Missions Interlink supports the work of mission from and within Aotearoa New Zealand in a number of ways. Primarily, we designate times and places to bring together people in our community to kōrero (converse) about common topics of interest. We also keep the wider missions community up to date with the latest in missions news through our BULLETIN panui (e-publication). But we also whakamahi (work or carry out activities) on behalf of the whole community to represent the industry in church, public and governmental spheres and create relevant resources that can assist all mission activity from and within Aotearoa New Zealand.
Our ultimate aim is to see disciples developed everywhere, baptised in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, passionate in their worship of God, growing in their unique gifts of service and actively involved in extending God’s kingdom around the world.
To achieve this, we work to encourage mission promotion, training, advocacy, support, recruitment, sending, ministering, caring, sustaining, and receiving. We believe this is best done in partnership between mission workers, local churches and organisations that specialize in helping people to carry out and stay on mission.
We provide a missions consultancy service to help individuals, member organisations, governance teams, church mission teams and churches navigate their way through the tides of change buffeting mission as we have known it to be. To arrange an appointment or to chat about what’s possible, get in touch.
We keep apprised of the latest missions thinking from around the world and within Aotearoa New Zealand. Together, as a community, our research produces training material, handbooks, guidelines, codes of practice and articles that help our members navigate their way into a fruitful future and stay on mission.
We formally represent the missions community of Aotearoa New Zealand globally and locally: to the Church, in academic circles, before government (as a member of the InterChurch Bureau and on our own authority), and to the global missions community (via the World Evangelical Alliance, Lausanne Movement, World Christian researchers and other forums).
