Separate Offerings for World Missions and Home Missions?

Comments (1)

Are World Missions & Home Missions still two separate ministries? I had heard that they were combining. Our church has been taking separate offerings for them and I was wondering if that is correct.

Hi Michelle,

Thank you for asking and thank you for supporting Home Missions and World Missions.

Home Missions and World Missions will be completing this fiscal year as two separate agencies, with two separate budgets. Both agencies still have financial and ministry commitments this year, and Synod 2017 is expected to give final approval of the transition to a new mission agency. Behind-the-scenes work to bring the two agencies together is continuing, but a lot of important steps need to be completed before making the "official" transition—such as selecting a name, designing a logo, finalizing new ministry leaders, and searching for new ministry opportunities.

We see this joining as a time to work together in new ways and identify new ministry opportunities that may not have been possible before. We hope to continue current ministry and grow new ministry, and we pray that churches will join us in supporting that growth.

You can find more information about this process, including stories of ways that Home Missions and World Missions have already been working together, at www.crcna.org/hm-wm.
