SIMs. Who Are They?
All Covenant Missionaries, active or retired, are Special Interest Missionaries (SIMs).
Each female Covenant missionary is assigned to one of the denomination’s 9 conferences in the USA, for a period of 3 years. The Pacific Northwest Conference Women Ministries is assigned 5 active and 3 retired missionaries. Each church is then assigned 1 active and 1 retired missionary.
To find out who has been assigned to your church or to learn what you can do for your church’s SIM, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why Do We Do This?
We do this to love and support these missionaries as they serve God on the mission field. After the 3 year period, each missionary is rotated. The purpose is to:
- Learn to know our women missionaries
- To remember them in prayer
- To send letters, emails, and gifts
- Develop lasting friendships
- And give them a connection to home
