Why Missions Discipleship Is Important for Young Women
“Adults on Mission has been instrumental in keeping our church informed about local and international missions needs and encouraging the members to support missions offerings.” —Sylvia Todd
Missions discipleship empowers adults to become more effective witnesses in their world. When adults explore current missions efforts around the world, delve into the biblical mandate for missions, and become personally involved, they clearly see their responsibility to take the gospel to the nations.
As adults grow and learn, they will seek out needs in their communities and become involved in meeting those needs. A commonly asked question is, “How is God calling us to meet this need?”
The goals of Adults on Mission are to learn about missions, pray for and give to missions, and disciple others to live on mission for Christ.
What is Adults on Mission
Adults on Mission is a coed organization
for women and men over 18 years old.
This missions discipleship group prepares
men and women to work together to
share the gospel of Jesus Christ and to
hear God’s call.
Most Adults on Mission groups are
activity-based, so the groups can be
formed to meet an identified need in
your community or when an existing
small group decides to become involved
in missions. Groups can also be formed
around natural networks or affiliations
(such as professions) or around life issues
(such as parenting or retirement).
By leading young women to learn about missions, pray for and give to missions, and do missions by engaging in missions activities, myMISSION strives to create an environment where young women can build relationships that send them into a lost world.
