Presbytery of Southeastern Illinois

A community in which God in Christ is present in our relationships, and the Spirit is apparent in our actions of welcome, hospitality, witness, leadership, and service

Mission Connections Team

God is calling us to bold and energetic connections with the communities we serve. The Missions Connections Team maintains and strengthens relationships with designated Presbytery missions, promotes and supports missional ministries of social, racial, and environmental justice, peacemaking, and self- empowerment throughout the congregations of the Presbytery, and promotes and supports special missional outreach ministries of evangelism and discipleship from the congregations of the Presbytery.

This Team engages in ecumenical and interfaith dialogue, facilitating and mutually supporting collegial relationships and forms of joint congregational mission and witness with other ecumenical and interfaith partners, as well as supporting emerging ministry partnerships among congregations, non-profit partners, and ecumenical and interfaith organizations which fulfill the mission of the Presbytery.

This Team will be elected to 1-3 year terms of service by the Presbytery upon nomination of the Committee on Representation.
