Why Missions Discipleship Is Important for Young Women

"The ability to follow God's will in spreading the wonderful news of His Son's sacrifice for our sins has given a joy to my sould like nothing else. Hrlpinh missionaries across the globe with money, prayers, and resources is a blessing to me more than to them."
- Christinia Rodrigquez-Pavon

From 18-34 years of age, young women experience mulitple transitions. Some go to college while others enter directly into the workforce. Some purchase houses while others enjoy having freedom to move around. Some begin establishing families while others move forward in life single. It frequently seems that change is the only constant during these years.

Missions Discipleship for young women is particularly important to help them develop a missional mindset.

Missions discipleship leads young women to lives of deeper devotion as they live out their relationship with Christ through missions involvement, Bible study, and prayer.

What is myMISSION?

myMISSION is WMU's missions discipleship group for young women. my MISSION's purpose is to teach young women to follow Jesus by serving others and sharing the gospel in word and deed. As they build community, these women explore their faith together and participate in hand-on mission projects.

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.
