While MPC has six officially recognized mission partners, the truth is that mission is done in a myriad of ways. There are as many ways to do mission in service of Christ's Kingdom as there are people in the world. As a church, we want to recognize, support, pray for, and equip anyone doing mission - even if it isn't one of the six officially designated partners. The "Community Partnerships" liaison helps us identify and lift up such individuals.
Is there a mission or ministry you are passionate about? Then go out there and serve with that one. Community volunteers are members of the congregation who feel called to serve a mission or ministry that is not officially supported by MPC. The most important thing is that the members of MPC go out into the world to serve others and share the good news in Jesus name. Community Volunteers are a way of recognizing such individuals.
