The next several prayer updates will be focused on the different levels of the mobilization hub. We would like highlight examples of each level and what God is doing through our African Church Partners. Level one is ‘Awareness Raising’ of missions within African Churches.
Many of you may be familiar with the Perspectives course but not so much with the Kairos course. The vision of Kairos is to see the whole Church mobilized for cross-cultural mission to the world’s least-reached peoples. This is a missions training program and tool that has been used throughout Kenya and beyond. The hope is to encourage the emergence of indigenous mission movements that will result in strategic and effective outreach to least-reached peoples. It has helped to mobilize students, professionals, and local churches in hopes to catalyze a missions movement. The desired outcomes are that the saved get discipled to spiritual maturity and fruitfulness in the fulfilment of the Great Commission, and the unreached are reached with the gospel of Christ.
The Kairos Course is a nine-session, interactive course on world Christian mission, designed to educate, inspire and challenge Christians to active and meaningful participation. It is ideally suited to be conducted in local churches, organizations or with special interest groups such as Christian business people. This program utilizes a variety of adult learning styles including group discussions, short lecture introduction, devotions, video teaching and student participation in specially designed activities.
Kairos looks at the four main areas of mission concern which are the Biblical, Historical, Strategic and Cultural dimensions of mission. There are many different formats and schedules in which this course is offered.
- Pray for open doors among churches for the Kairos course.
- Pray for the growth and expansion of the ministry of mobilization in East Africa.
- Pray that God will raise up Kingdom workers and awaken a missions movement in Kenya!
