World Missions Conference 2023
From March 2-5, we look forward to learning more about what God is doing around the globe through our mission partners.
We're excited to welcome our speaker for the weekend, Julius Kim, president of The Gospel Coalition. From women's events to our annual Friday night dinner to KidMission and opportunities to meet your mission partner, you won't want to miss all that this year's conference has to offer.
KidMission/Nursery (Pre-registration required): KidMission is a wonderful way to introduce your children to the needs and work of missionaries around the world. Beginning with a pizza supper on Friday night and then continuing Saturday morning after the pancake breakfast, KidMission is a great way for JK-5th grade children to learn about how God is building His church in a particular country. This year, kids will “travel the world” to Kyrgyzstan. They’ll learn about the country’s culture, play games, make crafts, and more. Nursery is available on Friday evening and Saturday morning by reservation only for ages 3 and under.
NOTE: Registration for the Thursday events, KidMission, and Nursery is closed. Tickets for Friday night's banquet and Saturday's breakfast are available through March 2 at 10:00pm.

Please prayerfully consider how you can contribute to the global advancement of the gospel and the work the Lord is doing around the world. Remember, at Second, the World Missions budget is separate from the general budget of the church, supported exclusively by your giving designated for world missions.
