In this, and the link pages, we would like to share the tremendous way a "Spearhead Mission" could affect your area. Their aim - to saturate an area with the gospel of Jesus Christ, giving every person in that area at least one opportunity to hear the message and respond to it, is matched by the practical help and stimulus they give to the churches and Christians of that area. These missions have been successfully used in a variety of situations and in areas as large as 250,000 in population.
Analysis (Click here for more information)
Careful analysis is made of each community as to its make-up, problems and opportunities, and the part the church plays in it. A strategy of continuous evangelism is then developed to reach as many people as possible before, during and after the mission.
Training (Click here for more information)
Training is given to encourage Christians in how to share their faith in a relaxed and natural way. They are encouraged to build lasting friendships so that the mission can help those already befriended to a living faith.
Principles of continuous evangelism are shared with the leadership of the churches so that each church can develop its own strategy of follow-up and continuous outreach to the area.
Stimulus and practical training are given in the vital area of prayer. We have seen many come to faith in Christ through this prayer strategy.
Outreach (Click here for more information)
Outreach to the community is a central part of a Spearhead mission. Team members and specialists reach out into the community eg. schools, community centres, open airs, youth clubs, industry etc as well as maximising the events already taking place in the life of the church through specially arranged events to touch specific target groups of the church.
High Profile Events (Click here for more information)
The focus of the mission are high profile events that are designed for the unchurched. The work in the community, church, and amongst those contacted as a result of the training in sharing your faith, all lead to these events which capture the imagination of the community and provide a wonderful place to bring the people contacted. They present a fast moving program with creative elements leading to the preaching of the Gospel in a relevent and challenging way.
"Advising" and Follow Up (Click here for more information)
Each person making a spiritual response through the mission is handled with respect and in confidence. Training is given to help local people to be able do this with skill and sensitivity.
Follow up is a vital part of mission both of the individuals showing a spiritual response, as well the follow up of the opportunities opened up during the mission. It has been our experience that many new doors of opportunity come as a result of the mission and these must be utilised for the future. Help is given in all these areas.
The Team (Click here for more information)
In order to help the local committee to organise the mission we have a team of Christian leaders who are on hand with advice and help. A team of full-time and lay workers are also available to Spearhead for outreach into the churches and the community, making the impact all the greater.
"The Thrill of Missions" (Click here)
Read about some of the exciting times the Spearhead team have experienced on mission. It has not always been easy, but God has touched lives and changed situations. This is precisely the reason He called Spearhead into existence - to find ways of reaching the unreached with the Gospel as well as those on the fringe of the church.
Send for the 12 minute returnable video showing one specific mission. Through it we saw God touch the lives of people who had been prayed for years. One couple had been in and out of prison on drugs related problems but have now come to a sure faith in Christ. You will see the many and varied ways Spearhead seeks to reach into the community and glimpse something of the high-profile events which seek to present the Good News in a relevant yet challenging way.
