By encouraging the congregation to be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit in both usual and unusual ways, the mission group concept recognizes the Spirit’s leading through any church member. If an Oakhurst member senses a call from God to be on mission in a particular area and finds that no existing mission group or regular church committee exists through which this call can be explored, that person may sound a call for the formation of a new mission group. When the mission group is called, three important questions are asked:
- Is it Good News?
- Is the call almost impossible to accomplish?
- Is there a good chance you will fail?
