Why Missions Discipleship Is Important for Women

“WMU in the church improves our vision of the world. It inspires us to meet the needs of people around us and to pray for and give to those needs that others are meeting in the distant places.”

Why am I here? What is God’s purpose for my life? How can I share Christ’s love with those who need Him?

Missions discipleship leads women to answer these questions as they come to recognize their value in Christ and explore how to fulfill Christ’s purposes.

As women build community, they come together to develop global perspectives and sharpen their understanding of how to live missionally.

Through Women on Mission, women:
• learn about missions,
• pray for missions,
• support missions,
• do missions and make disciples of Jesus who live on mission!

What is Women on Mission

Women on Mission is a missions discipleship group designed to equip women to become active disciples of Christ as they live on mission for Him.

Women on Mission members seek to live out missions through missions projects, ministries, prayer, giving, and Bible study. The purpose of the organization is to provide every person with the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel.

How to Start Women on Mission

1. Pray. Involve your church leadership in seeking direction for starting and leading Women on Mission.

2. Determine the focus. Women on Mission groups often revolve around one of the three monthly articles in Missions Mosaic, using suggestions from Women on Mission Leader or Women on Mission Leader: Posters Plus. Groups also meet around common missions project interests.

3. Identify leaders. Identify, enlist, and train a group coordinator and others willing to lead.

4. Choose resources. Review available resources and choose the ones best for your situation. Consider participating in WMU or state leadership training.

5. Order resources. Each woman should receive Missions Mosaic to help her grow in her knowledge of missions.

6. Check the calendar. Schedule a time and location to meet.

7. Promote. Invite all women to attend through personal contacts, email, Facebook, or flyers.
