Where am I going on outreach?
Where am I Taking My Outreach Team?
This form was invented to help outreach leaders see the bigger picture. Without considering the context, some outreach leaders can come up with zany ideas -- and often want to go to highly 'reached' areas. Working through this should help the leader 'hear from God' more accurately. I remember the first time I heard Loren Cunningham talk about Central Asia -- I'd never heard of Central Asia! It is hard to hear God saying go to some place you've never heard of!!!
Purpose of This Form
To help me think and pray through the decision of where to go and what to do with the outreach I will lead. After I have filled in this form I will have confidence that what God is leading me to do will fit into the bigger picture; it should lead me deeper into God's plan for my own life and it should contribute to establishing the church in the location I come up with.
What Should I do With This Form?
Please talk with your base leaders about this form and then give one copy of this form to the person on your base who is responsible for targeting and send another copy to ........at Harpenden.
