A Missionary People

Being a missionary people is an intrinsic value of New Beginnings Discipleship.

Our method is to model a lifestyle of love that blesses and influences the community where God has placed us for the Kingdom of God. This is done through the release of God's love by friendship, serving and many other different ways and means.

From time to time God might lead us to take a more strategic and planned course of action.

Local Outreach

Our primary form of outreach has to be our lifestyle and the friendships we cultivate. I (Sarah) would encourage all those using New Beginnings Discipleship materials to prayerfully consider some deliberate form of outreach at some point.

What is done is entirely up to the group to discern and follow God’s leading; this could be as diverse and low-key as randomly giving out red roses or chocolate lolly pops in the shopping centre along with an encouraging smile and “Jesus loves you” right through to a full-scale four-day or week-long family fun event with a visiting mission team; this might involve litter picking, cleaning and decorating community spaces, creating a children's playground or community garden, Christian input into local schools, door-to-door work and gospel meetings.

Prayer Teams

Occasionally Father God leads us to travel beyond our immediate local area in order to partner with what He is doing elsewhere by being part of a visiting prayer team. These ‘missions’ are usually entirely focused on prayer: prayer walking, praying blessing, spiritual mapping and strategic prayer assignments. These prayer missions may be the preparation that precede some strategic outreach by a local group or groups.

Mission Teams

Places where considerable prayer has already been invested can become centres for the release of God’s love through practical mission.

Overseas Teams

It was whilst teaching pastors in rural Uganda in 2010 that the Lord showed me (Sarah) the great need for what we called at the time an itinerant Bible college which has become New Beginnings Discipleship. Most pastors in isolated scattered rural communities in Uganda do not have the financial or practical means to get to Kampala to be taught and trained in very basic skills of biblical interpretation, homiletics and sound doctrine; most do not even own a Bible of their own. However the greatest need was for these pastors to be discipled themselves: to be challenged on matters of integrity, honesty and biblical morality.  At that time we formed a significant partnership with Enos & Florence Nabudere of Eden Life Ministries, Uganda. They are committed to using New Beginnings Discipleship materials to disciple, train and equip these pastors.
