World Mission Sunday
World Mission Sunday is a time for churches around the world to reflect on the call to global missions through social action and evangelism. Five Talents can help your church prepare for a World Mission Sunday. We are happy to provide speakers, testimonies, and inspirational videos as well as opportunities to serve the world's most vulnerable poor in Jesus name. For more information about hosting a World Mission Sunday at your church, click here.
Vision Trips provide an opportunity to cross-geographic and cultural barriers, learn from other cultures and communities, build relationships with ministry partners, grow in one’s faith and experience of God’s work around the world. Five Talents Vision Trips are designed to help participants understand and experience the Five Talents model.
Witness first hand the power of partnership with local churches, the impact of community savings, and the development of small businesses by empowered entrepreneurs. If you'd like to learn more about how you or your church can participate in a vision trip with Five Talents, let us know and we'll be happy to share more.
Sunday School Curriculum
The Five Talents Sunday School Curriculum provides a framework for children to learn about poverty and God's concern for the poor. Through interactive lessons, children learn to identify resources, manage finances, and develop a small business to share during a Market Day.
"I have to say I've never seen a program create as much excitement with the kids themselves as this one. I only wish I had experienced something similar during my time in Sunday School when I was young. And, our congregation was so supportive of all the children's efforts. It was memorable for them too!" - Reverend Barbara Peters
