The Mission Team of KSBC is excited about what God is bringing about for our Missions Emphasis this year. While we hope that you will be inspired by the faith of missionaries and the faithfulness of God, we also hope you'll see how God welcomes all of us participants in his mission. And while we are excited about life-long commitments to overseas ministry, that is not the limit of what we hope God does.
In a word, we hope that God will impress each of us with these realities:
We invite you to come with expectant hearts, counting on God to surprise you with:
- God is a great and glorious God, at work in all the world. Really!
- There are more opportunities to plug into his mission--to fill the earth with his glory--than we may realize.
- These opportunities are closer than we think.
that fuels new desire to be a part of his work…
because his invitation to join him is too good to resist.
Take a look at the schedule below. We’ll be blessed to have some of our missionary partners with us in person, we’ll learn about the ways God invites each of us to be a bigger part of his missionary work, we’ll hear from some of our own members who have explored alternative ways to serve overseas, we’ll talk about how God is shaping the “missions DNA” of Kossuth, and more.
Also don’t miss the chance to have lunch with our partners Randy and Cindy Richner; sign up in your Connection Group or online
if you’re interested!
