This project lays out a comprehensive mission strategy for a local church with an emphasis on the student ministry's part in that strategy. Chapter 1 gives the context of the local church that was engaged in the project, along with the missional rationale for the project and the methodology used to complete the project. Chapter 2 traces the history of the mission of God through six scriptural texts beginning in Genesis and ending in Revelation. Chapter 3 connects the local church, and particularly the student ministry to current mission trends and opportunities worldwide. Chapter 4 details how the plan was implemented in the church. Chapter 5 details strengths and weaknesses of the project, recommendations for further usefulness, and personal and theological reflections on the project.||en_US
