at olivet


For missions leaders, missions teams, pastors, and anyone with a desire to reach the world for Christ.

Missions College One Day will feature eight on-the-field International Mission Board (IMB) missionaries who are currently serving in East Asia. These IMB field personnel will take you through the process of researching and understanding your missions location, or for more experienced leaders they will help you develop in-depth strategies to take your missions work to the next level. The day will culminate with a Missions Worship Celebration in the Olivet Baptist worship center. 


This is what we’ll be covering …

Master Plan for Missions: This class led by IMB’s Scott Bradford will be a hands-on approach to developing a Master Plan for helping your church to effectively engage a people group or population segment. Please come prepared to talk and interact and discuss practical issues related toward developing an effective Master Plan. (1.5-hour session taught twice.)

Gospel Conversations – Story of Redemption: IMB’s Jason Queen will help you look at how to have (and train others to have) natural gospel conversations with non-Christians. We will look at a simple and easily learnable way to share the gospel with non-Christians. With the Story of Redemption, we will look at how to lead non-Christians in an evangelistic 8-lesson Bible study. The Story of Redemption is also a great discipleship tool for new Christians.

Effectively Engaging Unreached People Groups/Cities and Evaluating Your Process: This workshop led by IMB’s Tony Lee will help you to develop effective strategies in engaging Unreached People Groups/Unreached Cities and evaluating your current ministry engagement plans for adoption, entry, partnership and exit.

Changing Your World and The World Through Prayer: In this workshop, IMB’ will help us learn to be more intentional and focused in our prayer life and lead our churches to do the same. During this time, we will not only learn about prayer, we will actually spend time praying together. Donn Broeker being a missionary to Japan, will share specific ways you can be praying for the work among the second largest unreached people group in the world.

East Asia Overview: This is a broad-spectrum overview of East Asia led by IMB’s Jeff Waligora. He will address the following questions: What is going on in the countries that make up East Asia? Where are the Unreached Unengaged People Groups and Unreached People Groups located? How does this affect you and your church?

Compass – The goal of the Compass Church Planting Training Session Series focuses on God’s word and uses an 8-phase framework for helping to diagnose potential pitfalls in our own church progress, church planting work, and cross-cultural missions efforts. The Compass training and tool is designed to assist Church Planter workers in diagnosing the current phase of a church, mission, and ministry. *Please note THIS YEAR we will not be teaching this in 3 parts. It will be a 1.5-hour session taught twice with hands on activities. Taught by: Steve Ellis

Involving Students in Missions: This workshop led by IMB’s Gerald Lee will help you learn effective ways to utilize students in your mission strategies and discuss creative ways to do so.
