Missions discipleship is grounded in the command of Jesus to His disciples, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19–20 CSB).
Missions discipleship in the church provides opportunities for everyone—preschoolers through adults—to be involved in missions. Churches who provide missions discipleship encourage people to grow in their faith as they learn about missions, pray for missions, support missions, and do missions.
WMU’s unwavering focus is making disciples of Jesus who live on mission.
We carry out this mission by
- providing missions discipleship resources for churches and individuals,
- offering opportunities to engage with compassion ministries, and
- equipping people through leadership development experiences.
- Biblically rooted
Scripture guides us in knowing God, His ways, His character, His mission, His redemptive acts, and His purpose for the church.
- Missions focused
Jesus commissioned His disciples to proclaim the good news disciple people of all nations, and teach them to live out the truths He taught.
- Church based
Jesus gave the church authority to act on His behalf. Teaching all ages prepares the church to fulfill His mission.
- World aware
God is always at work among all peoples, and we join Him where we discern He is calling us.
- Denominationally supportive
No one church can do alone what many churches can do together. Our voluntary cooperation extends the missions reach of the local church.
