The missions mindset does not come easy.
You may need help to understand God's call to missions and share it with others.
This Is Why Student Missions Resource
Tackle the basic questions of why we call it the "Good News," why we evangelize and make disciples, and why we send missionaries to hard places. Here are six group sessions and six weeks of devotions that introduce students to the critical fundamentals of missions. Also is a chapter on the "how-to's" of putting together an international mission trip. Download the PDF for free here.
All these materials, including the daily devotions, are available in the IMB Students MY MISSION app. Available for free download for Android and Apple and Windows.
Abandon Student Missions Resource
What does it mean to be "abandoned" to God and His mission? Here are six group studies, six weeks of devotions, and even six worship experiences around the idea of students abandoning themselves to the mission of God. Download the PDF for free here.

IWC has developed a student version of Creation to Christ on a bandanna (storying cloth) as well as artwork for download to use as you wish. IWC project participants receive the bandanna to help them as needed in sharing the Gospel.
