Upcoming Events

Life in Missions Lunch Conversation

Selected Dates | Lunch Hour | Pierce Great Hall

Intimate without intimidating - small enough just for you to ask any questions about life, ministry and the world.  Ongoing this year, Wilson Center will be hosting casual lunch conversations with special guests who have traveled and worked extensively in a cross-cultural setting.  Grab your lunch, look for our sign at the table in the Pierce Great Hall, sit down and join us. Come and go as you need.


Spring Missions Open House: Europe Night

Friday, April 10, 2015  |  7 - 9 pm  |  Wilson House

What’s better than a backpacking trip through Europe? Let our Gordon-Conwell Europeans bring you on the journey through their homelands…and they may surprise you with some goodies and a cup of English tea, or an Italian espresso on the way.

Don’t miss the train when it takes off from the Wilson House!
