Coworkers Group Bible Study

Missionary team members need to be able to articulate expectations for how women on their team will serve. The best way to provide clarity is to open the Bible together! This simple study of women serving in the early church will not only provide much needed clarity, but will also strengthen unity in your team. (See Episodes 2, 3, & 4, Coworkers Bible Study).

4 Essentials of Leadership

The identity and character of missionary leaders must be based on biblical patterns and principles. This study focuses on the Apostle Paul and the Lord Jesus’s leadership, particularly how they talk about their own leadership and how they address their own leaders. (See Episode 8, 4 Essentials of Missionary Leadership).

What is a Missionary Calling?

Many “sent-out-ones” can testify to the stabilizing power of a missionary calling. However, many people have trouble deciphering whether they have been called to mission work. This study examines what the Bible says about “calling” and what that means for “sent ones” and sending churches. (See Episodes 10 and 11 on Missionary Calling).

NT Norms: “Daily” Study

What was “normal” life for the first followers of Jesus? The New Testament shows us how the first followers of Jesus, filled with the Spirit, carried out His Great Commission. In this study we look at what the book of Acts says about the normal rhythm of life and ministry for God’s people. (See Episodes 22-25 on NT Norms).

Missionary Teaming Study

As we form and participate in missionary teams, our teams (and expectations for teams) must be based on biblical principles. In this study, we examine Paul’s missionary team of coworkers, which provides anchors that help us build biblically faithful teams. (See Episode 6, Paul’s Mission Teams).

Abiding Study

Abiding in Jesus—spiritual fellowship with Him—is the key to life, joy, and fruitfulness. Our Lord illustrates this essential truth in John 15:1-11 through the picture of the vine and the branches. This study outlines key takeaways from that passage that show us how we can abide in Him. (See Episode 30 on Abiding).
