Mission Academy Living the Missionary Call About this Life Night The night begins with a game that will test the teens’ knowledge of missionary activity. The answers from the game lead into the teaching for the night during the Proclaim. This teaching is foundational for the teens to understand their call to mission within the Church. The Break gives teens an opportunity to reflect on the ways they will commit to a missionary life using the four missionary pillars: prayer, community, ongoing spiritual formation, and outreach. After this they will meet in “community groups” and develop a mission plan for the environments in which they spend the most time. The night closes with a prayer of commission for the teens and a challenge to courageously go out into their mission field to spread the Gospel. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to teach teens what it means to be missionary, to raise awareness of Life Teen Missions, and to invite and empower the teens to be missionary in their own lives.

Its mission is to spread the Good News to all people. As members of the Church and disciples of Christ, we share in this mission. Living a “missionary” life does not mean that a person has to travel to a far-away country to serve others; each person is called to live as a missionary in his or her daily life. There are four pillars to missionary spirituality: prayer, community, spiritual formation, and outreach. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
