Over the last 4 months, a team from Home Missions and World Missions worked closely with Calvin Social Resource (CSR) developing a presentation and a survey process to engage stakeholders.
In this survey, which was shared both with Internal Agency Staff/Board Members and with External Partners, we invited feedback to an initial draft of our Organizational Framework. We encouraged input into the wording of various pieces and gleaned helpful suggestions in wording and in areas of early collaboration where we could begin the work of doing ministry together as staff and partners.
A great deal of collective wisdom was gleaned from these surveys and from a number of additional discernment groups that were convened to give further input into our organizational framework.
What we share with you now is the latest version of that framework. We anticipate at least one more round of engagement before the April board meetings which may result in further modifications. Over the next months as we begin to find places of early collaboration where we as staff can begin to work together in new ways, this framework will play a huge part in helping us learn not only what we want to do together but also how we want to work together.
It will also give increasingly clarity in the variety of important choices that will need to be made as we begin to discern where God is leading us.
We now invite you to engage with the content of this Organizational Framework. We want to participate in discussion about the words and ideas and how a New Mission Agency will serve God's Kingdom.
