36th Annual Global Missions Conference
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19)
Matthew 28:19 is one of the most important verses found in the Bible, because it is a directive from Jesus to His disciples to spread His teachings to all the nations of the world. This is the Great Commission, which is a tenet in Christianity emphasizing ministry, missionary work and evangelism. Jesus' directive was not limited to the disciples then, nor does it apply to only pastors and missionaries today. These words apply to all believers as we are called to be ambassadors who represent the Kingdom of God to the rest of the world.

October 17 | 9 a.m. | Lakeside Grill
