The goal of this night is to challenge us to think beyond our own borders, to be encouraged with what God is doing and to think about how we can support and be involved in God’s great Kingdom work, here and around the world. The evening is free but it might cost you your life, so be careful as you come!
The evening will include four seminars set up around the church:
• Strategic Intercession for Global Advance – Sunder Krishnan
• How Cross-Cultural Minstry with the Lisu Changes Lives & Why You Need It – Dean & Mari Clark
• HONDURAS: Reflections from the Field – Honduras Team
• Faith in the Public Life – Panel Discussion with: Louise Chatterton Luchuk (Higher Education),
Brian Paterson (Municipal Politics) & Jeff Stafford (Small Business)
Afterwards we will gather in the Upper Room for some awesome desserts and debriefing.
