Missions Conference Website Banner

Every man and woman is given the invitation to accept God’s offer of grace in Jesus Christ. When we accept grace by faith, we receive freedom. But that is not the end of our story – God wants to work through us to accomplish His mission in the world. He frees us so that we can be ‘activated’ and put ‘on mission’.

 

His mission for us: to make disciples (see Matthew 28:18-20). We are all called to that, but we have different gifts, passions and roles to see that mission through to completion.

We want to help you after you have found God and found community to live fully into your call and mission.
