Missions Ministry Survey
The Missions Committee developed a 5-question survey and would like to hear about YOU! Your feedback will make the committee aware of where God is already working and help us to discern where God is leading. The survey will also provide insight to how we relate to our community. If you have any questions, contact Kim Priddy - Email | x295.
