3 Tips for Mission Insite


MissionInsite is a demographics program that provides churches with instant access to community information. North Georgia United Methodists get desktop, web-based access to demographic data for a variety of geographic levels. Discovering your church’s ministry opportunities has never been easier!

We checked in with Rev. Scott Parrish, our Conference Missions Specialist, to ask his top 3 Mission Insite tips for clergy and churches getting started with this great tool. He shared:

My insider tips are:

  1. Basic information and a helpful overview video are at the NGUMC website https://www.ngumc.org/missioninsitedemographics
  2. For general demographic info the QuickInsite report is sufficient, but run the other reports for more comprehensive information.
  3. If you are clergy serving in a new appointment & you haven't used MissionInsite in your new setting yet, know that you'll need to request that change.
The Center for Congregational Excellence offers monthly training on Mission Insite with a focus on how to use the demographics as your church aligns ministry with current community realities. Learn more at https://www.ngumc.org/missioninsitedemographics.
