Mission Interact 2013 is coming up fast! We are excited that the Spirit is moving you towards volunteering with Mission Interact. Many of the positions listed below are not exclusionary of the others. A bus driver can also be a serve track leader and worship assistant and zombie (sleep over watchdog :). The students will benefit from consistent leadership and mentors throughout, so pray about dedicating a few vacation days to our Oviedo students. This is a great opportunity for college students, parents, even grandparents to be involved with Christ moving amongst these students. A good many folks actually schedule their vacation during MI so they can participate 100%! Also, be aware that all volunteers will need to have a current background screening performed. If you are already involved in the Student Ministries at your church then you most likely are the perfect candidate for Mission Interact?
Please see the following needs so that you can be used where you are gifted. As you complete your registration, you can make selections of times available and areas to volunteer. ... that they may be One!
REGISTRATION: We are looking at over 250 students and all the record keeping and checking in and out that they will require. Help is needed Sunday at 3pm and then sporadically throughout MI. When would you be available?
WORSHIP: What a lot of us are looking forward to the most. Worship each night at a different church. Audio\visual, organization, flow, and leadership. Every morning and every night. What's your interest?
FOOD: Lots of mouths to feed. Need morning and evening help. Sunday evening to Saturday morning. When are you available?
OVERNIGHTCOUNSELORS (affectionately dubbed 'zombies' that govern Evening Flow & Fun): Each night we'll return to Base Camp with 150+ wound up students for games, wind down, and crash time. We need shepherds to get them corralled to the showers, pointed to dinner, and packaged out to the evening worship. After worship, we'll have some recreation and hang time. Sunday through Friday nights. You feel fun but authoritative? When are you available? OVERNIGHT - Boys and girls will be separate and we need steady adult influence to make sure they catch their zzzzzz's and the doors stay closed. Need help from 7pm-7am, or variations thereof. When are you available?
SERVE TRACKS: The meat of the mission where we need adult leaders for up to 30 groups of students. Hand to Hand (food bank, care packages, etc); Shoulder to Shoulder (paint, yard, construction, sport camp); Heart to Heart (loving them at orphanages, assisted living, vbs); Spirit to Spirit (prayer warriors on the road); Soul to Soul (share how much Jesus loves 'em). Need help Sunday night through Friday. Any or all days. Skills and talents a plus to help the kids have more impact. When are you available and what's your pleasure?
As you complete your registration, you'll be asked to indicate where you might like to help serve. We are looking forward to working side by side for the faith of the Gospel!
BUS DRIVERS: To help move the students from FBCOviedo to the serve tracks and back and forth to worship each evening. If you have a class B license with 'passenger' endorsement, we could use your help. We need help every morning and evening; or maybe all of the above?
PRAYER \ AMBASSADORS: Gettin' the WORD out and gettin' on our knees asking God to use us in a HUGE way. Need it now! And need some ambassadors to take the mission to their work, their church, Sunday school classes, schools, et al. Prayer team to walk and talk to God before we ever even hit the streets. Ready to gear up as an official Prayer Warrior? In fact, you can let us know you are praying by going to our prayer blog right now
When & Where
Mission Interact, Inc.
Jesus prayed ".... that they may be one..." and so Mission Interact is partnered churches sharing Christ's vision ... to someday soon see all followers of Christ, ‘standing fast in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel.’
Mission Interact 6 has begun! …… huh? “Didn’t MI6 just happen in July?” Hey now, our hands and feet for Christ gotta keep on moving! That awesome week during July was just training for the mission that we are all on throughout the school year. Remember, we’ve got three more mini-MI Interactions already scheduled for you!
But what a week of No Fear we had together! During the last week of July, you all painted four homes, loving on the owners as you did; helped over 30 elderly in Palm Valley with yard work; and more help for 15 elderly clients of Seminole County Meals on Wheels; spent time with some very lonely people in assisted living; helped Harvest Time International prepare for shipments of assistance; made a huge impact through work at Clean the World; hosted a Sport Adventure camp for over 140 elementary students; and through your Gospel feet saw over 47 surrender their will and self to Christ as their savior! Some training week I’d say!
So what’s ahead? Interactions! Each of these events will be an opportunity to share a meal, serve, and worship together, exercising our God-given power, love, and minds. Set your calendar and look for forthcoming invites to RSVP and pass on to your friends.

Remember Psalm 55:22 as you go….
Cast your cares on the Lord
and he will sustain you;
he will never let
the righteous be shaken.
