From the Blog

From Despair to Hope

Did you help a refugee this year? Last year over one thousand Mission ConneXion attendees were encouraged and challenged by Grant Porter speaking on the Syrian refugee crisis. Several churches took his challenge to heart and many people volunteered time, gave away possessions and actually physically went to care for Syrian refugees fleeing to Lebanon. This is one of the things we love about Portland area churches!

camille-melki-bThis year we have the opportunity to hear from Camille Melki, CEO of Heart for Lebanon, a faith based organization in Lebanon.

Q & A with Joni Eareckson Tada: #whoisable

By Bill MacLeod

The theme for Mission ConneXion Northwest 2017 is “Who Is Able?” and our guest plenary speakers joni-eareckson-tadaunderstand what it means to feel inadequate as they considered the ministry God laid before them. One of our guest speakers is Joni Eareckson Tada, whose life almost came to an abrupt end as a result of a diving accident when she was a teenagerHer “disability” left her paralyzed from the neck down and changed the course of her life – but did not define who she was.  As we look toward January and MCNW17, we asked Joni to share what this theme means to her.

Killing Christians! – Who Is Able?

By Bill MacLeod, Executive Director

Killing Christians BookYou’d think it was yet another book from another popular “Killing…” series, but, “Killing Christians…Living the Faith Where it is Not Safe to Believe” is a book written by Tom Doyle, one of our plenary speakers for Mission ConneXion Northwest 2017.

Christian Persecution is at an all-time high globally, and in his book, Tom introduces us to some incredibly courageous persecuted believers who are leading a new Jesus movement around the world.  Killing Christians was written to tell stories of victory from the front lines of the war raging around Jesus’ church in places like Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, and Israel.
