Sessions & Schedule
Wednesday, June 28, 2pm Who Really is My Neighbor? ~ Stories of Love around the World
Hear stories that will inspire you to engage in mission beginning at your doorstep and extending out to the world. From engaging international students and those struggling with addiction and poverty in the U.S. to sending short-term and long-term missionaries to take the Gospel farther afield, these speakers will help you envision who your neighbors might be and how you can share the love of Jesus with them!

Wednesday, June 28, 4pm Do Something: Practical Steps to Doing Mission on Our Doorstep
Start applying now what you are hearing by taking steps to cross cultures nearby, reach out to those from other religious, socio-economic and racial/ethnic backgrounds, involve young people, and minister to those dealing with life issues. You’ll hear about outreach ideas and practical ways to connect with those still far from Christ that will get you out of the pew and into your community!

Thursday, June 29, 2pm Ed Stetzer: “Gospel Multiplication & Roland Allen” in Edman Chapel
We encourage all of our sub-conference attendees to attend this Always Forward session with plenary speaker Ed Stetzer, Executive Director of the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton College. He will be drawing from the missiology of Roland Allen, a British Anglican missionary who served in China in the early 1900s. Allen became an early advocate of establishing churches which from the beginning would be self-supporting, self-propagating, and self-governing, adapted to local conditions and not merely imitations of Western Christianity. Ed Stetzer helps us to think “missionally!”
Thursday, June 29, 4pm Growing Missional Parishes
Whether you are the only “mission-minded” person in your parish or your parish is on fire for missions, come and discover new resources that will help your church grow AND equip more people to go to the mission field, domestically and internationally. You’ll leave knowing how to take the next step towards a deeper missional DNA in your congregational context.
