In addition to welcoming Royal Ambassadors and Challengers to the WMU family, WMU has also started a new organization for young adult women called “myMISSION.” Resources for myMISSIOn are web-driven and tailored to the young adult audience. While the ages for young women may vary from church to church, the ages of 18-34 are used as a point of reference for understanding and equipping this audience. Through myMISSION, young women engage in Bible study, the building of community, and mission projects in their area.
Anyone can be a part myMISSION. It’s for the college student, the young professional, the young mom, and the girl next door. myMISSION is an avenue through which young women can explore their faith together and learn to live it out wherever they area. myMISSION encourages young women to learn about their world and missions. Most importantly, myMISSION calls young women to live fully in their circumstances, developing a missions lifestyle that engages the people around them.
myMISSIONfulfilled.com is the primary resource for myMISSION involvement. Because there are so many different stages of life within the 18-34 year old age range, the web site offers blogs and resources for participants with different interests and life experiences. Materials for leaders, moms, young professionals, college students, and working young adults are all included. The site is interactive and participants are encouraged to post pictures and share ideas.
Here are some ways to be involved in myMISSION:
Small groups can be created around common interests, lifestyles or needs. These groups come together to share and learn together, as well as serve in the community. myMISSION group members may come from the same or different churches. They can also form on college campuses. Group members determine when, where and how often their group will meet.
Individual involvement is an option for anyone because all myMISSION materials are offered online. Blogs, articles, and missions features are updated regularly, so a young woman can read and interact with others on her own time schedule. Comments, sharing photos and creative writing, and joining in the “conversation” are all encouraged through the myMISSION web site.
Missions events are a great way for young women to come together to serve. The myMISSION web site offers event ideas for young women as well as mixed age groups.
Ministry projects offer hands-on participation opportunities for young women to influence their world for Christ. myMISSION studies encourage young women to participate in monthly missions projects. Through hands-on missions, young women not only grow in their faith, they also grow their impact for Christ in the community around them.
