For The Nations
Partnering with God in His heart for the nations.
Short Term Trips
At Experience Life, we believe that part of experiencing all God has for us in this life, is by partnering with God in His heart for the nations. Our Short Term Mission Trips page has all the details for the 2016 trips we’re planning. If you are interested in taking a mission trip, please complete the Short Term Mission Trip Interest Form.
Perspectives gives you a chance to be a part of the biggest story of all time. In Persepctives you will learn about God’s heart for all nations and discover what role you can play in reaching them. Your eyes will be opened and your heart will be set on fire when you discover God’s unchanging purposes and why they are relevant to you.
Perspectives is a 15 week course held on Monday nights in the Fall.
With striking clarity, Perspectives illuminates God’s unchaging promises as they unfold from Gensis to Revelation. You may never read your Bible in the same way when you experience how Jesus threads believers like yourself into His epic story.
Christian history is filled with the immeasurable power of God. From Abraham to today you’ll walk in the shoes of believers who have paved the way and set the stage to thread us all into God’s story.
Through Christ Jesus we will eventually see the expressions of the New Testament church thriving among every nation, tribe, people, and language. You will experience how God is threading diverse people into His story in culturally relevant ways.
There are endless opportunities to help complete the Great Commission. Getting threaded into the story is about discovering practical and strategic opportunities to leverage your passions, training, and expertise for His glory at home or abroad. The next class will start in August of 2015.
Goer Groups provide a clear and exciting next step on your journey to the nations. A Goer Group is a 9 month training that equips and empowers Goers for fruitful ministry by immersing them in a passionate, Christ-centered community that intentionally reaches out to internationals around them.
Goer Groups are for people that have, above all, a passion for Jesus. That passion spills over into a passion for His Kingdom and for being biblically strategic in our efforts to complete the Great Commission. These groups exist to equip and empower disciple-makers intending to go to unreached people groups within the next one to three years, and for those who will stay and mobilize others to engage the unreached.
In a Goer Group, you will increase your knowledge of Scripture and your understanding of missions. You will fellowship and pray with other Goers in a unique missional community and be held accountable to spiritual disciplines and ministry activities. But these things are not the ultimate goal of a Goer Group. Our desire is to grow in our passion for Jesus, staying focused on fulfilling the Great Commission, and because of that focus, to be driven into deeper times of fellowship, prayer, Bible study, and accountability. Mission is not just one element of the group, it is the reason the community exists.
The core of a Goer Group are these three passions:
- A passion for Jesus,
- A passion for His Kingdom and
- A passion for Biblical strategies to launch disciple-making movements among the most unreached countries of the world
At the end of a Goer Group, you will have:
- Increased passion for Jesus
- Experience in cross-cultural disciple-making
- Learned how to experience freedom from bondages
- Knowledge of many “best ministry practices”
- Solidified your understanding of your calling
- Participated in deep gospel community
- Identified potential long-term teammates
- Been discipled and coached by a caring mentor
- Met the training requirements of many sending agencies
