8 What Do Mission Interpreters Do? Mission interpreters, volunteers from congregations in each synod of the ELCA, tell the story of how our offerings and gifts are transformed into effective ministries. They remind us of how we make a difference in Christs mission and the work of the church, and they thank our people for their faithful giving.

9 Mission Interpreters present temple talks visit church councils visit boards & committees submit news for church publications attend training workshops commit to serve at least 2 years

10 Mission Interpreters receive: Weekly Mission Memos Resource Materials Coaching Inspiration Networking Gatherings to share ideas & information

11 Congregations benefit from Mission Interpreters W hen members understand their identity as partners in a wider church, they become strong advocates supporting the mission and ministry we share beyond the congregations, through the synod and then on through the churchwide organization.

12 By looking beyond the congregation, members see how they are personally connected to mission and ministry around the world! Mission-minded congregations are growing in membership and spirit!
