Weekly Portraits of Calvary Life
The theme of Calvary’s Conference on Global Engagement (formerly called Missions Emphasis Week) was Priorities: Engaging Gospel-Deprived Places. Dr. David Brown from Biblical Ministries Worldwide was the main session speaker, and his topics included Marketplace Ministry, Gospel Wildfires, Dialogue with Doubt, and the Threefold Cord.
The schedule for the conference was a bit different this year with regular classes canceled on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Both days included two main sessions, prayer time, three seminar slots, and evening activities.
The entire Langmade Room was filled with displays from the various mission organizations and missionaries represented at the conference.
Also new this year was an art contest and auction where students submitted drawings, paintings, or photographs that fit the missions theme. The pieces were judged, given awards, and auctioned off to raise money for students going on summer missions trips.
Another highlight of the week was a song sung in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, and Swahili! As always this was a week of making or reestablishing connections with God’s servants around the globe and being challenged in our own commitment to spreading the Gospel.
