World Missions Conference

World Missions Conference 2017
February 24-26

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 we will welcome guest speaker Giotis Kantartzis, the pastor of the First Evangelical Church in Athens, Greece.

Conference Speakers

Giotis Kantartzis

Giotis is pastor of First Greek Evangelical Church in Athens, Greece. He has a vision for church planting throughout the city and is one of Second’s strategic partners.  His church supports a work among an area of Athens that has over 20 different immigrant groups living in a very small area.  He has begun an “Incubator” program to train young people for church planting and a mercy ministry for refugees coming to Greece. 

Jennifer McIntyre

Jennifer is a missionary with OMF Taiwan and EPC World Outreach. She and her husband, Thomas, serve as church planters in Zhongpu, an area that is less than 0.3% Christian. There, they reach out to young families through Bible studies and weekly worship at their Gospel Center. Jennifer is also a gifted writer. Her first book, “Dead Women Walking” was published in 2008 and was subsequently condensed as “Unbound” in 2012. Her new book, “Ping Ping and the Very Hairy, Slightly Scary Man" is a children’s book based on the true stories of several children living in Zhongpu. The McIntyres have two children, Ashlee and Tyler.  

2017 World Missions Annual Report


We live in a critical time for the body of Christ to articulate carefully how we engage our world and serve people from other nations, both at home and abroad. Our partners have been faithfully engaged in living out the Gospel in their countries in amazing and authentic ways.
