Interfaith Mission Service (IMS) Partnership

The Interfaith Mission Service is not an agency. Its leadership and subsequent ministries  are established by the member (owner) congregations. 
Consequently, all member congregations are beneficiaries of the service learning opportunities provided by the collaborative ministries e.g. a congregation can lead in one ministry and support in another.
The ministry spectrum covers the spectrum from direct service (relief) and getting beyond relief to systemic transformation; be that race relations, inter-religious relations or social justice.
