Every church must EQUIP its members to live out their unique role in the Great Commission

Self-Discovery Questions to Consider

  1. How are we equipping members to use their gifts and skills to live on mission?  How are we preparing children, youth and adults to live on mission?
  2. How can we leverage our current ministries to equip our members to live on mission together? (e.g., Sunday school, small groups, children’s/youth ministries, etc.)
  3. How are we equipping members to share the gospel in everyday life?
  4. How are we equipping members to understand and share the gospel cross culturally?
  5. How are we teaching, communicating and connecting the value of giving through the Cooperative Program to fulfill the Great Commission?
