What is Mission First?

Mission First! seeks to help Disciples identify the next mission priorities God has for us as we move toward the year  2020 and beyond.

Mission First! addresses the need to find a new shared focus in mission. We are not setting aside pro-reconciliation/anti-racism, new and transforming churches or leadership development.

Gathering Your Input

Disciples will give their input on what’s important in their communities through Mission Gatherings. At the heart of Mission First! are Mission Gatherings in 2016 where all Disciples will be invited to share their congregation’s particular passion within God’s larger mission.
