Morning Session (9am -1 2:30pm): Practical Skills for Mobilizing
There are six ways of missions involvement: go, send, pray, welcome, learn and mobilize. This event will give people a Biblical foundation for mobilization, an opportunity to reflect on their own missions journey and learn some practical skills for mobilizing.
Lunch (12:30 – 1:30pm)
Afternoon Session (1:30 – 4pm): Asian American Challenges
While there is great missions interest within the Asian American community, often times we face challenges that our non-Asian American colleagues do not understand. Join us in identifying some of those barriers to long-term missionary service and ways to successfully surmount them.
