Ministry Focus

Since MissionGO is a Christian mission organization whose role involves both ministry in and to the local church, both in the US and abroad, and since it is expected of our donor base that we operate as a Christian ministry giving honor to Jesus Christ, each employee shall:

  1. Participate in weekly prayer meetings and corporate prayers.
  2. Pray with missionaries when requested by the same or when deemed appropriate with missionary permission. (This will apply to some positions more than others.)
  3. Conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner at work and outside the workplace.
  4. Promote and defend the evangelical approach to ministry that MissionGO has adopted and put into practice.

It is further recognized that, since MissionGO is a faith-based ministry, both in the US and abroad, each employee should be a member in good standing of a church that is in agreement with the Statement of Faith of MissionGO.
