How do I get started?
Once you are registered, check out the wealth of missions materials available for your use in the local church. Most of these resources are free of charge.
Then, work with your pastor to develop a missions plan for your local church, and stay connected with World Missions to receive regular missions updates and news. You can share this information with your local church and keep missions needs, prayer requests, and opportuinities for short-term missions trips before the church throughout the year.
