Led by Rick Matson, District Director of Lay Servant Ministries
and Jeff Baker, Director of Missions, Service and Justice, Missouri Conference.Mission is offering Christ to others through concrete actions. (Paul Chilcote, p 102 on the Wesleyan genius of holding together evangelism and mission.)

The structure of the course flows from the ministry of Jesus and includes those with existing infrastructure that may be quickly implemented to those needing some effort to those where congregations will require work to put ministry structure in place. In all cases, the ministries presented serve the least, the lost and the poor in the name of Christ, providing them sustenance and dignity.
