VOLUNTEERS IN MISSION (VIM) is being coordinated in our district by Pam Elliott, who has been frustrated by lack of guidance from the conference level. Consensus in our committee was that the district can move forward on its own, and the conference can catch up later, so Pam was asked to do whatever she feels is in the district’s best interest. VIM provides a framework for local mission programs, somewhat like training wheels, to make mission trips safer and more effective. Pam welcomes contact at dispro512@gmail.com  from churches or individuals interested in improving their mission trips, and if she is not snowed under by responses, she’ll be contacting you to stimulate some interest.
