Teaching girls of God's missions message is a joy because you can teach them of the heart of God. Investing in the next generation of missional leaders is not only a privilege, but also a gift. It has been found that one person with a passion for missions can impact an entire group of children.
Developing a missional Heart
As you lead girls to develop a heart for missions, consider the value of missions awareness and involvement brings to girls, to families, and to churches.
In Girls in Action, girls learn
- a biblical worldview
- ways to demonstrate Christ's love to others
- how God is working around the world
- their part in God's plan.
If your church already has Girls in Action and you need either leadership training or just some advice to help your group grow, please feel free to give us a call. We have a missional lifestyle strategist waiting to hear from you! Call us at 214-828-5150.
