PODs are the primary tool for global disciple making.
- They are informational meetings that help people discover their role in helping bring the gospel to those who live overseas and are unreached by the Good News.
- The goal of global missions is to become SOGY (Support Others, or Go Yourself). Support Others by prayer and/or financial parnterships, or Go Youreslf by personally exploring overseas opportunites to bring the gospel to unreached peoples.
- They are suitable for individual or group use.
- They are free, interactive, and powerful.
- There are six PODs comprised of five meetings each. You don't have to go through them all; do as many as you choose.
- The first POD is called The Nations, and is a gateway POD. Do it first! The rest can be done in any order. They correspond to the five major groups of unreached peoples. An easy way to remember them is the word THUMB: Tribal, Hindu, Unreligious, Muslim, Buddhist.
