2
Why Mission Education?
  • What if every Christian were on-mission?
  • What if every church were fulfilling its purpose?
  • What if every church were reaching its community
    and the world?
  • What if every Christian could discover his or her
    shape or fit for living out the Great
    Commission?

3
Why Mission Education?
  • For the North American Mission Board,mission
    education is a new responsibility for a new
    agency and is seen as vitally important to our
    task of mobilizing Christians for the Great
    Commission.

4
Why Mission Education?
  • To encourage the spiritual transformation of
    regular Christians into on-mission Christians,
    using Mission Education organizations, resources,
    strategies and events designed to awaken
    Christians and churches to personal involvement
    in the Great Commission, help them to make
    adjustments that allow them to actively join God
    on-mission, and grow to be passionate advocates
    for worldwide mission causes.

Section TwoWhy Bother?
11
Why Bother?
  • God has given us this mission.
  • It was his plan all along.
  • There is no back-up plan.

12
Why Bother?
  • Matthew 419
  • Come follow me, Jesus said, and I will make
    you fishers of men.

13
Why Bother?
  • Matthew 2818-20
  • All authority in heaven and on earth has been
    given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of
    all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
    Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and
    teaching them to obey everything I have commanded
    you. And surely I am with you always, to the very
    end of the age.

14
Why Bother?
  • 2 Corinthians 517-20a
  • Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new
    creature old things are passed away behold, all
    things are become new. And all things are of God,
    who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus
    Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of
    reconciliation To wit, that God was in Christ,
    reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing
    their trespasses unto them and hath committed
    unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we
    are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did
    beseech you by us

15
Why Bother?
  • Acts 18
  • But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit
    comes on you and you will be my witnesses in
    Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to
    the ends of the earth.
