of it.

Different Faces, One Mission

One year has come and gone since I first walked through the doors of national WMU. A year ago, I couldn't have possibly imagined all the things I would learn, people I would meet, and places I would see.

Start Doing Your Homework

Believe it or not, fall is right around the corner. I know it’s hard to think about those crisp, cool, autumn months while the summer sun shines bright. But trust me, it’ll come faster than you think! That’s why this is the perfect time to do a little research.
