January 9, 2014: “Metrics in Missions” How should we measure missions? (And should we?) What indicators can we use? Fruitfulness? Outcomes? Results? How do we evaluate financial involvement?
Meeting at North Heights Lutheran Church (Arden Hills, 35W & Hwy 96)
March 13 TBA
May 8: “Intersection of Local & Global Outreach” Integrating global missions and evangelism with local outreach and service. Facilitated by Erik Hyatt, New City of Nations Church
Upcoming Sessions: Write to TCAMP@transformmn.org to add your name to the email list to receive meeting announcements.
Food: Bring your own “brown bag” lunch. Desserts and beverages are provided by the host church, and you are welcome to bring your own meal and eat with everyone else.
Meeting Times: The meeting is from noon-1:30. To encourage learning and collaboration we invite you to arrive 10-15 minutes early, or feel free to stay longer to network with other leaders.
Our Purpose: TCAMP seeks to deliver two important values to local churches and global missions leaders:
- Connect mission leaders to add momentum to the global missions movement. The Twin Cities is privileged to have a strong, collaborative missions community. Few other US cities have such a community.
- Support the professional development of mission movements by sharing best practices and opportunities for learning. TCAMP serves as a professional peer network for mission leaders from church staffs, mission committees, field workers and other ministry entities.
Anyone is welcome to come and participate in TCAMP meetings. Here are expectations that we all agree to:
- Meetings are for the purpose of learning, contributing and staying connected. Don’t come to fundraise or promote your own agenda.
- It is important that as mission leaders we stay connected to each other and support the expansion of Gods Kingdom everywhere. We meet only 5 times each year; if you are involved in the network try to attend each meeting.
Steering Team / Transform Minnesota
Transform Minnesota facilitates the TCAMP network by managing a communication list, coordinating the schedule and sending meeting announcements. We rely on a steering team of mission pastors to guide program development and coordinate each specific topic or presentation.
