Small Group Study on Missions (Adults)
Updated: Nov 22
YOU can participate right now in the Great Commission! You can share your testimony and the Gospel with people around you. Maybe God wants you to lead/facilitate a small group study on missions. It can be a home group, men's or women's Bible study, Sunday School class, etc. A small group study is an excellent way to mobilize others.
The following lessons were developed by a home group at the Summit Church of Little Rock. The group included people with short- and long-term missions experience, as well as experience serving locally and abroad. As of November 1, 2023...Lessons 1-4 are complete, but the others are still a work in progress.
Lesson 1: What is missions? Not everyone is a missionary, but EVERYONE can and should participate in the Great Commission. 5 categories of participation. Begin praying for the lost.
Lesson 2: Missions Throughout the Bible
Lesson 3: The Harvest is Plentiful
Lesson 4: Serve Now, Where You Are
Lesson 5: More Ways to Serve Now & Praying for Missionaries, Evangelists, Pastors and other Workers.
Lesson 6: The Importance of Perseverance
Lesson 7: So, Now What?
Lesson 8: Discipleship Part 1-Optional... based on the spiritual maturity level of the participants. Advised for new disciples or those who want a review.
Lesson 9: Discipleship Part 2-Optional...based on the spiritual maturity level of the participants. Advised for new disciples or those who want a review.
Lesson ?: Invite a guest speaker or two to address the group and answer questions. This could be a missionary or someone who has found ways to participate in the Great Commission locally--maybe both.
