We are excited to launch the new website. While Member Mission has many tools available, this new website is expected to open many doors for Member Mission. This website is a great starting place if you believe that the most effective agents of God's mission in today's world are the members acting on their own in their daily places to make the world more loving and just.
Plattsburgh, NY (PRWEB) September 1, 2009 -
Member Mission, an ecumenical not-for-profit organization whose mission is to teach the baptized to see themselves as missionaries out in the world in each of their daily places doing God's work with Jesus' help and guidance, has redesigned it's website at http://www.membermission.org. The new website design was built using Adobe Dreamweaver and has an updated look and feel that better reflects the everyday life of the members.
The website has new navigation on both the top and bottom of each page to make it easier for visitors to find the resources they are interested in. These resources include 26 basic tools, 27 sermons and talks, 18 session plans, 70 newsletters, an online e-newsletter registration form, and many more tools that can help clergy and lay leaders more easily bring Member Mission into their congregations.
The Rev. A. Wayne Schwab, Member Mission founder and director, said, "We are excited to launch the new website. While Member Mission has many tools available, this new website is expected to open many doors for Member Mission. This website is a great starting place if you believe that the most effective agents of God's mission in today's world are the members acting on their own in their daily places to make the world more loving and just."
"We believe the most effective agents of God's mission in Jesus Christ are each of the baptized in their daily places - at home, at work, in their local communities and the wider world, in their leisure time, in their church life and outreach as well as in activities devoted to spiritual health. These daily places are their daily mission fields. To live this way, they need support and education. Therefore, congregations need to take on as their primary purpose, or one of their primary purposes, supporting their members in their daily living as Christians. Member Mission's goal is to help each baptized person to join in God's mission in the world Monday to Saturday and to have a congregation equipped to help them do it on Sunday," Schwab concluded.
Member Mission Network, Inc. is a non-profit corporation formed to disseminate and implement the vision and resources of member mission. The work is underpinned by the published book, When the Members are the Missionaries: An Extraordinary Calling for Ordinary People. The concepts presented in the book are currently being implemented by over 30 Episcopal, Methodist, and Lutheran churches, the South Carolina Baptist Convention and have resulted in 12 workshops conducted throughout the United States and Canada. Lessons gleaned from these workshops and churches working with member mission have led to a number of tools included in two guide books to be published entitled, Living the Gospel: For Small Groups and Living the Gospel: For Church Leaders.
