Missions Conference 2016

August 20 2016
August 20 2016

We are pleased to introduce the 2016 Faith Missions Conference.

The conference theme is Overcoming by the Power of the Gospel, and we are honored to have with us missionaries committed to promoting gospel-centered ministry sustained by indigenous Christians.

James and Jackie Gildard are church planters joining us from France, Julian Zugg is involved in worldwide pastoral training, and Blake Purcell directs several church plants and ministries in Russia (East and West).

These missionaries are uniquely qualified as long-term missionaries serving in very difficult places to proclaim Jesus. They will remind us of the power of the gospel, a gospel of grace that is not only the power of God to overcome unbelief in the world, but also the power of God to comfort and sanctify the followers of Jesus, in any and all circumstances.

Please join us to be refreshed by what God has taught James and Jackie, Julian, and Blake, through their labors for the glory of Christ.
