Eliminating Poverty in Your Community

Ashley Fan, National Acteens Panelist

During the summer of 2017, I went to a missions camp in Washington, D.C. with my youth group. This camp was meant to teach us about urban poverty so we visited different places throughout the city to learn about poverty and to discover how we could get involved in eliminating poverty.

How Do You Make a Difference?

Helping others

What are you doing to make a difference in someone else's life?

When you do something that matters to someone else, you can feel the satisfaction from the positive impact. You know you are making a difference.

When Jesus was on earth, He spent His time teaching His disciples how to complete a task that mattered. That task was then charged to us. It still matters and makes differences in so many lives.

Fun and Fresh Fundraising Ideas for your Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

Great Multitude

The best Christmas gifts don’t always come wrapped in pretty paper and tied up with a matching bow on top.  Each December, Southern Baptists join together in one cooperative effort to raise money for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. This is an incredible gift for those missionaries serving around the world.  With 100% of funds raised going directly to the missionaries on the field, churches are looking for new ways to motivate their people to be a part of reaching the nations.  

Here are 7 fun and fresh ideas you may want to consider as you plan to promote and fundraise for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering:

Seeing the Unseen

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase the unseen? Perhaps like most people, you think about people who are hidden from society: victims of human trafficking or vulnerable children. We know these people are out there and we would help them in their plight if only we could see them.

In this fast-paced world, adult leaders need to not only model gratitude for those who are often unseen but also actively lead young people in serving those who serve.

Leader Devotion: Rohingya (Matt. 7:24–27)

Use this devotion to deepen your personal understanding of the Scripture Focus on Matthew 7:24–27 for the Discipleship Lesson in the Missions Journey: Students unit on Rohingya.

How to Add Missions to What You Are Already Doing

Students walking together

If you survey the average churchgoer to ask if their church is involved in missions, it is safe to assume that many are. Some would respond that they travel around the world to share God’s love, and others would say they give to various mission offerings.

Missions discipleship is vital for the spiritual development of students. Many churches already have full schedules for their students, so leaders need to find creative ways to add missions discipleship into our regular programming.
