Bridge to the Lost Seminar

 

Purpose of the Seminar

 

The purpose of the Bridge to the Lost Seminar is to aid in developing a strategic, personalized, church-wide world missions ministry in your local church. This intensive training time is designed to help build a cohesive and effective leadership team in your church for the cause of world evangelization.

Especially helpful for the church's pastoral staff, key church leadership (including the World Ourtreach Team), and others interested in world missions, the seminar is held on Friday evening and Saturday. Then, through our ministry on Sunday morning, the entire congregation is brought to a deeper understanding of the biblical basis of world missions. They are challenged to become more aware of the world's needs and more personally involved in world evangelization.

Who Should Attend the Seminar?

 

We feel that it is important to have all the key leaders of your church attend this seminar. When all of the church's key leaders attend this seminar, they are better able to work together with a unified focus to develop a world missions strategy. These leaders will also provide an excellent example for the rest of the congregation to follow. Key leaders include:

Church Staff
Adminstrative leaders (Elders, Deacons, etc.)
Ministry leaders (music, finance, youth, etc.)
World Outreach Team
Potential World Outreach Team members
Other lay people who are interested in missions
Students who are interested in missions
