Four Ways to Get Inspired

Mission Tip #3

By Emma Gallagher

The most important thing you can do as a supporter of missions is to continue to be inspired. Here are a few easy ideas on how to boost your inspiration over the next few months.

  1. Go to a Missions Festival.
    These are free/koha events that our Church Support Officer, Rev Mike Hawke, is organising with your local Diocesan Missions Group. Christchurch and Waikato & Taranaki Festivals were earlier this year and were thought provoking and inspiring. If you missed one, see if you can make it to one of these upcoming ones:
    • Waiapu - 17th August 2013
    • Wellington - 28th September 2013
    • Nelson - 21st to 27th October 2013
    • Auckland - 16th November 2013
    • Dunedin - TBC
  2. Download a copy of Inspire: a guide to mission focussed motivating.
    Originally designed for Mission Motivators, this resource is available to all who would like some new ideas and checklists to make sure you're doing the best job you can in motivating people for mission. Even if you're not a Mission Motivator, but you're keen to inspire others, download a copy!
  3. Like us on Facebook.
    We post little stories and prayer requests about missions that never reach our website or publications onto our Anglican Missions Facebook page.
  4. Get a "Rev Up" by our Church Support Officer.
    Rev Mike is available to visit your parish - but he books up fast! Get in contact to see if he's free to come and "Rev Up" your Church for missions!

Remember that once you're inspired - make sure to do something to pass on your inspiration to others. This could be anything from organising an event, to simply discussing Missions with a friend, or drop us a note to tell us what you have been doing - perhaps your idea could inspire someone else around the country.

"Your life is your message to the world, make sure it's inspiring!"
