INCREASING PARTICIPATION IN WORLD MISSIONS AT

FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF POUND, WISCONSIN

This project was designed to increase the participation of the members of First

Baptist Church of Pound, Wisconsin, in world missions. The process involved assessing

and increasing their knowledge of the Bible’s teaching on missions. It also included

increasing their knowledge of the missionaries that the church supports. The project

culminated in a missions mobilization plan to get the whole church more involved in

world missions.

Chapter 1 introduces the ministry context of First Baptist Church, along with

the rationale, purpose, goals, research methodologies, definitions, and delimitations of

the project. Chapter 2 provides the biblical and theological basis for the project through

the exegesis of five passages of Scripture (Matt 10; Matt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Acts 13-14;

and Phil 4:10-20). Chapter 3 presents three case studies of ministries that are

successfully involving their membership in world missions. Chapter 4 describes the

project itself, including the lesson plans and the sermon series. Chapter 5 concludes with

an overall evaluation of the project and suggestions for improvement and further

development.
