Mission One Eleven brings people together to be trained to go to the most remote places in the world. They train together as a group, study God’s word, learn story telling, and prepare physically and mentally for extreme and harsh conditions. They go through a “boot camp” for 6 weeks, take classes in “What is the Assignment”, prayer and meditation. They learn how to work together as a team through team building exercises such as hiking and training in mountainous and dense forests regions to adjust to harsh terrains overseas. They spend weekends serving the community, preaching, and sharing the Gospel through story telling, but most of all, they learn how to trust each other and trust God.
Here’s how it works: once a group or tribe has been located or identified as unreached or unengaged, a Mission One Eleven team is sent in. They then travel to that group, make and build a relationship with them, and camp with or near them. The Gospel is presented to them through storytelling.
The hardest question teams have heard is, ”If you’ve known about this good news, why have you waited for so long to bring it to us?”
The success of the Mission One Eleven is evident in the returning students who want to share their experience and continue to devote their time and energy toward missions.
The best part is, when they return, they are returning to your church to help prepare, energize and recruit others into the Great Commission. Mission One Eleven participants will come back with resources that will excite your congregation; stories of miracles, meeting fascinating people, photos, videos and some may even participate in “The Assignment,” a Reality TV Show! “The Assignment” follows the Missions One Eleven group from their departure, through every step of their journey.
We see their adjustment to the culture, watch them step out in faith to speak to people about Jesus and follow them into the primitive bush in search of unreached tribes. “The Assignment” captures the excitement of the students quest to take the Gospel to the ends of the Earth.
