As you live each day on mission, Bellevue offers resources to equip you for the task. During Missions Week, we will offer a training opportunity where you can learn how to have Gospel conversations, reach your neighbors, and love Memphis in tangible ways. Breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m., and training will begin at 9:00 a.m. This event is free, and breakfast and lunch are provided. Register today!

Here are the three breakout sessions we will host on Saturday:

Welcoming the Sojourner

Millions of people have been forced to flee the only country they have ever known and take their families on dangerous treks to find safety. These people usually end up in an unfamiliar place, surrounded by those who speak a different language from them—and very few people take action to help them. We are called to welcome these sojourners with open arms and point them to where they can find true hope. Come learn how to love those who are experiencing these hardships and seeking a new place to belong.

Loving Your Neighbor

Sometimes it feels less intimidating to cross the ocean to present the Gospel than to simply share it across the street. In this breakout you’ll gain tools to help you live on mission in your community through biblical hospitality and learn how to build relationships with your neighbors that can lead to Gospel transformation.

Serving the Vulnerable

Trauma is defined as a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. In our broken world, those types of experiences happen far too often. Many times we want to be present for those who have been affected by trauma, but we don’t know how to. Attend this breakout to learn how to minister to vulnerable people in ways that honor Christ and dignify the individual.
