“From Watertown to the World: Maranatha Missions” is the theme of this year’s Missions Emphasis Week, Oct. 21 through 24. This will be more of an internal conference with our own Brian Trainer and Dr. Neal Cushman as the main speakers. Together they will be building a platform to communicate Maranatha’s mission, answering five important questions: who (the call), what (what missionaries do), why (motivating factors), how (strategies), and where (strategic countries). We are also planning to “Skype” in recent graduates who are involved in mission work. Two of these are graduates on deputation and two are graduates who are serving in restricted access nations.
The schedule for the week will be:
Monday – Brian Trainer
Tuesday – Neal Cushman
Wednesday – Neal Cushman
Thursday – Brian Trainer
The world is changing rapidly, and we need to adjust to these changes. The Missions Emphasis Week this year will publicize Maranatha’s mission as we go into the 21st century “To the Praise of His Glory.”
