Mission Needs People

“Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”
Isaiah 6:8  NRSV

God works with those called to serve in mission. For the work of world mission God needs people who are prepared to employ their skills and their spiritual gifts in another culture under circumstances and conditions which are foreign to them.
The people suited to this task are therefore not only qualified in their chosen field, but are also willing and able to learn from others, to listen to others, to live and work in partnership. What this may entail will look different in every community and in every country.

Mission workers are aware of their commitment to Jesus Christ. At the same time they are responsible both to the receiving church and the sending church. This leads at times to tensions and conflicts of conscience.

Although the location of mission and its sponsor is normally an individual church, mission must always occur in a close fellowship of cooperation with other Christian churches. With few exceptions, today’s mission can only be responsible if done in an ecumenical spirit of openness. We therefore welcome members of other churches who are willing to work with us.
