ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Liz Olear has learned you can’t separate faith from other areas of life. Following several months of missionary service through a North American Mission Board (NAMB) Generation Send missionary internship where she also participated in aLife On Mission study, Olear was further convinced of how integrated the gospel should be to all areas of life.
She knew this meant there were opportunities every day to share her faith.
“You can’t compartmentalize when you choose to be on mission. Life on mission means your life never stops being on mission,” said Olear. “Honestly, if you think about why we’re here, our reason for being is the Great Commission. So, if we’re not setting up our schedules so we can make disciples then what are we doing with our time?”
In conjunction with Moody Publishers, NAMB launched the Life On Mission book Sept. 1. In November the Life On Mission resource kit will be available. In addition to the book, the kit includes the 3 Circles Life Conversation Guide evangelism resource and the Life On Mission Bible Study Guide, published by LifeWay.
“We want to help every believer discover the mission God has for them,” said NAMB president Kevin Ezell. “That will transform our churches and it will transform lives as well.”
The resource kit provides church leaders and individuals resources for in-depth study of how believers can live a life on mission in the midst of their busy schedules and everyday responsibilities.
LifeWay’s five-week video-driven Bible study for groups walks through God’s heart for His mission and what it looks like in a practical way to intentionally share the gospel.
Dustin Willis is NAMB’s mobilization and equipping coordinator. He co-wrote the book with Aaron Coe, vice president of mobilization and marketing at NAMB.
“These resources were developed out of a desire to see believers empowered to abandon their own mission and embrace the everyday mission of God,” said Willis. “We really believe there is nothing more freeing and nothing healthier for the church than for us to see our lives as lived for God’s mission in the world.”
