The Mission Connection Leadership Team Team of the Western NC Conference of The United Methodist Church will be hosting a Mission Connection Team Meeting on Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 10 am to 2 pm at Williamson's Chapel UMC in Mooresville. Lunch will be provided.
Mission Connection Teams are being formed for collaboration and resource sharing. The missional call in the hearts and churches of the Western North Carolina Conference is strong. Many individuals and churches serve in a myriad of ways around the world.
Mission Connection Teams will gather as many individuals and church teams as possible to share what has been learned while being involved in a country or state. Through collaboration, we can increase impact and discerning of how God would have us make a transformational impact to move our mission involvement with ministries and churches to a place of sustainable partnership.
Who should attend? Domestic and international mission trip leaders and members, missional pastors and directors, local church mission and outreach leaders and committee members. Someone should represent your church within each individual country/state mission connection groups.
