Notable Points:

  • Gen Send:
    • A missions opportunity for college students to go with a church planting team for six weeks and help advance a church plant or existing church.
  • Send cities are areas with the greatest need of churches due to church to population and other factors.
    • The cities are important because culture come out of the city to the surrounding area.
      • Reaching cities also helps reach internationally because international students often come to larger cities.
  • Guiding students to other ministries is important.
    • To reach cities and the world we must view each individual as a missionary who is reaching out to the community God has put them in.
    • Talk to your students about relocating to an area they may feel God calling them to.
    • There are many different Send Cities that students could go to (32 total).
    • Ask them: Where can you make the most impact for the Gospel?
