‘MissioLife’ – Small Group Study Information Post

Buzz this

My husband, Fred, and I partner with another couple to lead a Life Group through our church. We are always on the lookout for new material. I was intrigued when I learned about MissioLife, a digital small group resource.

Here is a video that explains this new Small Group resource:

Here is further explanation:

As leaders in the church, its challenging to equip people to be formed spiritually, to have the story of God become a practical reality, and to actively become storytellers. It can also be difficult to find a program that is designed to span across all ages. This summer, Beacon Hill Press released an intentional and formational small group experience entitled MissioLife. MissioLife was created to guide adults, youth and children on a pilgrimage through Scripture—from understanding to participation in the mission of God.

MissioLife is all-digital

MissioLife is being offered as a digital resource. This means you can easily access and download the materials through this website. From everything you need to lead a MissioLife group, to posters and other promotional materials, it’s never been easier to organize and lead a community-wide experience. See how easy it can be by downloading a sample lesson now.

MissioLife is for communities

MissioLife is intended to be experienced together as a community. Unlike individual devotionals designed for only one person or one learning group, MissioLife is intentional about involving everyone in your faith community. Adults, youth, and children can all share in this communal experience together through Breathe (Adult), Image (Youth), and Rhythms (Children). With age-appropriate material for each learning group and lesson materials specifically designed to encourage engagement and participation, MissioLife provides an opportunity for your entire community to better understand and participate in the mission of God.

MissioLife is formational

 MissioLife enables spiritual growth through the spiritual formation model  
 of story, theology, identity and calling, way of life, and behaviors and 
 expressions. It calls us to move beyond simply reading Scripture to
 participation in the mission of God, both communally and individually.
 Through six (6 week) modules, one year of MissioLife provides the 
 opportunity for intentional and comprehensive formation. Communities
 can continue on the journey with the following years of MissioLife

·  Year One – The God of Life: A Story of God’s Redeeming Shalom
·  Year Two – The God Who Would Be King: A Story of God’s Kingdom
·  Year Three – The God of Promise: A Story of God’s People
·  Year Four – The God of New Creation: A Story of God’s Restoration

I was provided a preview copy for review purposes, and was very encouraged by what I saw! I definitely intend to recommend it to our group for future studies – and recommend this solid biblical resource to any group that is looking for an in-depth resource that is geared for all ages. I intend to review it with Fred in the coming weeks, and will periodically post my thoughts. Please stay tuned!

In the meantime, please come back on Monday as I give you more information on how MissioLife is divided into three learning groups.

MissioLife is published by Beacon Hill Press and was provided by the B and B Media Group for review purposes.
