Preparing to Go

Is God calling you to serve in His mission?  Here are some ideas to get ready:

  • Be intentional in being a disciple of Jesus, growing in intimacy with God and understanding of the Bible.
  • Talk to your pastor, minister, Missions Task Group and/or Ministry Leader. These are the people who have walked with you and taught you . . . what do they think?
  • Take an active interest in the world at large. Keep up with the news and ask God to give you a heart for a place or an area of need (e.g. displaced peoples).
  • Engage cross-culturally, whether in your workplace or your neighbourhood (perhaps befriend a neighbour who is from a different culture to you). Consider a short-term trip.
  • Pray for 1 or 2 cross-cultural workers, and for the nations in which they serve. We can connect you with people who are working in your area of interest.
  • Do some formal learning. Complete either the Perspectives Course (1 night/week for 12 weeks ) or the Kairos course (1 night/week for 9 weeks).
  • Grow your ministry skills. Take a responsibility in your church.
  • Attend missions conferences, events and information nights. Learn more!
  • Participate in activities that stimulate your missions heart
  • Join a mission prayer group
  • Find a mentor to keep you accountable in the above activities.
