Mission to North America (MNA) will host the 2015 PCA Mercy Conference in Fort Worth, Texas, Oct. 22-24. Focusing on the theme “Jubilee — Restoration Through Gospel Mercy,” the conference will equip congregations for mercy ministry inside and outside the church by helping them develop an integrated approach to ministry.
Attendees will hear plenary speakers Mike Doyle, Victor Martinez, Greg Perry, and J.B. Watkins, and the conference offers more than 30 workshops that will help churches catch a vision for different ways to minister to their communities. MNA will also offer workshops on some of its mercy ministries such as Sheds of Hope and SecondCareer.
On Oct. 21, MNA will also host two preconference workshops: English as Second Language Training and MNA Special Needs Ministry.
This year’s conference chairman, Rick Lenz of MNA Disaster Response, said, “By highlighting many of the great mercy ministries in the [Dallas-Fort Worth] Metroplex as well as the MNA national ministries, we hope to facilitate churches and individuals to start mercy ministries and collaborate with existing, successful ministries.”
MNA has offered an annual mercy conference since 2001 and hopes to soon offer two conferences each year in different cities. This year’s conference will take place at Fort Worth Presbyterian Church, and the cost is $125. For more information or to register, visit www.pcamercyconference.com/2015.
