Save October 17-19 to join mission leaders at Hope Church in Richfield, MN for the fifth Connecting Mission Leaders conference. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn, meet other mission-minded people, network with friends, and “fill your cup.”

Connecting Mission Leaders brings together Presbyterian mission leaders from ECO, EPC and PCUSA churches. This is a great opportunity for missiological reflection, worship and prayer, building relationships for new collaboration in mission, sharing best practices, and more. CML is an ideal gathering for local church mission leaders (staff, mission committee members, etc.) who are passionate about God’s mission in the world and who want to be more effective mission leaders and mission catalysts in their local church contexts.

Dr. Scott W. Sunquist, the next president of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, will be the keynote speaker at the Connecting Mission Leaders conference in October. Scott had served as dean of Fuller Seminary’s School of Intercultural Studies since 2012. Prior to that he spent 17 years at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, where he served as Professor of World Christianity. He was Lecturer in Church History, Ecumenics, and Asian Christianity for eight years at Trinity Theological College in Singapore. Scott is a prolific writer, a renowned missiologist and a historian who has focused on Asian Christianity.



Connecting Mission Leaders will have limited display space. The priority will be given to conference sponsors, church partners and non-profit ministries that focus on building up the church for God’s mission in the world. If you are interested in having a display, please send a completed form to lisa@theoutreachfoundation.org. The conference steering committee will select and invite interested exhibitors as space is available.
