President Brown to Speak at World Mission Conference
Dr. Alistair Brown, President of Northern Seminary, will join Dr. Tony Campolo and Dr. Leslie Braxton at the 2012 World Mission Conference in Green Lake, Wisconsin. The conference is jointly sponsored by American Baptist International Ministries, the Amerian Baptist Home Mission Society, and the American Baptist Ministers Concil.
He will speak during the Call Retreat portion of the conference and his talk will be titled, Shaped by Commitment. In a recent newsletter, International Ministries write, “The 3-day Call Retreat (May 18-20) kicks off the International Ministries World Mission Conference 2012. The Call Retreat is a focused, individualized event during which participants dedicate themselves to discerning God’s call to Christian service and learning what steps are needed to respond to that call faithfully.”
The World Mission Conference will also feature 32 missionaries and 14 global Christian leaders who will participate in workshops and plenaries throughout the week (May 18 -24). For more information go to http://www.internationalministries.org/read/38513-may-2012-hear-the-call.
