GENERAL PURPOSE OF POSITION: Provides leadership in the development and production of program resources for basic mission education and interpretation among conferences, associations and local churches within the United Church of Christ (UCC.)

The MEI executive carries responsibility for planning, budget development, program administration and implementation, coordination, and the ongoing evaluation of the WCM’s and, with Disciples colleagues, of CGMB’s mission education and interpretation.
