“Where do we get started with missions?” That’s the question we hear from many churches.
That is why we partner with IMB to create our International Mission Study (IMS) that can be used as a one-time missions event at your church or as a mission study for any age of small group.
Every year we work with IMB to choose a topic or location on which to focus for the IMS.
The IMS can be used any time of year or as a part of your church’s focus during the SBC Week of Prayer and Mission Study for International Missions and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering every December.
Zambia, a beautiful country in Africa, is famous for its unique landscape and the Zambezi River. Lead your church to learn how the gospel is being shared in Zambia.
International Mission Study: Zambia provides resources for every age level in your church to learn about, pray for, and support international missions.
