A 2015 Venue and Opportunities to Sparkle!

 Messages From Bill

SunsetPresbBuilding1Without a PA system, evangelist will have no one to respond to his invitation for no one will hear! And without a 2015 Venue to accommodate 125 workshops, 80 exhibitors and 1500 in an auditorium…there can be no Mission ConneXion Northwest…

 

SunsetPresbLogoThank You Sunset Presbyterian Church, (http://www.sunsetpres.org) for welcoming us back where we have not been since 2011! The Mission ConneXion Board and I have been in talking with them and we were excited to hear that their Facilities’ Staff wanted to work with us again, and so we are only too thrilled to accept their invitation!SunsetPresbStaffJD Payne, Steve Richardson, Don Richardson, Ramesh RichardAppropriately, our theme for this coming January 16-17 will be “Barriers and Breakthroughs” taken from 2 Corinthians 4:6 “For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light sparkle in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ”. More will come regarding our plenary speakers in coming months, but suffice it to say that JD Payne, David Platt’s (“Radical” author) Pastor for Church Multiplication at The Church at Brook Hills and our Leadership ConneXion presenter…”Peace Child” author and missionary to the Sawi People, Don Richardson…his son, Steve Richardson, the President of Pioneers…and Ramesh Richard, changing the way one billion people think and hear about the Lord Jesus Christ…will be used of God to bring light into our hearts!

Speaking of light in darkness, with so much going on in the world lately, I listed just a few friends I work closely with through Mission ConneXion, and was amazed to consider how near to world events we are:

  • Scott – with Workshops – just returned from Kenya where they are monitoring Ebola cases carefully …
  • S&M & family, from Northern Iraq, returned to to visit their families at the height of recent turmoil…
  • Jill, our MC bookkeeper en route to Ukraine on Kingdom-related work…and the list could go on!

This month consider these other “MC Champions” who let their light shine because the light of Christ is shining through them. Our matching gift opportunity is yielding close to double this summer, but there’s still time to participate… Want to learn how to raise financial support for your ministry?
