MISSIONAL LIVING CONFERENCE SCHEDULE

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 25 - SUNDAY, MARCH 3, 2024

"As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you," (Jesus, John 20:21). Jesus sends us on the same mission in which His Father sent Him—to bring the light of the gospel to a dark and dying world. Our commitment as a church and the purpose of our missions conference this year is to help you train and be equipped to fulfill this God-given purpose and mission. This year's church-wide emphasis is Courageous Steps to Missional Living and we believe this year's conference will be a great tool to help us all get the year started on target!

 

As a way to say thank you for registering early for the conference events, we will be giving away PRIZES (e.g. dinner at Halls, hiking gear, water bottles, etc.). For every event you register for by Wednesday, February 14, your name will be entered into a drawing for these prizes. Winners will be announced on the last day of the conference on March 3. 

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 25

The conference will kick off with David Cassidy (lead pastor at Spanish River PCA in Boca Raton, FL) preaching about what it looks like to be a church on mission as we actively seek to reach the world for Jesus Christ. We will have many Global Partners in our Sunday School communities and leading electives. That evening, return for an international potluck dinner. Bring your favorite dish to share (in a disposable container) and then hear from our Local Outreach Partners! David Cassidy will speak again, challenging us to take seriously the call to follow Jesus and serve His mission. The evening will conclude with a time to interact with our local and Global Partners in the exhibit hall. Kids (crib to Grade 4) will eat upstairs with their families and then come down to Kids Ministry.
