Who's Who Missions Ice Cream Night

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!

Missions Emphasis Week

Tuesday - Thursday October 4-6  | Various times and locations

The word "sacrifice" is becoming less and less familiar to us, but the time may have come for our generation to be challenged and reminded to count the cost and bring the Gospel to places where following Jesus may require sacrifice. The GCTS community is invited to hear from mission workers who have followed Jesus in difficult parts of the world at great cost. They will be bringing us updates from the missions field as well as engaging in key issues in world evangelization. We hope this week of dedicated missions focus will inspire the community and renew our passions for God's church beyond geographical and cultural boundaries.

Tuesday and Wednesday day of Missions Emphasis Week, there will be a morning chapel session held in the Kaiser Chapel followed by a lunch forum in Alumni Hall. RSVP to missions@gcts.edu

Missions Fair will run throughout Tuesday and Wednesday, and Thursday lunch workshop sessions will feature different speakers on different topics. More information can be found here.

Workshops include:

#201: Kenneth Bae: North Korean Refugee Ministry

#202: Nana Yaw: Prayer as Spiritual Warfare for Leaders in Global Mission

#203: Karen & Stephen Lynip (SIL): Face the Lions

#204: Rob Antonucci (Frontiers): What is God doing in the Muslim/Crescent world?

RSVP for workshops here.

 

Life in Missions Lunch Conversation
