Mission U Offers Educational Opportunity For All

May 1, 2018 | GNJ News

Mission U, formerly known as Cooperative School of Christian Mission, is an annual educational opportunity offering studies for effective mission ministry in local churches and the United Methodist Church of Greater New Jersey. Women, men, youth and children, pastors and friends are invited  to attend. This can be a family retreat for learning, inspiring worship and fellowship where participants can choose a three day or a one day school. Studies this year include four courses for adults taught in English, Spanish and Korean and there are also studies for youth and children

This year’s theme is “Where is Your Treasure?” based on Matthew 6:20-21 which says, “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven. Where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your hear will be also.” (NRSV)
