Committee on Mission Congregations

Committee on Mission Congregations

Convocation Mission Festival 2020
April 30 - May 3, 2020 in Augsburg, Germany
Registration here

(Mission congregations in lower case; Parishes in upper case)

The Committee on Mission Congregation is composed of lay and clergy members who aid in the nurturing and formation of mission congregations. 

Mindful of the Five Marks of Mission, and guided by its charter, the committee focuses on

  • encouraging and supporting the convocation's existing mission congregations, and 
  • identifying and responding to the needs for new mission congregations.

The committee is developing a strategy to frame the intentional establishment of new mission congregations within the Convocation. It also provides ongoing counsel and support to the current mission congregations, encouraging them towards autonomy and, if appropriate, parish status.
