–          We will continue to support and seek to encourage other in our church family to consider career missions.

–          We will maintain and further develop an effective strategy for promoting missions by hosting an annual mission conference, conducting short-term mission trips, and having a mission emphasis month each year.

We will make our fellowship aware that every Christian is a missionary.
