For some that journey has been a long one with many twists and turns, while others of you are just starting out.
Along the way you will encounter opportunities and will have to make decisions about the way you go. God leads and guides, He shares His wisdom, and will prompt you as you search for His direction and will.
Often God will bring others along side to walk with you, to help you to discern His will and His leading. As WEC Australia we hope to be among those walking together with you.
Stepping Into Mission provides opportunities for us to walk alongside you to help you discover if God wants you to go overseas to share Jesus where they don't know His name.
Or maybe he is calling you to support others who do go. Or to engage in mission right where you are. There is a role for all God's people in fulfilling his great commission.
With something for primary schoolers through to adults, there is a step for you to take into mission. Step into mission with WEC today.
The Stepping Into Mission program has options for you if you're exploring your first or next steps in mission, investigating short-term mission, or if you're interested in a gap year or internship.
Which step is for you?
Exploring a missions journey is no different.
The First Step Kids programme provides an introduction to missions for children, highlighting the need of people all around the world to hear about Jesus and of the need for people to go overseas as missionaries.
With option for churches, schools and individuals, why not take a first step?
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. (1 Timothy 4:12)
As well as taking a First Step on the mission journey, you need to be willing to take the Next Step in order to keep moving forward. For teens, there is both a First Step Teens programme and a Next Step Teens programme.
Like First Step Kids, our First Step Teens programme provides an introduction to missions and highlights the need of people around the world to hear about Jesus and of people to go overseas as missionaries.
Next Step Teens provides a opportunity to dig a little deeper and really start to engage with the idea of what God is doing around the world to make Jesus' name know, loved and worshipped by those who don't know Him yet.
For many long term missionaries their initial sense of calling to missions happens during their teen years. Having opportunities for this to be fostered is important to see that calling fullfilled.
Are you feeling it? What will you do about it?
Stepping into adulthood brings much excitement for the future. In many way life begins as childhood and school are over. Now you are legal, you are free. The question of what you do with that freedom lies before you.
That inkling in your spirit, that whisper to Go and make disciples is still there. How will you foster that call? How will you explore what God is saying to you. Take the time to learn, to seek God, to walk with others on that path to missions.
Explore what God is doing in the world.
Take your NEXT STEPS to learn, discern and be equipped for the future.
