The Worldwide Mission Partnership of our presbytery announces a mission gathering. On the morning of May 7th, our presbytery will conduct this first-of-its kind event. Whether your church is big or small, active in missions or not, this event will be catalytic to the future of missions in our presbytery.
For the first time ever, we’re bringing together mission-minded leaders from every church in Los Ranchos to begin sharing what they are doing in missions. Our vision is that every church will send a small team of 2-5 people to share their church’s story.
But here’s the catch. Even if your church isn’t involved in missions or outreach at all, we hope you will send at least two people who will be willing to facilitate the morning’s discussions. We suspect that these individuals will make great group facilitators as they will be eager to hear from as many churches as possible as they discern God’s call to mission for their own church.
By the end of the morning, this is what we will have hoped to accomplish:
1. We will have met each other and learned about the most exciting mission work being done in our churches.
2. We will have learned where each church feels they are doing well . . . and where they need help.
3. We will have taken the first step toward developing mission partnerships, which is discovering our friendship in Christ and our common call to do God’s work in the world. (Some of us will have also taken the second step of mission partnerships, which is discovering that our desire to make a unique difference in some part of God’s kingdom overlaps with others’.)
So this is what we’re asking. By April 7, please be so kind as to send Bonita Carr the contact information of people in your church who can help make this event a success. To help you do this, we’ve made a simple form for you to complete (see below). Please fill it out and send it back. Someone on our team will then follow up with each of the people you’ve listed, including you, if you happen to be one of them!
Please send the form to Bonita Carr at [email protected] by April 7th.
