Membership

Why become a member?

Micah is both a movement and a network for integral mission. As a Member, you will be able to fully participate in the diverse global community of Micah: sharing and growing together in the practice of integral mission and standing united in our advocacy efforts against poverty, injustice and conflict.

By joining as a Micah member, you will be adding your voice, your knowledge and your unique gifting to the Micah movement – we are stronger together, and your membership adds to our value.

In becoming a member of Micah, you will be equipped and encouraged towards:

  • Increased effectiveness in applying integral mission approaches
  • Increased efficiency through sharing information and learning on integral mission, for example:
    • Theological reflection - the why. Seeking to understand God's missionary heart as we respond in a relevant way to the needs around us
    • Good practice - the how. Striving to respond to the needs around us in a relevant and appropriate way
    • Inspiring and motivating one another - celebrating testimonies of transformation, sharing learning through case studies, reviews and experiences, continuously improving
  • Increased capacity to add to a united voice, advocating for and with the poor, oppressed and marginalised
  • Building genuine relationships with fellow members, mutually building one another up in the work of integral mission
  • Participation in key discussions, events and workshops, allowing further growth in the understanding and application of integral mission, whilst contributing your own expertise and insight to an ongoing, global dialogue.

As a movement we pursue together a common goal to promote integral mission because we believe that demonstrating and proclaiming God's love is the responsibility of all Christians. God's love for the world challenges us to engage in and with society, seeking holistic transformation.

Membership therefore helps us to stand together as a group of Christians committed to integral mission and to motivate and inspire one another and others to embrace and practice integral mission.

There are three types of membership in Micah, depending upon whether you are applying on behalf of an organisation (and what type of organisation this is), or as an individual.

If you are considering membership with Micah, you can read more about the rationale here.
