Opportunities for mission

The MSJ explores, develops and promotes opportunities for personal involvement in mission response to needs and issues. Often these opportunities are in cooperation and collaboration with groups and individuals of other denominations and faith groups. We work across Missouri and beyond it's borders to keep abreast of emerging needs and respond to secular and faith-based issues.
