By now I hope you have received information about (and registered for) the International Conference on Missions, being held November 15-18 at the Indianapolis Convention Center.
What began as a gathering of missionaries a day prior to the North American Christian Convention, turned into its own event in 1954. From the early days when it was known as the National Missionary Convention it has grown to the current International Conference on Missions, which draws thousands of local church members who have a heart for missions. This year’s event will remain true to its commitment of globally advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ through missions, as it challenges each of us to better understand what it means to be radical again.
For the 2012 ICOM TCM has been given the great honor of being named the highlighted mission. Plans are underway to share the TCM Experience with all who attend.
As we begin the process of creating the TCM Experience there are a few items we are searching for. Do you or someone you know have access to:
- A large number of cubicle wall sections to be used to divide the room into significant eras of TCM’s history
- An old tabletop radio
- A large number of tall silk plants
Did you or someone you know serve as a summer intern at Haus Edelweiss in the 1970s or 1980s?
Are you planning to attend ICOM? Would you like to give a few hours of your time to volunteer in the TCM Experience?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and share in the celebration of the TCM Experience!
As you are going about your days this week and next be in prayer for those who are attending Session 4 at Haus Edelweiss. Students and translators representing seven nations and STWs from five churches in the United States are there studying and serving. Courses this Session include Research Methods taught by Katharina Penner, Groups Ministry taught by Teresa Welch, Christian Counseling, taught by Nolan Thomas and New Testament Eschatology taught by Fred Hansen. May our prayers be a sweet aroma to our God!
Blessings on your journey,
Director of Global Outreach
