What is Missional Giving?

Partners  in the Great Commission: Missional Giving

“God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” Matthew 28: 18-20

Missional Giving

Missional Giving Contributions makes it possible for the presbytery to support and resource congregations and presbytery partners in the fulfillment of the Great Commission. Newton has transitioned toward a more missional focus which resources and empowers congregations to work together in partnership with each other and their communities.

Missional Giving Contributions enable us to:

Equip and Develop Pastoral and Congregational Leadership as we walk alongside churches and pastors in discerning conversations, times of transition, and with new ministry possibilities. We also journey with new candidates for ordination, Ruling Elders as Commissioned Lay Pastors, and development of new skills for new and seasoned pastors.

Foster new opportunities for Collaborative Ministry partnerships as churches envision new ministry opportunities and necessary leadership to revitalize congregational identity, mission, and strategies for sustainability and growth.

Mentor the next generation of Spiritual Leaders for the present and the future. Leadership is found in the young people of our congregations and communities. We are committed to mentoring and providing spiritual support for the next generation.

Resource and Support Congregations in their mission to their communities and partners in ministry.

Celebrate and engage with our historical partners in ministry through collaborative ministry with the Synod, General Assembly, other presbyteries and ecumenical and interfaith partners.

Nurture a Sense of Community among the congregations and spiritual leaders of the Presbytery through worship, learning, caring and sharing of the good news of fulfillment of the Great Commission.
