Short-Term Missions Boot Camp
Date: Tuesday, Aug 26, 2013
Location: Legacy 303 (view campus map)
Short-Term Missions Boot Camp is an intensive, two-hour, inside look at the strategy and motive of short-term missions (STMs). How might STMs create a lasting impact on target peoples? Are STMs worth the resources we invest in them? How might they truly benefit the remaining task of global evangelism? At STM Boot Camp, you will hear what Southern is doing to connect students of all ministry backgrounds and goals to God’s global mandate.
Experience God’s heart for the nations and your strategic role in short-term missions as a student, a devoted layperson, a faithful pastor, or a career missionary. Engage in missions and magnify his global renown!
Our field missionaries and faculty leaders will reveal all of our upcoming short-term missions opportunities for students, discussing needs, cultural issues, and strategies we are using in 2014 to take the gospel to the ends of the earth.
If you have ANY interest in going on, sending to, or praying for any of our international short-term missions, YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS!
Why Attend STM Boot Camp?
“Going…is a command, not a calling. What is a matter of calling is where we will go and how long we will stay. We will not all go to the same places, and we will not all stay the same length of time. But it is clearly the will of God for us to take the gospel to the nations.“- David Platt, Radical
We want every student, pastor, and layperson to feel the weight of God’s global mandate. Reaching the nations is not exclusively the job of career missionaries, but of Christians everywhere. Our role in global evangelization goes far beyond pulling out our checkbooks for visiting missionaries. How can you pray, send, mobilize, and go, taking the Gospel to the nations through short-term missions, and so join in completing the task remaining?
“This good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the world as a testimony to all nations. And then the end will come.” – Matthew 24:14
