16missionstatementA mission statement adopted by the Synod Council (4/16/16) guides our synodical ministry.

The mission of our synod is to work with the Holy Spirit to make disciples for our Lord Jesus Christ. To do this we will nurture new and renewing centers for the proclamation of the gospel, where communities of Jesus’ disciples gather who share the love of Jesus through their speech and actions.

As we pursue this mission, we will: • raise up a diverse group of leaders who are equipped to equip others and who care for our communities; • address issues of race, poverty, injustice and personal brokenness both locally and through our global companions in ways that shape our common life and model courage and hope for our world; and • grow our financial resources and connect them with our ministries in ways that are transparent, responsible and sustainable.
