One of my favorite services of the month at our church is called the Goer & Sender Coalition. . As you know a coalition is a pact or treaty among individuals or groups, during which they cooperate in joint action. Which is exactly what we believe we have between the GOERS & the SENDERS in our church. We, normally, hold this service on the last mid-week service of the month.
Here are a few key ingredients we think make it such an exciting night.
Updates from our missionaries. We are privileged to have several missionaries from our church who are on deputation. Since we meet on Thursday they are able to join us often, so they give their updates in person.
Missionary quotes from famous missionaries of the past and current missionaries. We have a group of people that go through the blogs of our missionaries over the last month and draw out some of the best material to read to our people.
We have our young MITS (missionaries in training) preach for 5 minutes.
We give an update on our Faith Promise giving.
We have a 4 day missions conference every year that this not replace but it does keep the fire going. The vital part is that we SENDERS are reminded that we in a partnership with the GOER/Missionary. The missionaries from our church who watch online are encouraged by this reminder as well.
