Missional Survey

Our church has spent many rewarding hours this year exploring how we as a church family can reach out to our greater community in support of local mission. Through our budget we support a number of local missions…each of which is very deserving. However, the extensive number of missions dilutes the impact we can make financially on each individual organization.

One of the most impactful sessions we had this year was the visit by Dr. Matt Cook, senior pastor at First Baptist Church, Wilmington, NC. Several years ago, FBC Wilmington found themselves in a similar situation with small donations going to many missions. They felt that their contribution was not making a significant impact on any of these deserving organizations. They changed their approach to a focus on missions where congregation members were actively involved. They then offered not only financial contribution, but also additional time, talent and resource support, essentially establishing a partnership with the selected missions. This resulted in a major reduction in the total number of missions being funded, but those that were supported were offered significant resource support of both financial contribution and human service.

The purpose of our FBC Missional Survey is to get a snapshot of our community missional involvement as a congregation. This information will be used to then help determine the level of partnership that is appropriate between our church and each organization.

In order to develop a program that can make a difference with our local missions, we need your help. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and then take it by the church office, give it to an usher, email to ahoneycutt2@triad.rr.com or fax it to the church at 336-249-4762.
Thank you for your help on this important project.
