Training for Mission Leadership Developlement

Mission Discipleship

What is the relationship between mission and discipleship?  Can those even be separated?  How does your congregation reach out and build key relationships within the community?  Is your community changing? What should the focus be, and where should the church begin to develop its outreach mission?  Utilizing a systems approach, this course will explore various models as well as MissionInsite data and general community information to help congregational leaders gain a greater understanding of needs, challenges, and ministry opportunities.

1hr 30 Min

Mission Committees

Local Church Mission Committee Mission is all about relationships. We may engage in a construction or medical project, to be sure. But, at the end of the day, mission is more about the relationships we build with others in our own community and around the world than about how many nails we hammered in a wall. Envisioning how your church can be involved in God’s mission can be both exhilarating and daunting. But, with some careful and honest planning, your church can faithfully say, “Here I am, Lord. Send me.” Small and rural churches are especially encouraged to attend.

1hr 30 Min

VIM/Yource Force Team Leaders

Do you want to lead a team on a mission or to a Youth Force site.  This training is for you.  In this 90 minute workshop you will learn all the steps from how to register your team, what forms you will need, all about travel, the insurance and more.  We will spend time what to do before the mission, during the mission and after the mission. Learn best practices how to apply them.  We will learn from each other.  

1hr 30 min

Community Development

“Engaging the Community” sounds like a monumental task. There are so many people and entities that might make the task seem daunting. When one relationship is developed, it leads to another. Once the vision of the common good is established, others will naturally be attracted to the cause. The key is to begin. You will learn to become strategic in your community development to maximize your efforts. You will hear real-life examples and techniques that may be translated to your own mission field. Come ready to engage “your” community.

1hr 30 Min

Young Adults and Mission

“Where are the young adults?” 

We will discuss what young adults are seeking spiritually and the best ways to engage and excite them within your church. 

1hr 30 Min


Through this workshop, you will be introduced to a powerful tool at our disposal called “Mission-in-site.” This tool allows us (Oklahoma Annual Conference) to dive down into the demographics of our mission field. It doesn’t matter where you live, this tool provides up-to-date demographic information so that we can better serve our mission field. This workshop is designed to explore the capabilities and possibilities of applying this tool to the work of your local congregation. Come and become an ethnographer in training!
