Serving Foursquare in the U.S. and globally requires partnership locally, nationally and internationally. By intentionally creating areas of overlap and integration, the Shared Mission team is able to serve more connected and coordinated than ever before.
As we pursue our target of more and growing leaders together on mission, we are working to recruit, develop and send leaders. This includes new and current onramps to co-mission for:
- Foursquare Missions International (FMI)
- Foursquare Disaster Relief (FDR)
- Foursquare Chaplains International (FCI)
- Affinity Networks
- Immigrant and non-majority cultures
