Mission committees serve at the heart of the congregation, leading churches as they discern and engage in the active life of faith. While this work is richly life-giving, it also comes with its fair share of challenges. Allocating funds, choosing mission projects, beginning and sustaining partnerships — all of this work takes time, energy and an awareness of the movement of the Spirit. This toolkit provides resources to help equip your mission committee for this important work.
Who’s this toolkit for?
This toolkit is for mission committee members interested in learning more about God’s mission, evaluating their congregation’s mission involvement and discerning a new mission focus.
What about PC(USA)’s invitation to become a Matthew 25 Church? How can this toolkit help?
