Mission Support Group

Members of the Mission Support Group (MSG) are called to individual mission or are in the process of discerning mission. The group provides a place of support and accountability for these individual calls, which have included specific work for peacemaking and justice; mediation; pastoring; woodworking; engagement with issues of poverty and equity; and offering help to any Seeker as needed – for example, rides for those unable to drive. MSG also administers the Growing Edge Fund as part of its mission to support the calls of individual Seekers.

MSG is also a place for people who know they want the support and accountability of a mission group but have either not yet clearly identified their call or do not see in existing mission groups one that matches their sense of call.

MSG meets every week to support each member in his or her call. Meetings begin with a meditative reading, silent meditation, and prayer; and they include sharing by all members about their calls and other issues affecting the members’ spiritual lives as well as their personal lives. The group generally devotes time to other activities in each meeting, such as discussing new GEF proposals; delving more deeply into spiritual matters, such as the call of one member; or discussing issues of concern to Seekers or the wider church. MSG asks members to engage in disciplines, including regular spiritual reports.
