Strategic Plan

Vision

The Mountain Mission School Alumni Association is defined as the collection of all those who attended, were employed by, or graduated from, Mountain Mission School. We aspire to be the primary link between Mountain Mission School and its growing family of Alumni across the globe, to commit them to the School’s mission of “rescuing kids, raising leaders and reaching nations,” and to motivate them to give back.

Purpose

The purpose of the MMS Alumni Association is to promote the welfare of Mountain Mission School by cultivating a mutually beneficial relationship between the School and its ever-growing worldwide community of Alumni.

  • The Alumni Association provides and supports Alumni programs and services, facilitates communication with Alumni, and seeks to strengthen Alumni bonds of fellowship, professional
    association and school affiliation.
  • The Alumni Association leverages the resources, talents, and initiatives of Alumni and friends to advise, guide, advocate for and support the Association and the School in achieving their respective missions and goals.
  • The Alumni Association provides an Alumni network and encourages Alumni engagement in the life of the School.
  • The Alumni Association coordinates activities for advancing the School’s academic, residential,  spiritual, administrative, athletic and outreach programs.
  • The Alumni Association encourages Alumni to stay connected and serve as advocates for the school.
  • Core Values

    The cornerstone of our core values is found in Jesus Christ, the cornerstone of our faith and salvation, as  expressed in the School motto, Soli Deo Gloria (“Glory to God Alone”). All of our endeavors are to be  done with excellence, love, humility, gratitude and self-sacrifice, to the glory of God alone.

  • We value human diversity and the enrichment it brings to our lives and acknowledge our differences, rejecting all forms of prejudice.
  • We value integrity, civility, honesty, and ethical behavior and strive to maintain a working environment that is built on mutual respect, understanding and freedom of expression.
  • We value fellowship, personal growth and development, and the concept of community: local, regional, and global.
