IMB Sending Celebration announced

RICHMOND, VA – “Are you looking for ways to lead your church members to take their next step in God’s mission? Join us for the next IMB Sending Celebration on September 13 at 7:00 p.m. in Spilman Auditorium at Ridgecrest Conference Center in Ridgecrest, North Carolina.” This will be a time to celebrate the sending out of new missionaries who will share the Good News of Jesus around the world.

If you can’t attend in person, you are invited to a Livestream Sending Celebration to be broadcast live from Ridgecrest, N.C. Join in celebrating 51 new missionaries sent from Southern Baptist churches to the field. Register to watch the next Sending Celebration on your own, in a group or with your church family.

“At the celebration, we will worship with the new missionaries, hear stories of their call to missions, and pray together for their families as they take the gospel to unreached people and places around the world and are challenged with a message from David Platt to do your part in participating in God’s global mission. Immediately following the service, we will have a reception outside Spilman Auditorium. We anticipate a large crowd, so please carpool and arrive early. Overflow seating will be available.

“Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to gather with a coalition of churches to celebrate the sending out of missionaries. “Gather with a small group, your family or church to watch online with people all over the world and participate in worship, prayer and sending out missionaries.”

“We hope to see you either in person or online.”
