Mission Mobilizer: Training More Youth, Reaching More Churches

I know it may be hard to believe for some of you, but I am not superman.  I have limitations.  The down side of this problem is that I can’t be in multiple places at once, which means that I can only reach so many churches.  And since my passion is to equip the church, it can be a very frustrating limitation.  If I committed to every training I could, I would burn out.  I am finally realizing that my kryptonite is over commitment.

Facing this hard reality is why I am so excited about the new YMI Mission Mobilizer position!  What is this position?  It is an individual who works for YMI abroad by contacting churches and building relationships with them and building a volunteer force in that general area.  That way they can connect with the local church and serve them in a personal way which is what YMI is all about.  This position is going to expand the capacity of YMI to train churches and set up responsible mission trips to missionaries to further their ministry.  It also means that we are helping more youth pastors in getting their youth evangelizing in their local communities and cultivating a life style of living the gospel out everyday.  It helps free up the process of training churches and customizing the training to fit their needs from bottle necking at the main office.  It gives us the flexibility to be personal and not a machine that everyone must fit in.

One of the main reasons I am excited about this model for Mission Mobilizer is that it follows the model that Paul gave Timothy about instructing others who will be able to instruct others in 2 Tim. 2:2.  It multiplies ministry and does not confine everything on one individual and their gifting.  It allows for God to use different giftings to grow ministry and to glorify Himself.  This is what makes good leadership.  Jesus trained His disciples and they changed the world.  Our goal is to empower these Mission Mobilizers to be able to impact churches in their regions and missions internationally.
