Global Missions Conference

"Exalted Among the Nations"

Friday–Sunday, February 22–24

Conference Speaker: Ronnie Stevens | Multicultural Worship Led by Proskuneo | Kids' Missions Conference: "Go Tell It On The Mountain"

Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! (Psalm 46:10)

This passage tells us to recognize that God is the One who will be exalted. We need to be still and recognize His sovereignty, and be active participants in exalting Him. Come to the conference to hear how our missionaries and National Partners are impacting the Nations.

There are activities for the entire family: Child care (nursery–age 3), Kids’ Missions Conference (For ages 3 ½ years old–5th grade), Missions Coffee House (hosted by Common Ground), worship services, and seminars for adults. Plan to attend this year’s conference, where we’ll hear stories from around the world about how God is making His name known among the nations and learn about how to help exalt Him at home and abroad.

Ronnie Stevens

Ronnie is a native of Atlanta, Georgia, and graduated from the University of Georgia and Dallas Theological Seminary.

Proskuneo

  

Proskuneo Ministries helps the Body of Christ to see, live, and share the vision of multicultural, Jesus-centered worshipping communities on earth as in heaven. The Bible is clear that one day we will gather with people from every nation to worship God around the throne.  And yet, here on earth, churches are often segregated by race, age, language, denomination, and style. We believe that Jesus is worthy of diverse, united praise.

 
 
Conference Project: Exalting God in Nepal

We will raise funds for projects for the Nepal Gospel Centre, including GLOW (God Loves Orphans and Widows). This ministry offers biblical and practical training to equip disadvantaged women to support their families and impact their communities for Christ. See the display in the Fellowship Hall Foyer to learn more.
