Mission Advisory Team (MAT)

Our Mission Advisory Team (MAT) is a dedicated team of CPC members who focus year-round on ensuring that all funds given toward Missional Partnerships (non-profits and missionaries receiving monthly CPC funds) and Global Grants align with our CPC mission/vision. Our MAT also helps CPC 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). CPC 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 CPC 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 CPC’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 CPC mission, values, and philosophy of ministry. To contact our MAT directly with a question or special request, please email us at MAT@christpres.org.
