Ministries and Mission Interpreters
MMI, the Ministries and Mission Interpreters, are individuals passionate about mission and trained to convey the stories of mission and educate people in local churches about the work of mission around the world. MMIs represent their region (Disciples), conference (UCC) or constituency group. Currently there are fully trained and equipped MMIs actively interpreting in about two-thirds of our Conferences and Regions across the country.
The interpreters are the extended staff of Global Ministries, joining our partners in the US and across the world. The purpose is to create a ripple effect of raising awareness and passion for mission in the local church by training others to tell the stories and use our resources. The MMI group remains closely networked to each other through listserves, mailings, and regular communiques. They are available to speak, present workshops, arrange for missionary visits, provide displays and encourage ideas for mission events.
