Mission Capacity Support Team

MCST Envisaged Future

The Mission Capacity Support Team (MCST) is a network of Mission Coordinators from around the world. It meets twice a year for team building, reviewing progress, and leadership development and training.

Between face-to-face meetings, we operate in three on-line Peer Groups to implement our local and global 3-year project.

The MCST Executive, led by the Convenor, has been appointed to lead the implementation of the project in line with our Annual Plan which is approved at MCST meetings.
