Faithful Winesses:
United Methodist Theology of Mission

Faithful Witness: United Methodist Theology of MissionFaithful Witnesses, the first resource book of The Academy of Mission Renewal, a mission education program of the General Board of Global Ministries, offers a United Methodist perspective on Christian Mission. The text connects the United Methodist Theological Task from the Book of Discipline with the current mission program goals of the denomination's mission agency.

This book is intended for small group study, but may also be of interest to individuals seeking a deeper understanding of what it means to be part of God's Mission in the world. Persons interested in exploring the theology of mission are invited to read, and/or study the book in a group setting through a local church, district, or annual conference.

While it is an academically oriented piece, it does not require any specific theological background for understanding. By engaging in the study process, church groups and individuals are encouraged to define and articulate their own mission theology as faithful witnesses of the Gospel.

Included with the book are study guides for several settings -- 1 day event, weekend retreat, or even a six session course.
