The Burnham Center for Global Engagement presents our annual missions conference: The Conference on Global Engagement. Formerly “Missions Emphasis Week”, the conference has undergone several changes this year to better fit our new course schedules. This January 22-25 Calvary University will host 45 Mission representatives and practitioners from 23 different local and international mission agencies.
Our main speaker for the conference will be Dr. David Brown. “A former Philadelphia lawyer, David and his wife, Karin, have served as church-planters with Biblical Ministries Worldwide, focusing primarily on educating and mentoring national leaders. They worked for twelve years in Johannesburg, South Africa. David has also served as BMW’s Area Director for Africa and Europe. The Browns are returning to South Africa in 2018 to head up the 7 Rivers Outreach, involving a new seminary and biblical counseling center, church-planting, community development, and orphan care among the Zulu in South Africa.”
Dr. Brown will be speaking on the following topics:

We will also be taking special times to pray for our alumni missionaries located around the world and right here at home.
