Members of the WMI staff are available to provide mission education in a variety of settings: presbyteries, sessions, mission committees, retreats, church school classes, and mission conferences. They are willing to preach, teach, or consult. Contact us today to schedule a visit to your church!
Here are some retreats, workshops, and presentations our staff can offer to your church or conference.
“A Women’s Intuition to Love and Serve” is a women’s retreat that focuses on the legacy of women in mission and the unique role they have played in God’s purposes for the world. Learn the stories of women who have given their lives to missionary service and be inspired by their faith, obedience, and courage in serving God around the world. Women have unique and important gifts to share with the world!
“Mission Possible” is a church-wide or family retreat that focuses on the heart issues of mission for your church family. Sessions include interactive activities and discussions for youth and adults. Materials for young children can also be provided. Teaching sessions include: Is Mission Possible?: De-bunking Mission Myths; Whose Mission is it?: Discovering God’s Heart for the Nations; and What is my Mission?: Discovering your Role. Your church and family can be involved in mission in more meaningful ways. Learn how!
