Mapping Church Missions: A Compass for Ministry Strategy
Description: The terrain of church missions is often bewildering. Should we prioritize evangelism or works of service? Local ministries or overseas missions? What’s more important: giving our money or giving our time? Crisis relief or building sustainable, long-term ministries? And what about the often debated pros and cons of short-term missions trips? Sharon Hoover brings her years of experience in local church missions to bear on these and other thorny questions. This webinar walks through seven key issues to guide individuals and churches toward an effective and sustainable missions strategy. It equips pastors and leaders to lay purposeful groundwork as they map their church’s missional engagement.
