Bible College News: A Missions Challenge
The focus of ABC’s Missions Conference was captured during our opening session this morning as Mr. Phil Peterson, Chair of the Missions Major, challenged those in attendance with five simple thoughts. First, see God in His holiness. It was this occurrence in the life of Isaiah that compelled the prophet to say, “Here am I Lord, send me.” Second, sacrifice self. Third, step out of your comfort zone. This is captured in the preceding verses (19-22) of our theme verse, I Corinthians 9:23. Fourth, strive diligently. And finally, serve globally as commanded in the Great Commission.
Reverend Steve Faulks, representative for Baptist Mid-Missions, then shared the first part of a missionary biography. His ministry during these days will introduce our times together each morning and evening. This is designed to provoke thought and challenge in the hearts of those in attendance as they hear of a life committed to Christ, for the sake of the Gospel.
The conference will continue this evening with Dr. Robert Alderman, Conference Speaker, building on his mornings message “What is Behind ‘This I Do’?” You are encouraged to listen to our Missions Conference messages on our website or join us on Facebook.
