Block A

10:30am ET

Session: Evaluating and Identifying Missions Partners

If churches want to put a greater focus on taking the gospel to the unreached, then naturally there will be some questions concerning our missions partners:

  • How do I identify faithful partners working among the unreached?
  • What does this mean for current partners who work among the reached?
  • How can my congregation support and care well for the people we support and send out?

These are the kinds of questions we’ll address in this session.

Session: Evaluate Your Church Budget

The fact that so little of the church’s resources are aimed at making disciples among the unreached should cause us to rethink our giving and our budgets. Participants in this session will learn practical first steps for evaluating their church budget so that they can focus more of their giving on peoples and places among the nations with little gospel access.

Session: Mission Fields to Mission Forces

The call of global mission to the unreached is not a US church call but a global church call. How can we humbly and effectively mobilize our current church mission partners to be forces to see the unreached, reached with the Gospel?
