What are the costs of church mobilization?

There are intangible costs:
–    time and organizational effort for meetings
–    long-distance communication with missionaries
–    study and research to grow in the area of missions and keep abreast of current issues
–    relational stretching, as you coordinate and work through issues with your missions team and church leadership

There are tangible costs as well:
–    expenses related to regular meetings and hosting those meetings
–    increased expenses as the church takes ownership of missionaries and ministries in a new way
–    significant expenses related to the shepherding and care of missionaries both on the field and home side including having church leaders visit them on the field
–    costs related to education, publicity, and promotion of missions interests on church walls and bulletin boards, Sunday school rooms, publications, newsletters, etc.
–    the costs of organizing and implementing an appealing, first-rate missions emphasis event on at least an annual basis
–    procuring training materials and trainers or a consultant (e.g.-from Propempo) for ongoing leadership training of your church missions team, staff, pastors and leaders
