1 | WATCH
As God's people, we have all been given the mission to go and make disciples. We are all missionaries SENT into this world to bring people to him. We must start the journey by reorienting our hearts and minds around this central truth. Step 1 in this sending journey is to listen to this sermon by Jeff Vanderstelt.
2 | DISCOVER
In Ephesians 4, Paul describes five different ministry callings. Those callings are: Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Shepherd, and Teacher. We believe that those callings still exist today, and that when we serve through our unique calling, we are able to be the more effective as missionaries and sent people. Step 2 in this sending journey is to discover your unique calling as described by Paul in Ephesians 4.
After you take this assessment, share your results! This helps Frontline in equipping you better as you pursue deeper expressions of mission.
3 | PRAY
1 Timothy 2 teaches us to bring our prayers to God for all people, especially for those who have not yet been saved through Jesus. Prayer is at the heart of mission, as it expands our heart's capacity for compassion and allows us to see the world as Jesus does. Step 3 is to visit and pray for the people of a specific place at least one time in the next eight weeks. Maybe it's at a coffee shop you frequent; maybe it's in a neighborhood you drive by on your daily commute. Simply take an extra 10-15 minutes one day to pray specifically for those people.
Want to take it to the next level? Commit to pray for this community once a week for the next eight weeks.
4 | GATHER
Jesus calls all who follow Him to be sent, but He didn't call us to do it alone. At Frontline, we offer a number of small groups that are specifically designed to help you grow in the SENDING dimension of your discipleship journey. Step 4 in this journey is to join one of these small groups and commit to attend all or at least most of the gatherings throughout the next eight-week semester.
5 | REFLECT
At the conclusion of this journey, it is time to look back at where you've been and reflect on how God has changed you through it. The fifth and final step in this journey is to prayerfully reflect on how you have grown and been transformed in these past couple months, while also considering what your next season of discipleship holds.
