Mission Centers in the Community of Christ exist to guide and support congregations as they pursue the mission of Christ. The Midlands Mission Center is comprised of twenty-six congregations and two campgrounds located in Kansas and Missouri.
A collection of full-time, part-time, and volunteer ministers and staff members work throughout the mission center to guide and support congregations, facilitate church expansion, and provide a connection between World Church ministries and local congregations.
Some of the key functions of the mission center staff and leaders include pastoral support of congregational leaders, leadership skill development, congregational consultant ministries, missionary ministries, church planting, congregational crisis support, financial resource development, specialized ministries, coordination of celebration events, technical assistance to congregations, and essential administrative duties.
Members of congregations meet each year for a mission center conference to sustain mission center leaders, approve budgets for mission center ministries, and consider other policy proposals. Leaders elected and sustained at the conference serve on boards and committees throughout the year to manage properties and funds that are supported by congregations in the mission center.
