Venture in Mission (VIM)
The 1976 General Convention resolved to issue a call to the church to work and pray for a “Venture in Mission” to provide mission development funding for the national church. Most dioceses participated, joining their efforts for Venture in Mission with their own fund-raising efforts to contact every congregation for support. The 1979 and 1982 General Conventions continued this largely successful fund-raising program with resolutions of commendation and appreciation.
