The experimental question

What can be done to encourage the huge pool of people who feel called, wired, and/or gifted by God for cross-cultural mission involvement but cannot find their niche because they want to do more than an occasional mission trip but less than full-time missionary service? 


The experimental activity

Form small, temporary support groups in which these people can share their stories, pray together, and move toward Level 6 mission involvement.  The pilot group is an inter-congregational group in Morton, Illinois, that has typically had 6-8 people involved in monthly meetings off and on over the last two years.
