Missions Conference November 4-6, 2013

Missions Conference Theme

Of Whom the World is Not Worthy

The Persecuted Church Around the World

Developed and arranged by students for students, the Missions Conference provides each individual with the opportunity to be involved in the hands-on process of organizing an extended conference. Led by Missions Major Chair Mr. Phillip Peterson and a student Steering Committee, the sophmores and juniors flesh out the details with assistance from the freshman and seniors. As a result, attendees hear from special speakers and missionaries, while experiencing the work of numerous "servants in training."

This year's annual Missions Conference is rooted in Hebrews 11:38, “Of whom the world is not worthy...”
