The J Christy Wilson Jr. Center for World Missions offers a variety of events, including chapels, lunch forums, open house venues and lectures, which focus on various geographical areas, major religions, and types of global ministry opportunities. Throughout the year, we also host international guests, sponsor cross-cultural and service-learning experiences and have the opportunity to engage on a variety of topics related to the global mission of the church.
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.
Thursday, April 9, 2015 | 12:00pm with Tom & Donna Petter, Associate Professors of Old Testament
Drs Donna and Tom Petter served together in Youth With A Mission for eight years. Dr. Donna Petter did short-term mission work in the Philippines, Thailand and Hong Kong. Dr. Tom Petter's travels took him to East Africa (Tanzania and Kenya) and various parts of Western Europe. Together they established the first French-Speaking School of Biblical of Studies (SBS) in Togo, West Africa. They also pioneered the SBS in Honolulu, Hawaii. Their last assignment before coming to GCTS as students in 1993 was the oversight of the SBS in Kona, Hawaii (University of the Nations' main campus). They continue to be actively involved via teaching engagements and collaborative work with the School of Biblical Studies which is now offered in over 60 locations worldwide within the umbrella of the University of the Nations. They will be sharing: “Once a missionary always a missionary.”
