In Mission Together and Cross and People's FacesA Church Partnership Program

In Mission Together is a partnership program of the General Board of Global Ministries. This program is designed to assist churches to engage in shared mission and ministry with a developing congregation or in the development of a relationship that could lead to a new congregation. It encourages and affirms the role of local congregations, districts, and annual conferences to be in mission in a global setting.

General Board of Global Ministries intends to provide a trained third party facilitator to assist congregations in developing these partnerships. Initial In Mission Together efforts have been in conjunction with approved projects of The Advance in the Eastern European countries of Bulgaria, Czech and Slovak Republics, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Poland and Serbia, plus the Southeast Asian countries of Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. Other geographical areas may be added in the future.
