Mission Interpreters are lay, volunteer leaders from around the synod with a special, integral task. Their primary role is to share the love of Christ by sharing stories. Mission Interpreters empower congregational members to feel connected to God’s activity in and outside the walls of the sanctuary. Stories of the Spirit’s work through our synod and denomination are highlighted by Mission Interpreters.
