Missions Pastors, Directors of Missions and Community Ministers serve as the missions specialist for the church, offering expertise and guidance to ministries. They facilitate mission and volunteer events and trainings within the church with the intent of educating the congregation and equipping the laity to serve in missions both locally and beyond, helping them make adequate preparations. They develop a personal relationship with the missionaries and mission organizations that are partners of the religious organizations. They receive and evaluate requests for financial support coming from missions partners and from the wider field of need. They seek to build a growing bond between the congregation and mission partners through effective communication.
