2015 World Missions Conference

February 27 - March 1

Our World Missions Conference is a time to honor and get to know our missionaries who are working to expand God's Kingdom across the world. It is also a time in which to learn from our guest speakers, who are brought in from around the world to share with us their experiences.

This year our conference theme is “Every Tribe, Language, People & Nation,” based on Revelation 5:9. We will welcome Dr. Peter Kuzmic, the Professor of World Missions and European Studies at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, as our keynote speaker. Dr. Kuzmic is considered the foremost evangelical scholar in Eastern Europe; originally from Slovenia, he will offer a unique perspective on God’s work around the world.

A pre-conference luncheon for women will be on Thursday, February 26, and the conference will continue through Sunday, March 1.

Badge World Missions Annual ReportAbout World Missions at Second

This is a very exciting time to be involved in world missions! Urbanization and globalization have opened doors to communicating the Gospel and sharing resources unlike any time in our history. While much of this change can be mind-boggling, it ultimately represents a strategic time to be fully engaged in world missions.  

Here at Second, our goals are to identify strategic fields and ministries and to partner with those involved in advancing the Gospel in those areas. We seek to call, train, and send missionaries to the field, as well as partner with national and international workers involved in that same endeavor.   

Below are the seven strategic regions of the world in which we focus these efforts: 

  • Africa
  • Europe
  • Middle East
  • Central and South Asia
  • East Asia
  • Southeast Asia
  • Central and South America

Pray for Our Missionaries

On Mission Sunday you will receive our prayer book, which this year is formatted this year to take us around the world in 80 days of prayer. It still lists our missionaries, with their background and their prayer requests, but there is a calendar in the back to help you keep track of your progress in your trip around the world. We hope you will consider accepting this challenge and pledging to pray for your missionaries for the next 80, 180, or 365 days.

You can register for online for missionary prayer requests at www.2pc.org/mailsettings. You can even get a daily or weekly prayer reminder sent straight to your cell phone. We would love for you to join our “Read-Pray-Delete” movement by promising to read about a missionary, pray for them, and then delete the message, leaving room for the next day’s prayer update.
