Slide1:  A well planned Missions Sunday is critical to the success of an ongoing world vision for the lost By Paul Brannan A MISSIONS CONVENTION IS NOT ENOUGH!:  A MISSIONS CONVENTION IS NOT ENOUGH! The primary cause of decreased faith promise giving through the year is a failure to keep missions fresh and exciting. Missions Sunday will make or break your program. PLAN CAREFULLY FOR THE MONTHLY MISSIONS SUNDAY:  PLAN CAREFULLY FOR THE MONTHLY MISSIONS SUNDAY Give this monthly missions slot a name, such as “Window on the World”. Each Sunday’s presentation may vary from 3 to 10 minutes. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE THINGS YOU MIGHT PLAN FOR MISSIONS SUNDAY:  LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE THINGS YOU MIGHT PLAN FOR MISSIONS SUNDAY Slide5:  Coordinate “Window on the World” with the world edition of The Pentecostal Evangel released on the first Sunday of each month. UTILIZE THE PENTECOSTAL EVANGEL Slide6:  USE MONTHLY VIDEOS OR DVDS These are available by annual subscription from World Missions for $48 Slide7:  There are six geographical areas in world missions plus specialized ministries: 1. Latin America and the Caribbean 2. Africa 3. Europe 4. Eurasia 5. Asia Pacific 6. Northern Asia 7. Specialized Ministries Share a prayer request from each area and have corporate prayer. Publish these requests in the bulletin on Missions Sunday. PRAY AROUND THE WORLD Slide8:  Make that nation your focus for prayer. DISPLAY A FLAG FROM A DIFFERENT NATION EACH MISSIONS SUNDAY Slide9:  CALL A MISSIONARY FAMILY Call prior to Sunday and set up the phone appointment. Amplify the sound through your system. Interview the family. Get their prayer needs and have the congregation pray while they are on the line. Slide10:  Use a skit with a mission’s theme. Present a human video with a missions song. Don’t forget mime. The more people who get involved, the more successful your effort to build missions awareness. INCLUDE YOUR YOUTH WITH MUSIC AND DRAMA Slide11:  This should be done on a limited basis. Only when the content is so exciting or so urgent that it should not be ignored. All missionary newsletters should be posted on your “World Harvest” bulletin board. SHARE EXCERPTS FROM MISSIONARIES’ LETTERS Slide12:  Share a testimony from a member who has experienced divine blessing and provision resulting from making a “Faith Promise”. The congregation will better identify with the pew than with the pulpit. Others will be inspired by these examples of victory. GIVE OPPORTUNITY FOR PERSONAL TESTIMONIES Slide13:  Publish the previous month’s missions giving in the bulletin on the first Sunday of every month. Share faith building words to encourage the continued support for missions.

You will be blessed because of your obedience to Christ’s command. One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Prov 11:24-25 NIV WHATEVER WE DO FOR THE MASTER DESERVES TO BE DONE RIGHT!:  WHATEVER WE DO FOR THE MASTER DESERVES TO BE DONE RIGHT! “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.
