From a local church perspective, what does the mission of the church really entail or involve? What has it got to do with the average member in our congregation? How are churches called to fulfil the missionary mandate and how can the whole Church be involved in participating in and supporting the whole Mission of God to all the World? We will explore the notion of why and how we mobilise our churches for missions in 3 sessions. The first session will focus on building a strong theology of missions as underpinning the very purpose of the church— its raison d’être‑by looking at the concept of the mission of God in Scripture, and the types or expressions of missionary practice called forth. In the second session, we will explore the practice of missionary mobilisation through a missionary-centred approach. This will include identifying the right training, theological preparation and capacity building for support and flourishing of the missionary on the field. We look at all areas of the mobilisation process, from recruitment to long-term deployment. In the third session, we will explore the roles and responsibilities of the sending base, be it a church or mission agency. These will cover areas like local church mission policy, the recruitment process, and on-going missionary care in the field and on their return. This course is for Christians concerned with mission and especially pertinent for missions coordinators and committees.
