What’s Unique about the SEND North America Conference?

It’s is a two-day gathering of the Church in North America. The heart of this gathering is to see a movement of people from the Church living out the mission of God in their everyday lives, hence this year’s theme “EVERY LIFE ON MISSION MATTERS.” This mission is not for a select few; it is for business people, soccer moms, grandmothers, students, lawyers, pastors, baristas, contractors – it is for the entirety of the Church.

With over 7,000 already registered, the conference holds promise to be one of the largest missions gatherings in North American history. “Working together on this conference means churches and individuals will truly be able to come away with a complete vision and plan for their church’s mission activity in North America and around the globe,” asserted Kevin Ezell (NAMB President). “This kind of opportunity is unprecedented in Southern Baptist life and I am very excited about the potential.”

New IMB President, David Platt added, “I am exhilarated when I think about all the possibilities we have to mobilize Christians and equip churches for mission in North America and the nations together, and this conference is a reflection of that reality. I am eagerly looking forward to NAMB and IMB together hosting thousands of people in one place for God-glorifying, gospel-saturated worship all aimed at sending those people out from local churches on mission all over the world.” (For the full article on this go here
