Meaning, how to reach your potential, live life with meaning and purpose, and enjoy and embrace the way God has wired you to glorify Him in your own unique way. You may not change your job, life plan, or goals… or maybe you will? But you will know if you are living life with purpose!

As women, we tend to worry about almost everything. We want to let go and trust God but at times it’s challenging. In this study, Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow, we will search the Scriptures to find calm and contentment through trusting in God’s promises. As we bring our worry to the feet of the Father, we can experience His true peace.
 

Men’s Groups

Thursdays • February 17 – April 28 • 6:45 PM
or
Fridays • February 18 – April 29 • 6:00 AM
Meets Bi-Weekly • No Material Cost

Our men’s groups provide the opportunity for men to grow and learn in community at Mission Church. This spring, we will be working through a study entitled Be a Godly Man. God has created men to have incredible strength. But today’s culture has hijacked masculinity, distorting strength into passivity and abuse. In this Bible study series, Pastor Joby Martin invites men to embrace God’s definition of masculinity and to step into His calling upon their lives to wield their strength on behalf of others. God has designed men to be protectors, providers, and defenders. When men act like men, everyone flourishes. The format of our time together will be a mixture of video, large group discussion, and small group discussion.
 

Grief: God’s Healing for Life’s Losses

Wednesdays • February 16 – April 13 • 6:45 PM
Meets Weekly • Material Cost: Donation

Grief impacts our lives in different ways because loss comes in many shapes and sizes. The death of a loved one, infertility and miscarriage, a long-held dream that is dashed, and long-term suffering to name a few. In this class, we will walk together through a journey of healing as we look into to God’s Word together and encourage each other in community. We will use a resource entitled God’s Healing for Life’s Losses by Bob Kelleman. We invite you to join us if you’re looking for help and hope in the losses of life that have left its imprint on your heart.
 

How to Study the Bible

Wednesdays • February 16 – May 11 • 6:45 PM
Meets Weekly • $25 Material Cost

How to Study the Bible is a class to help you look at the Book. Carefully interpreting the Bible is thrilling because it helps you know and worship God. Only God satisfies, and you most glorify God when He most satisfies you. This course will hep you read the Bible as the Bible itself demands to be read. You will learn to derive your hermeneutic (that means your method of interpreting the Bible) of the Bible from the Bible. As you grow to understand how the context, author’s intent, and individual parts form the message, you will be transformed and find satisfaction in the nature of God. And when you understand the Bible better, your praise gets richer! Join us in the great adventure of personal Bible study.
 
 

LEADERSHIP TRACK

Leaders and the Early Church

Wednesdays • February 16 – May 11 • 6:45 PM
Meets Weekly • $75 Material Cost (Scholarships Available)
Helpful Prerequisites: Acts and Pauline Epistles

The overall objective of this course is to see how leadership training done in the local church empowers the church to participate in the expansion of the gospel with the same vision and effectiveness as the first church at Antioch. It will develop a basic understanding of leadership in the Early Church, specifically how ministers of the gospel complement elders and deacons. Rediscovering the Antioch tradition of the Early Church will provide a model for similar global impact for the expansion of the gospel today. Finally, an effective multi-level leadership development strategy built on the foundation of the New Testament will be designed to meet the leadership challenges of the 21st century.

God’s kingdom will be built. He is going to do this through a community of believers.

SCHOOL OF MINISTRY

Pastoral Shepherding Module

Saturdays • February 12 – May 14 • 7:30 AM
Meets Weekly • $75 Material Cost (Scholarships Available)
Prerequisite: Completion of all Leadership Level Classes

The overall objective of this modular is to develop your character, knowledge and skill to pastorally lead the discipleship and shepherding needs of a congregation. Development of the personal maturity required to shepherd your own heart is the foundation. Understanding how to delegate the weight of shepherding and discipleship tasks strategically and effectively is essential. Leading through personal crisis, designing a wedding, guiding a couple through premarital counseling, preaching at a wedding, caring for those who lost a loved one, speaking at a funeral, organizing the discipleship of members, and how to minister to the sick and lonely are all skills that will be taught. Becoming shepherds of God’s flock is the goal of this modular.
