Report for Middle Governing Body Executives on Mission Challenge ’07
Mission Challenge ’07 was a bold initiative aimed at connecting Presbyterians with their mission personnel serving the church around the world. The primary goal was to build stronger relationships between congregations and mission co-workers. It was also a new model and experiment aimed at addressing our members’ changing giving patterns and upgrading our own capacity to serve those changing needs.
By many standards, Mission Challenge ’07 was an overwhelming success. At the same time, we learned much from this endeavor that continues to inform any future plans in the area of interpretation and funds development.
