Every church must IDENTIFY its unique role in the Great Commission

Self-Discovery Questions to Consider

  1. What ministry opportunities exist in the community around us?
  2. What resources, gifts and talents has God given to members that could be used in sharing the gospel locally and globally?
  3. What is our priority as a church on mission? How are we engaged in fulfilling the Great Commission locally, nationally and globally?
  4. As we evaluate our missions effectiveness, are there ministries that we need to stop, start or re-invent?
  5. Is missions simply an activity in our church or an identity of our church?
