BWM Mission Engagement Goals and Practices
The Board of World Mission wishes to journey together with congregations and members of the Moravian Church in North America as we work to answer God’s call to take part in missions. In order to best engage congregations as we respond together to the call to mission the BWM works to:
The BWM works with individuals, congregations and partner provinces to discern passions and gifts and identify local and global calls to mission.
The BWM informs and educates individuals on the present and historical context of Moravian Missions.
The BWM invites individuals and congregations to journey in mission together, equipping them to take part in a wide range of opportunities.
The BWM invests in people locally and globally to engage in mission, develop leaders and grow relationships to build capacity to share the Gospel Message.
We use these goals together as a process in addressing all of our issues. So in everything that we do we inquire, inform, invite and invest (and inspire!). Whether it’s with global or local partners, with Antioch or new work, this is how WE do our work. And this HOW of the INS reflects our values of mutuality, accountability and self-reliance and having all centered in Christ. And it is the way that we move to ward our goals of promoting leadership development, economic strengthening and mission outreach.
