Looking ahead there is a steadily increasing range of opportunities for us to share our faith and use our gifts in God’s service. This might be with SU Scotland, in your church or in a Christian Union. COmMISSION Online is here to help you get started and grow in teamwork and leadership.
‘All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.’ (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV)
What is COmMISSION ONline?
COmMISSION Online from SU Scotland is an online training event that runs from Friday 18th June, 4:00pm – Monday 21st June (avoiding any Scotland football matches in case you were wondering!) You will virtually be with others from across Scotland who want to:
- Keep growing as disciples of Jesus
- Enjoy fun and fellowship
- Worship, pray and explore the Bible
- Apply what the Bible says to our world today
- Develop teamwork and leadership skills
- Think practically about how to share our faith
What is the programme for COmMISSION ONline?
Across the four days there will be nine interactive sessions that will include:
- Exploring the Bible – We will look at the book of 2 Timothy with teaching from our speaker Scott Hamilton and in small group discussion
- Training – Training sessions will happen on some of the key skills we might use when we are working with children and young people including sharing our story, leading prayer and worship and, leading games and quizzes
- Small Group Work – In small groups with helpful team members you will plan together to put into practice the skills there has been training on, sharing that with the rest of the event
- Review – After your group has led parts of the programme there will be time together to review how things went
