The Home Missions Team (formerly the Home Missions Committee) is a group of parishioners commissioned by the leadership of the parish to discern, communicate, and organize the parish’s local mission and outreach efforts. The Team leads by example and provides the congregation of St. Philip’s with opportunities to serve and minister to the people of Charleston by partnering with local Christian organizations who have demonstrated their ability to meet the physical and spiritual needs of our neighbors.
In January, the Home Missions Team met for their annual retreat, a wonderful day of prayer, discernment and planning. The Team is investigating several organizations for possible partnership in 2020, so stay tuned!
