A district superintendent may use zone facilitators or mission area directors to assist in:

  1. Building a sense of community and camaraderie among the pastors of that zone or mission area;
  2. Promoting the cause of Christ by encouraging and strategizing for ministerial development, church growth, evangelism, starting and restarting churches;
  3. Carrying out specific assignments on behalf of the district superintendent and the District Advisory Board; and
  4. Serving as a communications bridge between the local congregations and the district.
