Mission Mistakes: See Differently - Serve Differently
As our understanding of the church’s role in mission continues to develop, we invite youth and leaders to join us in a conversation on past mission mistakes and how we can do better in the future. This workshop will consider justice, environmental impacts, local leadership, and more as a lens when planning future mission engagement. All are invited to discuss intentional, intersectional missions through an interactive planning exercise, which can be used to discern future mission opportunities. Join us with your ideas, your laments, and your hopes for the future of United Methodist missions.
Facilitated by UM Global Ministries Environmental Sustainability and the Global Mission Fellows Program
Workshop leader: Jonathan Brake, Hannah Hanson, Amanda Kirkscey - Global Ministries Environmental Sustainability and the Global Mission Fellows Program
How will it help you be BOLD? Participants and facilitators will learn from each other as we examine what has hindered God's true mission with negative implications that have come from good intentions. By reflecting on how to build mission projects from a relational/intersectional approach we will benefit from the great cloud of witnesses and grow in our perseverance to bring God's kingdom here on earth. We will give each other practical ways to live differently and allow our authentically selves and the authenticity of those we seek to serve to shine through.
