PREPARE: Increase your effectiveness for service in God’s global work and His heart for the world.

Develop skills for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with your local and global neighbors. You will consider the various ways different people groups best understand the gospel and the impact you can have on those who are not yet followers of Jesus. You will be challenged to share the gospel with others as you fulfill your calling as God’s servant.

 

Keynote Speaker: Kevin King

Kevin KingKevin King is the president of International Project, an organization focused on initiating church planting movements through diaspora unreached people groups in ethnic communities and on university campuses. In 2010 he launched the Equip program, which focuses on training cross-cultural church planters. Kevin’s vision is to see a movement of churches started among unreached people groups, starting with diaspora communities here and spreading to least evangelized countries. You can learn more about his ministry at internationalproject.org.

Three-Year Cycle

The educational objectives of World Reach Week run on a three-year cycle. All three years are designed to facilitate the development of important perspectives on the work of missions in the world today. This is year 2, “Prepare”.

Year 1 – DISCOVER: Increase your awareness and passion for God’s global work and His heart for the world.

During this year, you will expand your understanding of God’s calling upon a diverse worldwide church to carry out His work around the globe. You will be challenged to confront your assumptions about culture, the church, and missions. You will wrestle with your own perceptions and beliefs regarding what it means to love your global neighbors, and you will be inspired by the way God works through His people.

Year 2 – PREPARE: Increase your effectiveness for service in God’s global work and His heart for the world.

During this year, you will develop skills for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with your local and global neighbors. You will consider the various ways different people groups best understand the gospel and the impact you can have on those who are not yet followers of Jesus. You will be challenged to share the gospel with others as you fulfill your calling as God’s servant.

Year 3 – COMMIT: Increase your resolve to be part of God’s global work and His heart for the world.

During this year, you will experience the ways God is working through a variety of initiatives to build His church. You will grapple with how you can serve as God’s ambassador to the world. You will be challenged to pursue your role in God’s global work.
