Partners In Mission (missionary appointments)

Administrative / Biographical History

The sharing of people is fundamental to the work of the Council for World Mission, with individuals offering themselves to serve on the mission field, locally and abroad; and the support of member churches, willing to send and receive them. 2013 saw the change in name from 'Missionary' to 'Partner in Mission', as more accurately reflecting the equal partnership between the sending and receiving churches. Mission partners are involved in a variety of activities such as theological education, pastoral ministry, medical and health care, activities involved with the counselling and care of HIV/AIDS victims, project administration and community work. Appointments can be short-term or of longer duration.
