Spiritual Formation ~ MOP July 2018

Facilitators: Ken Guenther, Gary Ridley, and Pastor James Aberin

In the first few sessions, we will emphasize the importance of the participant's walk with God as a missionary, or maintaining and nurturing an ever-deepening intimacy with God while serving as a missionary. Then we will spend several sessions practicing different spiritual disciplines that can become a regular part of your daily “Quiet Time” with God and help you to focus your attention and hear what God is saying to you. These sessions conclude with a Day Alone with God scheduled during the second week > an opportunity to practice more intensely what you have been learning during these sessions.

Objectives:

  1. Remind participants of how critical their walk with God is to their success and fruitfulness as missionaries and have them do a self-evaluation.
  2. Motivate participants to commit to making intimacy with Christ their number one priority, to resolve to be like Mary (rather than Martha), and to develop a plan for how they will do so.
  3. Provide participants with practical suggestions for how to nurture intimacy with Christ on a daily basis.
  4. Practice some of the spiritual disciplines, particularly Bible reading, journaling, and prayer.
  5. Help participants prepare for a meaningful Day Alone with God.
