North Greenville University is holding its tenth annual Global Missions Conference this week. This is a week that has the potential to be one of the most pivotal experiences in NGU student’s lives.
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, “Give It All Away,” is a strong reminder that the call to follow Jesus means embracing self-denial and dying to our own pursuits and pleasures. It is a clear summons to recognize that there is a great cost that must be counted if we are going to be obedient to Jesus’ commission to carry the salvation message to the remotest and most difficult parts of our world!
Students will be encouraged to take advantage of everything that takes place during these days to do two important things: Seek God and His Word during this week; and seek out the unique place where He would have you join Him in what He is doing among the nations.
Keynote speaker for the week will be Dr. Danny Akin, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary President. Dr. Akin will be leading worship at regular chapel services and two bonus chapels in the evening.
Apart from the guest speaker, international meals will be served each evening in the dining hall. A coffee house and ice cream sundae nights will be offered as well as missionary speaking sessions in classes throughout the week. Also, the visiting missionaries and missions representatives will display their materials in the Global Village to give students an opportunity to talk with and receive more information from the missionaries 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 www.ngu.edu/live-chapel-webcast.php.
