Learn about our Unifying Call to Core Ministries.
Our Unifying Call to Core Ministries – a kind of statement of identity – provides a framework and focus for all the ministries of the Conference. Members of the Missouri Mid-South Conference Board of Directors and representatives elected from each Association make up Core Ministry Teams, which oversee, coordinate, and empower working groups (planning committees, task forces, etc.) to engage in specific tasks related to each Core Ministry.
So what does that mean?
We have clarity of purpose and a way to set priorities. We empower ministry directly. We offer more opportunities for involvement, action, and ministry that has significance and impact.
“We are the United Church of Christ in Arkansas, Memphis, and Missouri. United by Christ and led by the Holy Spirit, we support and empower one another in our unifying call to embody God’s love and mercy for all.”
We answer this call through our Core Ministries:
Pursuing Justice and Equity
Visioning the Future
Learn how each Core Ministry Team defines its purpose – and find a place to connect your passion to current ministries or help develop new ones.
