Deciding

Here are a number of things you can do to explore each stage:
Make sure you keep your pastor/minister informed as you go – pray and discuss with him/her your journey and keep them up to date.

I’m deciding what to do where.

  • Attend a missions Expo in your state. There is a major expo in most states annually (and smaller regional ones) where you’ll be able to find out about lots of opportunities at one time, and ask all your questions.
  • Make sure you keep your profile up-to-date and check it regularly for matches as the mission agencies update their information.
  • Check out the “Top Needs” section – each partner agency lists their 5 top needs and regularly updates them – a great way to keep abreast of developments on the field.
  • Identify local and formal training you will need and the best way to get that training.
  • Find the mission agency which is best for you – they are not all the same!
