Here I Am, Send my Sister
In this breakout session we will explore the great legacy of women who have gone before us in missions. We will hear from experts on the history of women in missions, as they teach us about the faithfulness of women throughout history to obey the Great Commission, and the faithfulness of God to walk with them.
Let Justice Roll
What does God say about justice? We know that God is a God of justice, but what place does Justice have in the story of God’s global purposes? How do we go in a way that pleases the heart of God towards justice for his people? Come learn from a worker with direct experience in doing Justice in the context of missions!
Are you curious about who/what GEN Z even is, and how to best mobilize this next generation? Come hear from authors and experts in this field who have done extensive research and ministry with this up and coming generation!
What does Christianity and ministry look like in the midst of persecution and suffering? Come and hear from a missionary who was on the ground in Afghanistan for 6 years.
Ask A Missionary Anything
What is it like raising a family overseas? What if your parents don’t want you to go? How do you learn a foreign culture? How can I become fluent in another language? Is language and culture even important to sharing the Gospel overseas? Can I use my degree overseas? Do you partner with existing churches when you get to the country? Ask all your pressing questions to current and veteran missionaries that have been all over the world.
Measure the Cost
You want to go overseas, but you have a massive pile of student loans. You care about the nations, but also love your $7 weekly latte. How do we reconcile God’s heart for the nations to know and worship him with the way that we use our financial resources? Learn from experts and organizations who work specifically with the body of Christ to teach them how to steward their finances well and alleviate the burden of debt for goers!
What to Know Before You Go
Do I even want to go, and if I want to go, should I? Do I need to go with an agency, and if so how should I choose one? Do I need to learn another language? How will I join a team or raise support? There are so many questions to ask when preparing to go to the nations, and in this breakout we hope to answer some of those questions!
Obstacles to Going
What are the current obstacles to you getting overseas? Is it learning a language, money, relationships, jobs, family, visas, or training? Learn how to overcome these obstacles from people who are already doing it!
We know that the glory of God going to the nations is a theme all throughout the Bible, but is it a theme all throughout history? How have people gone before us, and how can we learn from them? Hear from an expert in the history of missions, as we learn about missions movements from the past!

Do you want to influence the nations from your campus or your next door neighbor’s house? That is possible! God has brought the nations to our doorstep in international students and immigrants and we have the incredible opportunity to minister to people we see everyday! Come to this breakout to learn more about how to do this well.
Cross-Cultural Christian Conflict
Have you ever had a conflict with a spouse, peer, or boss that you didn’t know how to resolve? Multiply that x10 on the mission field! The #1 reason people leave the field is team conflict. Healthy conflict resolution is important for all believers and is something often overlooked in the missions world! Come learn with us about healthy conflict resolution and reconciliation among believers.
