ENTRUST - EXIT:

  • Provide a formal “Core Missionary Tasks” assessment of SCORE missionaries and national CP partners by December 2020.

REMINDER:

  • Discipleship multiplication, church planting and each element of the Core Missionary Task is contingent on the sovereign and providential movement of God. We are responsible for obeying, not the results. Consequently, as we abide in Christ we must be attentive to His desire to adjust any of the above goals. However, our abiding in Christ also creates confidence that as we obey the controllables of Kingdom advancement He is faithful to multiply that fruit of the harvest for His glory.
