This year’s Global Missions Conference was unique! While the main sessions were in-person and live-streamed, the heart of the Conference occurred over Zoom where we could talk with each of our missionaries, where they live. Jason Seville did an excellent job of teaching us a Biblical foundation for why reaching the least reached is important. He also emphasized the importance of the local church in the work of missions and challenged us with the thought that success should be measured by faithfulness.
The goal of the Conference was to Inform, Connect, and Engage. Friday night was called “Missiology 101.” We were informed on some core concepts about missions and about reaching the least reached people groups around the world. The Zoom “Meet & Greets” with all of our missionaries allowed us to connect personally with each one and allowed many of our people to get to know them better. Then, the Sunday night service focused us on our engagement in God’s mission by outlining various “next steps” that each of us could pursue with the Holy Spirit’s direction.
Worship is always an important aspect of every Conference. Ken Boer and his worship team took us in to a deeper relationship with the Lord via song and scripture. Matthew Jat, originally from Myanmar (Burma), was highlighted as he assisted the worship team. Cortney Cannon and the Children’s Ministry had Mission Possible: Salvation Among All Nations, where the kids learned about First Evan missionaries and were challenged to consider and pray for people who had never heard the name Jesus or never had the opportunity to know a Christian.
“That your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.” (Psalm 67:2) As we give praise to our Heavenly Father, may we consider how we might be involved in reaching THE LEAST REACHED.

Global Missions Conference Feedback
This year’s project intends to reach into communities who have NOT heard the Good News, because they do not have access to hearing about Jesus. There is no local church nor have they ever talked to a follower of Christ.
By providing educational and vocational training, our ministry partners gain credibility in the community. This year we seek to establish training centers that will offer opportunities for people to learn simple, yet marketable, skills that allow them to earn a living. But providing for people physically is only the beginning of a relationship that we hope will blossom into communities of Jesus followers.
