To love God and people above all else

Global Missions Conference 2016

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand,
and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works
and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."  Matthew 5:14-16   


Our conference theme this year, Light in the Darkness, reflects the heart of our missions effort – to see the light of the gospel enter into the darkness of the still unreached people groups of the world. Our conference speaker, Fouad Masri, and all of our conference participants have many stories we are sure they would love to share related to their experiences of seeing the light of the gospel shine in the people groups they are serving. We have scheduled many events for you to attend and interact with them . . . and we are sure they would love an invitation to your home for dinner to share in greater detail!
