Recognising that missions organisations need to re-engage the church, SIM Canada is embarking on a long-term strategy to boost missionary numbers through several objectives.
- For churches who currently have relationships with SIM missionaries:
- SIM Canada will implement a ‘Stronger Together Plan’ whereby churches are invited to participate in the processing, sending, monitoring, mentoring and supporting ‘their’ missionary(ies).
- For churches who financially support SIM Canada’s activities but who do not have any missionaries from their congregation, we desire to engage these churches to embrace a new paradigm of missions and their role in it. This often begins by increased engagement in a project and over time active involvement in ministries.
That the team of six will identify their churches and begin building meaningful relationships with them.
That churches will be receptive to the engagement strategies employed by the church engagement team.
