Mapping Church Missions 101: Introducing a Tool for Ministry Strategy

Friday, 3:30 – 4:45 PM

Presented by: Sharon Hoover

This workshop introduces seven key topics needed to identify a church’s unique missional engagement. The terrain for missions is often bewildering. Should we prioritize evangelism or works of service? Local ministries or overseas missions? What’s more important: giving money or giving time? Crisis relief or building sustainable, long-term ministries? And what about the often debated pros and cons of short-term missions trips? The workshop presents a tool to begin assessing your mission strategy and discerning further ministry and partnership choices. It is recommended for all church leaders and ministry consultants.

Primary Audience: Church leaders and ministry consultants
