In just a few short days, North Greenville University will be hosting its eleventh annual Global Missions Conference! This is a very special week that has proven to be very important in the lives of our students.
During these days of missions focus, students will have the opportunity to be exposed to what God is doing around the world to draw all nations and all peoples to Himself. Students will also be challenged to find that strategic place that God has for them in the great task of taking the gospel to those who have yet to hear and experience the difference that only Jesus Christ can make.
This year’s conference theme, “Follow You Into the World,” is designed to help our students gain a clear understanding of where and how God is moving in our world so that they can join Him in His mighty saving work! God is looking for laborers that He can send out into the spiritual harvest field, and this conference is meant to help students to see that they can become one of these laborers!
During this week, students will learn about the challenges missionaries go through on the mission field. They will also get a chance to meet the many missionaries that are here for the conference and perhaps encounter possibilities to serve in all the nations—from right here in South Carolina and even all the way across the world!
Students will be encouraged to take advantage of everything that takes place during these days. They will also be encouraged to seek God and His Word during this week and to seek out the place where He might have them join Him in what He is doing all across the world.
The keynote speaker for the week is Dr. J.D. Payne. Payne serves as the pastor for Church Multiplication with The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Alabama. Dr. Payne will be preaching at regular chapel services and at two bonus chapels in the evenings.
Apart from the guest speaker, international meals will be served each evening in the dining hall. A coffee house and an ice cream sundae night will be offered as well as missionary speaking sessions in classes throughout the week. Also, the visiting missionaries and mission representatives will display their materials in the Global Village to give students an opportunity to receive more information about working in the mission field.
NGU asks that you pray that this conference will be life-changing for many and that God will do amazing things on the campus during this time.
Chapel services will be Monday and Wednesday mornings at 10am and Monday and Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm. To view the worship services online visit live-chapel-webcast.php.
