OA North America Summer Mission Conference After Conclusion of Retreat
Mission Conference will be held on August 13th, 2018 in Dover, New York. It is one day schedule the day after the three day East Coast Summer Retreat ends.
OA North America pastors and mission leaders were invited to join the meeting. This mission conference will allow for mission to look forward towards the General Assembly and the end of the year. The theme of the conference will be centered on Acts 20:28, "Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God."
During the conference, ministers will present reports about their mission field including evangelism and church growth. Additionally, several topics will be discussed including the development of education and mission resources. For education, OA North America will be engaging in educational workshops to continually support missionaries. Focusing towards the end of the year, missionaries will be encouraged to look towards planting additional 7 churches this year.
The mission headquarters hopes to encourage local churches to hold smaller retreats on a monthly basis to equip and encourage their members in the word of God. Such an opportunity will allow congregants to grow in their faith and fellowship together.
Within these various areas, the North America region will meet together and gather strength towards the General Assembly in October. Please pray that ministers will be encouraged during this meeting and be able to go forward powerfully towards the end of the year.
