A day of “On Mission Training” conducted under the auspices of Grace Brethren International Missions will be held at the Grace Church of Orange, Calif., this Saturday, January 31, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All are welcome to participate.
The day will feature interactive networking among churches and learning from men and women who lead in missions, including Greg Barshaw, Jay Bell, Clay Hulett, Eric Smith, Ed Trenner, and John Ward. Members of local-church mission commissions and mission committees are especially encouraged to attend.
Participants will learn how to stimulate more interest in missions in their local churches, how to select and prepare a short-term mission team, how to be aware of interpersonal cross-cultural dynamics, how to reach internationals in the schools and neighborhoods, how to present missions to children and youth, and how to mentor people considering a career in missions.
The registration cost of $25, due on registration, covers the cost of syllabus, lunch, and training events. To register, or for more information, contact Ed Trenner at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (714) 402-7717.
