  • Measuring Success: A New Mission Scorecard by Dr. Lovett H. Weems, Jr. — How can churches focus on outcomes rather than activities and develop metrics that reflect the true impact of mission engagement?

This presentation provides answers to these important questions.

This presentation identifies some of the risks and benefits of mission trips and outlines best practices to make your next mission trip impactful for all involved.
  • Identifying Real Community Needs by Dr. C. Anthony Hunt — To be relevant and impactful in a changing world, churches must continually reassess their mission in light of what’s really happening in their community. This presentation will outline ways to accurately assess community needs.
  • Maximizing the Impact of Your Church’s Donations of Goods by Kim Mitchel — Virtually every church has projects that involve collecting and donating items needed by others, whether its canned goods, school supplies, clothing, or relief supplies. Explore best practices to assure that these ministries meet legitimate needs, honor the recipients, and help contributors grow in missional awareness.
  • Spiritual Growth through Mission Participation by Dr. Ann A. Michel — Our mission endeavors can be instruments God uses to open our eyes to human needs and instill compassion in our hearts.
