What is mission?

Jaiah: “Mission is what you do to work to bring the love of God among people.”

Why is mission necessary?

Jaiah: “The world is one place and I feel being in mission in the world we are making connections and bringing people together. Mission is necessary to build relationships, and to tell the story of who we are and who made us, and how we are one group of people.”
