Mission & Discipleship Commission

Mandate

The purpose of the Mission and Discipleship Commission is to provide information, education and opportunities for communities of faith and their members to deepen faith and strengthen service and witness.

The Mission and Discipleship Commission may create different resource pools.

The Commission provides both training and development opportunities as well as offering informed and timely responses to enable communities of faith to respond to emerging social and political situations.

The Commission encourages and equips communities of faith to enable their members to discern God’s call to different ministries and ways of service.

See The Manual, 2019 Section C.2 references for responsibilities delegated to the Mission and Discipleship Commission (M&D). The Commission is accountable to the Executive through:

  • A representative of the Commission who also serves as a member of the Executive (may be the Chair but not necessarily so); and
  • The timely provision of minutes of its meetings according to the format established by the Regional Council Executive.

For more information, see the Governance Handbook, 2019.
