Activities conducted in Global Mission are done in the context of responding to human need around the world, while witnessing to God’s love. The programming of Global Mission falls into six broad categories:

  • church development
  • health and well-being
  • education
  • peacebuilding
  • economic empowerment and
  • agriculture development

Global Mission envisions the development of a global Church of the Brethren consisting of autonomous groups that witness to their broader communities while mutually encouraging one another as branches from the denomination vine. It seeks to deepen faith and relationships with established mission points, promoting outreach ministries and developing leadership. With emerging mission points, it seeks to promote core Brethren beliefs and practices while building organizational capacity and deepening faith.
