NGU Goes Global

On Sept. 10-12, North Greenville University will hold its annual Global Impact Conference. This conference gives students the opportunity to learn about the efforts of Southern Baptist missionaries around the world.

The conference begins at 10 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 10 with the opening chapel service in Turner Chapel. Students, faculty and staff will hear from IMB missionaries about their experiences as the missionaries visit different classrooms around campus. Another chapel service will take place at 7 p.m. on Monday, followed by Coffee House.

On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Global Village will be open in the Todd Dining Hall from 8 a.m. to noon, and again from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Various missionaries will be present to share unique facts and experiences about the cultures they serve in. Attendees can experience food, games and music from around the world. Directly after the 7 p.m. chapel service, the Journeyman Seminar will take place in the Craft-Hemphill conference room.

This year, Dr. David Garrison will be the keynote speaker for the Global Impact Conference. Garrison serves as the executive director for Global Gates, a missions organization that seeks to reach the ends of the earth through global gateway cities. He also serves as church planting consultant in the Professional Services Group of MissioNexus, the largest network of evangelical missions in the world.

Garrison is also a literary editor whose most recent projects include: “The Camel, How Muslims Are Coming to Faith in Christ!,” “T4T: A Discipleship Re-Revolution” and “Any-3: Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime.” Garrison’s most recent book, “A Wind in the House of Islam,” surveys 45 Muslim movements to Christ – each with more than a thousand baptized converts – that are currently underway.­­

On Wednesday, Sept. 12, students can have breakfast with the missionaries in the dining hall from 7 a.m. until 7:50 a.m. This provides the opportunity for students to have a more personal, one-on-one conversation with the missionaries. The final chapel service will take place at 10 a.m., and the conference will close at 2 p.m.

This conference is open to the NGU family and to the local community.
