Mission Advisory Team (MAT)

Our Mission Advisory Team (MAT) is a dedicated team of Christ Presbyterian members who focus year-round on ensuring that all funds given toward Missional Partnerships (non-profits and missionaries receiving monthly Christ Presbyterian funds) and Global Grants align with our mission and vision.

Our MAT also helps Christ Presbyterian members become actively involved in serving with our Missional Communities many of which receive Missional Grants (funds vetted and approved to support their loving people, places, and things to life across greater Nashville). Christ Presbyterian members who are active in Missional Communities include mentors, teachers, crafters, caretakers, physicians, scholars, builders, friends, conversationalists, farmers, travelers, artisans and followers of Christ.

More About the MAT

The MAT continuously evaluates the groups Christ Presbyterian partners with, ensuring partners aren’t just well-intended, but are truly impactful in three core areas: Mercy & Justice, Public Faith and Faith & Work.

Think of the MAT as the bridge between the congregation and Christ Presbyterian’s partners in the Church, Nashville and the World. Our desire is to be strategic and effective as we ensure that we are being good stewards of God’s provision and true to our mission, values and philosophy of ministry. To contact our MAT directly with a question or special request, please email us at MAT@christpres.org.
