Missions Conference 2016

This year’s missions conference will be held on Nov. 4-5.   The theme this year is “Disciples, Not Converts” coming from the theme verse “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). 

All are welcome to attend the plenary sessions, workshops, drama and booth visiting times.  Please note that meals are only provided for NBC students and the missions reps registered for the weekend.  All other guests are asked to make other arrangements for meals – we apologize for the inconvenience.

Features

The keynote speaker this year is Bob Buck, Global Outreach Missionary as well as the Missionary in Residence at Millar College of the Bible.  Living Proof, NBC’s drama team, will be presenting the drama “To the Hilt” – the missionary biography story of Roger Youdarian and Jim Elliot, written by Kathy Covert.  As well there will be several workshops presented by the different missions reps and time to mingle and meet with the organizations attending the weekend.
