Relation to your Home Church

from Bridges to Your Church (p. 62 of the book Stepping Out), summarized by JR

One: Communicate – pray, ask for advice and listen to it

Two: Learn the church’s channels – get to know the sending church inside and out

Three: Submit – live under authority

Four: Recruit people to pray

Five: Involve people financially

Six: Ask for the church for a commissioning – get commissioned by the church leadership

Seven: Report back – a lack of response discourages a church from sponsoring other short-term involvement
