Discover is a discussion-based course that aims to help people explore the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of mission from a biblical perspective. It’s designed for home group settings or for a special study series – it’s often used during Lent or Advent. It’s an ideal resource for churches seeking fresh approaches to teaching and discipleship.
The Discover programme is made up of seven sessions, with each session focusing on a particular part of the biblical story of mission. The sessions dip into the stories of Adam, Eve, Abraham, Moses and Isaiah before spending time focusing on the life, ministry and death of Jesus.The resource pack comprises specially produced material that is contemporary, innovative and challenging.
The Resource Pack
The different elements of the Discover resource pack are designed to help people think about and talk about mission.
The Introduction Booklet – overview of pack; suggestions and guidance
The Session Outlines – Suggested questions and activities for each session
The DVD – Seven short, thought-provoking films that introduce the material in each session.
The Book – Seven chapters providing additional material for each session.
Discover is CMSI’s response to the many churches and individuals throughout Ireland who have expressed a desire for more and better mission education.
Discover is not intended as a fundraising enterprise, nor does it ‘champion’ (or even mention) CMSI. It is offered as a gift to the Church in Ireland – a resource for all who want to explore mission issues from a biblical perspective.
10th Anniversary Special Offer
Discover was launched in 2010. Lots of churches and small groups have used the resource since then, and the feedback has been hugely positive. Ten years on, the material is just as relevant and engaging - and the videos still look fantastic! We'd love to see more churches running a Discover course as we celebrate its 10th Anniversary!
Throughout 2020, we're waiving the usual costs* for the Discover pack. If you plan to run the course, you can have the film pack (and as many books as you like) for free, or you can make a donation towards the material and/or postage costs.
(* As a guideline, the usual costs are £20/€25 for the full resource pack and £2/€2.50 for each additional book)
