WHAT IS NORTHWEST SCHOOLS OF MISSION
The Northwest Schools of Mission has been acclaimed by both churches and missionaries as a rich time of inspiration, equipping, and recruitment. There are blessings for both missionaries and churches in this unique approach.
Benefits for the Missionary
The missionary has the opportunity to be with 25 to 30 congregations, with all the advance publicity, scheduling, and arrangements provided by someone else. Travel funds are provided at the orientation meeting. When the Schools are concluded, the offerings are divided equally among the participating missionaries, and offerings that come in later are distributed to the missionaries at a later date.
Financial pleas cannot be made during the Schools; however, financial support often follows in the months and years after the Schools. Prayer partnerships are formed with many Christians, and many new relationships are established.
Benefits for Churches in the Northwest
Churches who participate in the Schools are enriched by hearing men and women from fields of service all over the world. As a result, missionary involvement grows as churches hold themselves accountable to the mandate of Jesus to “disciple the nations.” On a regular basis, new recruits for cross-cultural missions come from the churches and fan a brighter flame for total church-mission commitment. Prayer development grows. Financial commitment rises. Missions committees are encouraged. Mission education is developed.
