Live and Share is an interactive programme made up of 8 sessions that can be delivered monthly directly by one of the Missional Generation team who will seek to equip young people within their local context for lifelong missional living.
Why Live and Share?
Mission and Culture is an important aspect of discipleship that needs resourcing and we want to help you and your young people engage missionally with the world. We have found that there is a growing concern that young people today do not feel confident in sharing their faith and we believe the need has never been greater to equip and raise up a generation who can live boldly for Christ.
Missional teaching being outworked within youth groups will help young people grow in awareness of how to share their faith and help resource the church to better connect with young people.
What is Live and Share?
Live and Share is an interactive programme made up of 8 sessions that can be delivered directly by one of the Missional Generation team. We offer flexibility in how we facilitate this programme and feel confident that we can tailor the delivery to best suit the local context and the young peoples’ expression of faith that you are working with.
Our desire is to see a generation of young people, raised up as leaders in their own right who have cultivated a rhythm of life that influences their world, through word and deed, for the Kingdom of God.
Live and Share aims to help encourage young people to explore the importance of being formed by God, having a belief and relationship in Jesus and learning to live in communion with the Holy Spirit.
Watch this video to understand the foundational truth we teach.
We teach that we are made in the image of God and that He has deposited his image and likeness into our identity. As a result of this, we believe that God is not in the business of rejecting himself so he cannot reject young people. It is our privilege to communicate 3 foundational truths outlined in the video above to help kick start and re-envision young people for missional living.
• God formed them (Made in his identity)
• Jesus accepted them (Adoption into his family)
• The Holy Spirit appoints them (Sent to have an influence)
There are too many young people that don’t know or believe that they are formed by God, accepted by Jesus and are not aware of the provision and resources the Holy Spirit offers. This means that, when we encourage them to share their faith and invite people to know Jesus, the idea of being “sent” with the Good News becomes something they fear or shy away from.
What we believe Live and Share can offer:
We feel that, if we are able to address the issue of identity in Jesus, adoption through the cross and the image young people have of God, we will see a generation living out the Great Commission and developing missional-shaped lives. Over time this will bring an influence within every arena of life as the Holy Spirit enables them. We believe Live and Share can cultivate the right environment for young people to grow closer to God, become more confident in their understanding of scripture leading to them sharing their faith through the mission endeavours that they will be encouraged to shape and organise.
