Joe Dillon, missional church strategist for the International Mission Board, spoke on the importance of team leaders spending time in prayer. Churches that are most effective in mobilizing for missions are those that recognize spiritual warfare and are committed to praying for God to have the victory. He said prayer should be the central focus in a church; not just something done before the offering.
"When it comes to engaging lostness, prayer needs to be everything," he said.
Dillon said that for all the planning, something usually fails to go according to plan during the mission trip. When that happens, prayer is crucial. "Give your people opportunity to see God work out stressful situations that you can't," he said.
American traditions won't work Dillon also spoke on team leaders understanding the context in which they are going to serve. "We naturally tend to reproduce the patterns we are most comfortable with. People do what they have always done, even if it hasn't worked," he said.
Team leaders must shift their perspective and focus not on changing the message they share with those who are lost, but the way in which they present it. One example Dillon shared is how mission teams often go overseas and build a building for a church planter. While well intended, in some cultures that does more harm than good, as it creates a dependency on a physical structure instead of on God.
The "attractional model" of church that may work well in a predominantly Christian culture is failing us, Dillon said. NC Baptists to embrace unengaged people groups [cached]
Joe Dillon, IMB missional church strategist, shared during a recent "Impact Your World: Team Leader Training" event in High Point about the importance of creating self-sustaining ministry and disciple-making instead of a dependency on outside funding, volunteers or even physical structures such as church buildings. People groups cannot depend long-term on a church in America to sustain any type of church planting movement. That type of movement must be indigenous to the people group.
"Our job is to empower these people to be a disciple-making congregation. One-on-one discipleship is how we'll saturate the culture with the Gospel," Dillon said.
Dillon also pointed out that 96 percent of mission teams from the United States travel to only two percent of lostness in the world.
