Missions for the Next Generation
Missional leaders are invited to a discussion on how to engage next generation Christ followers in mission trips, and disciple them in their faith. Participants will engage in open dialogue rather than receiving a presentation. Participants will also be asked about their desire to participate in future “Missional Fellowships” for the purpose of discussing other topics and best practices.
Breakout Session #3, Saturday, 10:45 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Room 113
