These guidelines (click on link below to access) have been developed to assist your Mission Study Team and the church through the Mission Study process. By definition, following a guideline is never mandatory. The Presbytery of the Inland Northwest is blessed to be comprised of a wide variety of congregations, and it would be impossible to write a definitive guide to Mission Studies that would address every need and concern. Please use these guidelines as a map for the process of celebrating who you are, as a congregation, who you have been, and discovering who you long to become. Tailor, replace, or add activities as you see fit. The goal is to encourage hope, vision, and possibility for your congregation’s future.
If you are experiencing a pastoral leadership transition, your Commission on Ministry Liaison and Executive Presbyter will conduct an exit interview and an orientation of the Mission Study process with the Session. Please refer to the Presbytery website (Resources) for further information. (Click the following link for: Transition Steps Guidelines.)
If you have any questions, please contact your Commission on Ministry Liaison. Your COM Liaison’s name and contact info can be found here: COM Liaison Information.
