Those who feel called to move toward a commitment to the mission group, and its structure and work, are encouraged to attend mission group meetings for a period of at least three months prior to making a commitment. This is to enable fuller understanding of the mission itself, the nature of membership in the mission group, and provide a period of preparation for readiness to make this commitment. At the time of commitment, the new member will share her/his spiritual autobiography with the group.
