COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

Building community is fundamental to who we are as MCC. People need connection and a place to belong. Loneliness and isolation are significant issues in today’s world and are also opportunities for us to develop new ways of engaging with people, such as online communities using different languages, as well as continuing to plant and grow churches. Strong communities need healthy, trained and empowered leaders, both lay and clergy. Our local congregations and church leaders have a wealth of experience and expertise. The networks are excellent ways of sharing best practice and learning from one another. We also want to further develop our online learning and resources to share the excellent ministry that MCC does around the world.

RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT

MCC needs to have robust and effective systems to be able to support all the ministry areas in Community Development. We want to have an excellent and user-friendly website, increase our presence on social media and continue to improve our internal communications. It has to be easy for MCCers to send us information and ideas, and for MCC to have up to date contact details for individuals and churches. Local churches around the world continue to be faithful in giving their assessments in a timely manner. We want to find additional income to support our global ministry and work with local churches to explore income opportunities for them too.
