Assistant Director of Student Ministries

Organized for Mission

k9328247Organized for Mission

We have divided our churches into eight missional groups of approximately eight churches each. The Superintendent or Congregational Specialist will meet with each mission group once a month. This will replace the monthly clergy gatherings. This will allow the Superintend and Specialist to spend more quality time with the clergy for encouragement and visioning. In addition, key lay members of each congregation will be asked to participate in the visioning, planning and implementation of the mission strategy. We cannot be successful without the laity’s buy-in and participation.

Each missional group will share best practice of each congregation, to learn about one another’s gifts, strengths and successes, to lift up and encourage, and to share resources of time, gifts, and facility.

We will spend time in prayer, discerning what mission God is calling us to fulfill. After much reflection and study of our community, using data and demographics, each group will prioritize the needs and opportunities that arise. We then will develop a strategic plan of action.

These group meetings begin in September of 2015, and meet monthly except December, 2014, and March of 2016, ending in May of 2016.

At least once a year, each mission group will come together in a common mission to impact the community.

Our Greenville District Mission Groups are:

Crescent Mission Group

Downtown Mission Group

Mauldin/Golden Strip Mission Group

Traveler’s Rest Mission Group

Simpsonville/Golden Strip Mission Group

Greer Mission Group

Taylors/Greer Mission Group

25 Corridor Mission Group
