It’s that time of year again! We are excited to kick off yet another Global Missions Week. This year the calendar is full, and the events seem endless- giving you plenty of opportunities to get involved! We will be joined by some of our missionaries that are scattered among the nations, both domestically and internationally. Our goal is to have you come beside them to pray for their mission, encourage their ministry and learn how to GO.
Global Missions Week will include everything from prayer and worship, to trying international dishes and going into the city to serve. Throughout the week we will have booths set up in the CGCS and encourage you to come on over and take advantage of this unique opportunity to spend quality time with men and women living out the Great Commission. We will be serving flavored popcorn to snack on as you visit.
Come enjoy a taco bar following chapel and meet our missionaries that will be on campus during GMW16!
Want to learn more about the North American mission field? Come join us for dinner while enjoying one on one conversations with NAMB missionaries visiting campus during GMW! There will also be a panel for questions about what it’s like to serve North America context.
Students stop in and discuss missions with our missionaries visiting campus for GMW! There will be time to mingle and drink coffee on us! Our visiting missionaries will be engaging in 10 minute GO Talks to provide a quick understanding of missions.
Taste of the Nations will be a fun time of food and fellowship! This event is always a crowd favorite- come over to the CGCS at 11 on Thursday following chapel and taste foods from around the world! Nick Ripkin will be signing books following chapel as well! (If you are interested in providing a dish: please contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
At 5 o’clock on Thursday we will be hosting the showing of Nik Ripkin’s new documentary based on his story and book ‘The Insanity of God’. Grab a bag of popcorn and join us at the CGCS to watch this incredible story in Eitle Auditorium!
