Global Mission Conference
May 29 – June 12
May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us – so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.
Our 2022 Global Mission Conference is an intentional and inspiring time of seeking and listening to how God is calling each of us to rise in faith and shine with Christ’s light in our world.
Join us as we come together in worship with our global church body and stand together in the power of prayer. We’ll be engaging in exciting opportunities to learn in community as we hear from special guest speakers – including our mission partners who are shining Christ’s light all around the world.
Come and be inspired and challenged for God’s global mission.
