To the Central USA Mission Center


Dear Friends,

With the announcement of Jared Sloan’s retirement as of 29 February 2020, all are invited to join with mission center and field leaders in prayerfully considering leadership needs of the mission center. There are many challenges and opportunities facing the church in this mission center and throughout the world. The Central Mission Center is uniquely poised to respond to these missional challenges and opportunities through ongoing collaboration, shared leadership, and generous response in Christ’s mission.

Please note he following opportunities to engage with mission center and field leaders regarding leadership needs:

  • January 9: Town Hall Meeting, Woods Chapel congregation, 6:30-8:30
  • January 10: Online survey available at
  • February 8: Dialogue with Mission Center Council
  • February 13: Dialogue with Pastors and Leaders

A spring conference will be held in April to set apart new leadership and honor President Sloan’s forty years of church employment and faithful service in Christ’s mission. Please contact me at if you have any questions or feedback throughout this selection process.

In the peace of Christ,

Janné C. Grover, Apostle

Central USA Mission Field
