If these issues are being debated in the state legislature, the Mission Team will provide timely information that recipients may use to develop input that may, in turn, help guide state policy and legislation. Upon request, the Mission Team will present seminars on Church and Society issues.

The Mission Team has contracted with Ray Schneider, former Economist for the Missouri Senate to monitor, interpret, and report on topics identified by the Mission Team.
