In this Missions 101 training session, Sarah West, International Ministries Administrative Coordinator, will be sharing a foundational principle necessary for anyone feeling called to serve in missions. A personal relationship with Jesus Chris is central to being the anchor you will need to sustain the challenges in reaching out to the Nations. We know this relationship is filled with highs and lows, so understanding where you are in your journey is critical. Being rooted in Christ will give you the spiritual foundation you need to have the greatest impact possible.
A central passion that WorldVenture missionaries share is the desire to see lives truly transformed. Over the last 70 years, we have seen hundreds of thousands of lives transformed. But it has always begun with the transformed life of the one being sent out. Missions can be extremely challenging. It’s a journey of constantly overcoming cultural differences, leaving behind friends and family, and encountering some of the most spiritual resistance you may ever encounter. These challenges make it extremely difficult for a missionary to thrive and have an impact unless they have been spiritually rooted in a transformational faith in Jesus Christ.
