The 2017 Cooperative School of Christian Mission (Mission u) is a great educational opportunity for local churches across Greater New Jersey. Mission u provides a choice of either an affordable educational weekend or a one day workshop.  It is designed for those looking for in-depth spiritual formation, dialogue, reflection, and study.
