Updates from the Mission Formation Team

The Mission Formation Team (MFT) exists to guide the congregation in our missions involvement, both domestically and overseas. We desire to connect our members with opportunities for outreach in many places outside of our church campus, including Durham, Chapel Hill, and overseas.

On May 6, we met to pray for our CGS outreach partners and to begin updating and revising our “Local Outreach Policy” to include some new initiatives. In the coming months, we’re excited to re-engage with some long-term CGS ministry partners and connect church members with opportunities to follow Jesus into ministry in strategic ways. We’re also praying about ways to stimulate ourselves and the church towards greater efforts in evangelism.

The current members of the MFT are:

  • Norman Acker (Ruling Elder, Southwest Neighborhood)
  • Richard Alford (Deacon, Northeast Neighborhood)
  • Oscar Aylor (Ruling Elder, Southeast Neighborhood)
  • Mandy Balevic (Northwest Neighborhood)
  • Debbi Busbee (Northeast Neighborhood)
  • Chris Garrett (Teaching Elder, Northwest Neighborhood)
  • Colleen Hieronymus (Southeast Neighborhood)
  • Aaron McKethan (Ruling Elder, Southeast Neighborhood)
  • Brenda Pun (Downtown Neighborhood)

Please continue in prayer for us.

CGS Elders

The Session is the group of elders called to care for, serve, equip, and oversee a local Presbyterian congregation. We meet on the first Monday of each month to pray, discuss the ministries of the church, and encourage and sharpen one another.
