Business as Mission Life Group Notes

MCA Church LOVED the ministry of Gea Gort and her insights into Business as Mission.

Following are the Life Group Notes for this week (October 7-14, 2018).


Listen – My Story

  • What is your favorite work you have done? Why?
  • What is your dream job or place of service? Why?

Learn – Digging Deeper

Our guest, Gea Gort, quoted Ephesians 3:20, 21 with meaningful work and service in mind.

  • How do you bring God’s ability to do “immeasurably more” into your life of work and service?
  • A wage is not what makes something work or service. Everyone, employed, unemployed, retired or volunteer can walk in Him who is “Able to do immeasurably more.”
  • What ideas or scriptures help you experience the immeasurably more of God?

We were also invited into mediation upon Deuteronomy 8:18. Here we learn it is God who gives the ability to produce wealth.

  • How do you feel when you think of producing wealth? Humble?  Proud? Selfish? Pleasing to God?
  • Are you maximizing the ability God has given to you to produce wealth?
  • Is the wealth you are producing useful to our King and His kingdom?
  • Is the wealth you are producing mostly used for self or for others?
  • How might you become more effective with God’s gift of ability to produce wealth.
  • Is your highest priority in your work and service the mission of God in our world of today?

Life – Taking it Home

What action step will you take this week to connect with God’s immeasurably more and ability to produce wealth?

Lift – Prayer

  • Pray for those in your Life Group who identify an area of their life that is longing for God’s “Immeasurably more.”
  • Pray over each member’s work and service whether paid or unpaid.
  • Pray for and plan to attend the “Bridging the Gap” dynamic leadership seminar, Friday evening 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM and Saturday from 9 AM – 1 PM (Lunch is provided).
