Missions Fellowship

Tuesday April 12  |  6:30 - 8 pm  |  Wilson House

Would you like to join the GCTS community of missionaries? There are many on our campus who desire to connect regularly with others who have the passion for missions and/or have missions experience. There are concerns, questions, and challenges that can be uniquely addressed and understood by others who have this heart and/or have been on the field; we want to help foster such an environment of relationship building and support. Anyone is welcome to join us for a night of sharing, discussion, prayer and fellowship!
