About this Item


Innovative and engaging, Small Group Life: Mission offers the casual, comfortable feel of a small group dynamic while providing sound Biblical teaching rooted in Scripture. Designed to be provocative and conversational, a sense of community is cultivated where hearts come alive and relationships grow!

About (Episode 2) Mission:
This is the second Episode in the Small Group Life series. Being “on mission” no longer JUST means occasional trips or life-long commitments to missions work. Today, “missional” is understood in a much broader sense and now includes a lifestyle, a heart for people, and a mind-set in the image of Jesus and His charges to take care of the poor, disenfranchised, and less fortunate everywhere. “Missional” is a way of life. The process of becoming missional begins with surrender and ends in life stewardship. Its trail winds through our heart, comfort zones, and the dead areas of our existence, culminating in the vision God has given us for our lives.

Mission's 6 thematic topics are:

  • 1. Surrender
  • 2. Intention
  • 3. On Mission
  • 4. Discomfort
  • 5. Stewardship
  • 6. Evangelism

How the PDF Version works:
With your purchase, you’ll receive a digital version of the Study Guide in PDF and RTF files. Just download, customize as you like, and print. The $30 fee also gives you a license to print unlimited copies of the study for your group. There is one PDF/RTF file for each scene for a total of 12 individual files.
