Muncie Mission began providing compassionate rescue services on an immediate and/
or long-term basis to the poor and needy of East Central Indiana on October 25, 1930.
The Mission had no permanent building. The staff consisted of Eddie Thomas and a
few committed volunteers. Since that time, much has changed in the world, culture, and
society. Changes and improvements occurred at the Mission that have advanced the
ministry. However, the mission of providing compassionate care in the name of Christ
remains the same. And, it will continue.
You are getting a first look at the new Mission logo. As the Muncie Mission moves forward to the future,it is important to restate the vision and have a logo that is a visual representation of it.
Looking at the new logo…
the first thing you may see is an “M” in
two colors. Look closer. Can you see two arms linked together as
if two people are standing shoulder to shoulder, with their arms
intertwined? One arm is whole, the other broken. The strong arm,
the one that is whole is red, representing not only the Mission
and its supporters, but also the sacrificial love of Christ. The other
arm is broken. It is receiving relational support from Christ, the Muncie Mission, and a
community of supporters and volunteers.
This next year will be a transition period from the retiring logo to the new image of the
Muncie Mission. What is not changing are the same compassionate services that have
been offered to the poor and needy for 87 years.
My hope is that you are as excited about
what the new logo represents as we are.
