Missions Event in Iowa
Attention: Members of Lutheran Core in Iowa
This weekend, September 28-29, 2012 at Faith Lutheran Church of Spencer, IA, the Great Commission Lutherans of Northwest Iowa will host "A Light for All Peoples!" -- a Missions Conference aimed at equipping pastors and church leaders with the skills to ignite a passion within their congregations for sharing God's mission beyond the walls of the church building. Keynote speakers include: Rev. Dr. Gemechis Buba, Ethiopian Evangelist and NALC’s leader of World Mission, Rev. Ken Kimball, Dean of the Iowa Mission District of the NALC, and Rev. Mark Vander Tuig, Service Coordinator of LCMC.
A forum designed for congregational leaders will be held on Friday (beginning at 6 pm), featuring all three keynote speakers, offering pragmatic help to "lead congregations into mission." Saturday's programming will feature discussion on local and world missions with Rev. Dr. Gemechis Buba, as well as an open forum with all three keynote speakers.
Those attending the conference will also have an opportunity to learn more about several missions organizations through breakout sessions and exhibit tables. Sola Publishing will have a sales display, with several new products on the theme of evangelism and mission.
The cost of registration is $20.00 per person. To register for this event, please contact Faith Lutheran Church via email at email@example.com or call (712) 580-4316.
