This fall, Mission to the World (MTW) and Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) will co-sponsor the 2013 PCA Global Missions Conference, to be held Nov. 8-10 in Greenville, S.C. This year’s conference theme is “The Spirit Moves.”
College students, missionaries, church leaders, and laypeople are invited to gather together to learn how the Spirit is moving around the globe and to share in the excitement of God’s work.
“So often in our church we know only about the work of the particular missionaries we support,” reported a past conference attendee. “To see more of God’s work around the world is energizing, encouraging, and glorious.”
“The Spirit Moves” is not just a conference theme — the Spirit is indeed moving. New church growth is exploding across South Asia. The church in Africa is expanding by nearly 250,000 every week. National believers around the world are taking leadership in reaching their own communities with the gospel. In so many areas, God is doing something historic.
The 2013 Global Missions Conference will bring together Reformed University Ministries (RUM) national coordinator Rod Mays and MTW coordinator Paul Kooistra as plenary speakers, as well as Ravi Zacharias of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and Giotis Kantartzis, pastor of First Greek Evangelical Church in Athens, Greece. Worship during the conference will be led by Kevin Twit of Indelible Grace.
Breakout sessions will cover a range of topics relevant to participants’ interests. Whether a seasoned missions pastor, a missionary, or a student just beginning to explore missions, the conference seeks to address needs for each specific audience.
A Mercy Ministry pre-conference, led by Philip Langford of International Justice Mission (IJM), will begin Nov. 7. Sessions will help churches learn how to be the hands and feet of the gospel.
