Global Mission Conference


2017 Global Mission Conference

Sunday, March 5, through Wednesday, March 8

Come join us for Cedar Springs’ annual Global Mission Conference! Dozens of ministries and missionary guests will join us for four days as we explore what God is doing here in Knoxville, around our region, and across the world. Come to listen, learn, and discover ways that you can make a difference: Pray. Go. Serve. Give.

Sunday, March 5, morning & evening

Adrian De Visser is a Sri Lankan church planter who will talk about the Mandate for Mission that God gave the church in the book of Acts, and how He nudged the church to action when it failed to fulfill the mandate.

SUNDAY NIGHT we’ll also recognize Kentucky Mountain Mission, a long-time ministry partner of Cedar Springs that is celebrating 75 years of service.

MONDAY NIGHT we’ll hear from two Middle Eastern brothers as they share the amazing work God is doing among Muslims.

TUESDAY EVENING Jane Overstreet from Development Associates International will address how majority world societies are being transformed by Biblical leadership principles.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT we hope you’ll attend Missionfest, a night of dinner (two seatings) and mini-presentations from our conference guests.

In conjunction with our conference, Children's Ministries presents a special children's conference for elementary age children Sunday morning and evening, plus Monday and Tuesday nights. Nursery will provide care for infants and toddlers, Sunday through Wednesday evenings. Preschool children will learn about other cultures through crafts, stories, and a short talk by a missionary. Elementary-age children will be visited by missionaries and engage in hands-on activities.

Student ministries (middle and high school) will also be visited by area ministries during regular Sunday programming. Students will have opportunities to take part in other conference activities throughout the week.
