In a faith-based mission-driven organisation, leaders and staff need to learn and develop to enable them to play their part in making the mission come alive.  A new section of this website - http://www.css.org.au/Mission-Formation/Mission-Formation.aspx - now presents resources to enable such 'Engaging with Mission'.  These resources relate to recruitment, induction, leadership formation, and deeper engagement.  Any feedback on this material, or ideas for further development of this repository, would be most welcome:  contact Peter Hudson, tel 9287 5570.
