The Strategic Mission Team is the assembled heads of all of SJD’s internal organizations that give and serve the world. That group meets 6-7 times a year to make sure we are giving strategically and working strategically for the good of our world. Their meeting gives us greater alignment toward our church’s purpose (“Connect everyone to Jesus in ways that change the world for good”) and our Outreach Mandate (The World’s Need. Our Unique Contribution. God’s Glory). This insures that we continue to move from charity toward Christian Community Development principles and prevents duplication of efforts.
