ONLIE E PERIENCE
Every year, we come together for our DNA Global Mission Conference – an intentional and inspiring time of coming before God in a posture of HERE I AM as we individually and collectively ask and listen, for how God is calling us to be a part of his global mission. While we are unable to gather in person for our conference this year, we are excited to invite you to DNA2020 – our very first online conference experience! Mission is our DNA. It is at the heart of everything we do together as a church body, and God has a role in his purpose for each and every one of us.
This mission is bigger than our careers, greater than our plans and extends beyond our circumstances. This mission is eternal. God is calling you. God is calling all of us – to see the world with his eyes, to live the truth we speak and to answer with our whole lives.

Speaker: Eugene Cho
9:15 AM, 11:30 AM & 2:00 PM
This is our final DNA Sunday and we’re going to be hearing from our guest speaker, Eugene Cho. He’s joining us via video from Seattle, Washington and he’s sharing a message of encouragement – God is not yet done and Jesus invites each and every one of us to be a part of his global mission. Are you ready to respond with “here I am”? Let's pray out this song together! Learn more about Eugene in our speaker section.
Our love for all peoples reflects God’s promise to bless all nations on earth and God’s mission to create for himself a people drawn from every tribe, language, nation and people.
The mission of God flows from the love of God. The mission of God’s people flows from our love for God and for all that God loves. World evangelization is the outflow of God’s love to us and through us.
The goal should be, by all available means and at the earliest possible time, that every person will have the opportunity to hear, to understand, and to receive the good news.
Why should anyone hear the gospel twice before everyone has heard it once?
The only generation that can reach this generation is our generation.
Together in God’s Global Mission:
We’re sharing the Love of Christ with compassion and justice in our city, nation and far beyond – in 55 countries around the world.
