Mission First! addresses the need to find a new shared focus in mission and seeks to help Disciples identify the next mission priorities God has for us as we move toward the year 2020 and beyond.
We are still looking for volunteers to work with the Mission First Initiative. If you are interested in serving as a host church, please contact the Regional Office.
