Mission Collective is a one-day event for equipping churches in best practices for mission through collaboration. We gather expert practitioners, church leaders and CBF staff around a relevant topic- bringing together collective wisdom for collective action. Together we seek to respond faithfully to God's call to love the world and serve our neighbor.
Mission Collective goals:
- Equip churches for best practices for mission engagement
- Incubate new collaborative church ministries and networks
- Strengthen relationships between local churches and established mission work
- Offer Global Missions staff and field personnel to churches as a resource
How it works: Mission Collectives occur where and when a congregation senses a need to address a particular issue in their community or congregation. Global Missions staff works with the host church and state/regional CBF organizations to invite additional churches, discern a topic, plan and staff the event. A few topic examples include: Engaging Internationals, Reclaiming Evangelism for the 21st Century, Strategic Partnerships, and Short-term Missions with Integrity.

Mission Collectives feature CBF Global Missions Coordinator Steven Porter, along with field personnel and staff. They typically occur on a Saturday with additional resources offered to participating churches the following Sunday.
