Live Sent Week

Live Sent Week

Aug. 21 - 27

"You are Sent" is something we say every week at the Summit. How is God calling you to be engaged in the mission this year?

Live Sent Week is a week in the life of our church that will help us broaden our view about what it means to be engaged in missions both locally and internationally. We will be asking the question: How is God calling you to be engaged in the mission this year? We will be helping you answer this question in the Sunday Sermon, Sending 101 class, and in breakouts throughout the week.

Sending 101

Wednesday, Aug. 24 | 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Brier Creek Campus

We end every worship service with the same three words: “You are sent.” But have you ever thought about what that means? In Sending 101, we’ll clarify just what it means to live sent, discuss how local, national, and international sending relate to one another, give some clear next steps, and leave some time for Q&A.

Overcoming Barriers to International Missions

Marsela Hughes and Chris Jacobsen

There are so many barriers that stop us from putting our “yes on the table” when it comes to international missions. Whether you are struggling to imagine your life overseas or just don’t know where to start, this forum is for you. We will discuss creative ways to make disciples of all nations both around the world and in RDU, no matter our life stage and circumstance.

Prayer

Every great mission movement in history can trace its origin to prayer and more specifically, people praying together in community. And as we grow in our heart for the nations, we should also grow in our love for everyone in our life. Our prayer should be for both the people God has already put in our lives as well as those He will call us to.

Grow

It is important that we continue to grow in our understanding of God's love for all people and his call to us to join Him in sharing His love for them. Here are resources/opportunities to help you on your journey.

Give

If you tithe regularly, you have already begun because everytime you give to The Summit Church, a portion of your money goes to the work we do in local and international sending. There are also other ways that God may be calling you to give, whether it is to support a missionary working overseas or support a local organization caring for the needs of others in the name of Christ.

Give

Engage

Many times our first impulse is to "do", but a better way to think about this is to "engage." Find a way to engage in your life, your community and the nations. We have organized opportunities to help you engage your community and the nations. Simply, find a way to engage in God's mission and see how He uses it in your life to bless others in RDU and around the world.
