Using Missional Communities to Prepare the Next Generation of Global Workers

Friday, 1:30 – 2:45 PM

Presented by: Greg Carter & Dave C.

The local church’s call is to make disciples who make disciples. Missional communities offer a unique and strategic approach to training wanna be missionaries. Under the direction of church staff, the cohort group moves into a neighborhood and does life and ministry in community. The intense life-on-life mentoring and ministry in a cross-cultural context uniquely equips future global workers in ministry skills, character development and navigating team relationships. Doing this in the context of the local church strengthens sending relationships and long-term caregiving. Long before the candidate fills out his application for “Beyond My Dreams” mission agency, local church leadership will have prepared him for the rigors of cross-cultural living.
