In our continuing tradition, Mission Nexus is working to advance the effectiveness of the Great Commission community in North America. In so doing, we have commissioned a second survey of mission agency CEO’s and church mission leaders. Our goal was to provide peer information and perspective to enable leaders to more knowledgeably, and carefully fulfill our charge of helping our churches, organizations and workers be as fruitful in ministry to fulfill the Great Commisison.
The inaugural survey was fielded in early 2013 among chief executives form more than 150 mission organizations. The 2016 survey represents 160 chief executives and 212 church mission leaders. This presentation will overview the study and seek to show progress over the past three years as we compare the data, and then lay a framework for moving this great mission enterprise forward by anticipating challenges and oppositions ahead of us.
