Part 3: Developing a Covenant

Unit: Mission Group Process
Category: Working with Jesus

The spiritual foundation of a Mission Group is expressed in its “covenant.” This is a document which states the mission of the group and then outlines the basic operating rules of the group. These operating rules must focus primarily on how the spirituality of the group will be maintained if it is to be a Christ-centered group with missional activities empowered by the grace of Jesus through the Holy Spirit. All Mission Groups become deeply engaged in the business of their mission and spend much time working to understand and impact the conditions in the secular world that they seek to transform. Considerable attention is given to information and experiences that could be seen as entirely secular in nature. The only way to ensure that the group does not become just another secular enterprise is to adhere firmly to a core set of spiritual practices.
