    7 May, 2015

    It is with a sense of loss that GMP shares the news that Mitch Kay will conclude his role as the National Coordinator of embody at the completion of his current term at the end of June. Mitch has made an insightful, creative and energetic contribution to GMP. His work creating, launching and establishing embody has been a great gift to Churches of Christ. He has involved others and inspired them to see what is possible through embody. Campaigns such as Prayer Matters and Safe Water September have been launched and new networks have sprung up. GMP is engaged with younger people in ways we have not been in the past.
