“Could it be that the outward mission focus we received from previous generations is being eclipsed by a more modern, inward focus that is all about us? Through our research, we’ve heard from the mission leaders of African American, White, Latinx, and multiracial churches who feel uneasy about some elements of their short -term mission trips and yearn for the insights and tools they need to channel the transformational energy of STM into strategies that actually deepen trust and relationship and enable diverse Christians to participate in Jesus Christ’s transformation of the world.”  –Freeing Congregational Mission: A Practical Vision of Companionship, Cultural Humility, and CoDevelopment, chap. 1

Weekly online discussions using the new book Freeing Congregational Mission and led by Rev. Rod Frohman and Craig Kunkle.

Special feature on November 19: Authors B. Hunter Farrell and S. Balajiedlang Khyllep will be at First Presbyterian Church of Pittsford to help put into context what this vision of companionship means in our lives and our churches.
