The Witness, Mercy, Life Together supplement to the October Reporter included a profile of the Office of National Mission (ONM) by the Rev. Bart Day, its executive director. While that supplement is available online (click here), here is a brief summary of the article.
Some ONM departments were part of the former District and Congregational Services; others have been absorbed from LCMS World Relief and Human Care and LCMS World Mission:
- Recognized Service Organizations,
- Worship, and
- Church and Community Engagement.
The word “engagement” is an important part of this last department, Day says.
The Office of National Mission “serves a critical role in supporting our work at home,” Day said in his profile. “We are absolutely committed to remaining relevant and supportive of the needs of the Church.”
