Unshakable Pursuit: 60th anniversary of Michigan WMU celebrating Michigan missionaries
Chasing the God Who Chases Us: Unshakable Pursuit
“There’s a God pursuing us in love, tapping our shoulders, and telling us life will only find its rhythm when we chase after Him with everything we’ve got. There’s a world walking the paths God has orchestrated, just waiting for someone to be fully engaged in His story and share it with them.” (Grace Thornton, Unshakable Pursuit)
You are invited to join the pursuit, and if you chose to connect, your mission will never be the same! Celebrate with us at the 60th meeting of the Michigan Women’s Missionary Union. A Missions Celebration of all that God has done and will continue to do through the churches of our Baptist State Convention of Michigan.
Our time of celebration will feature missionaries from; the International Mission Board (IMB), North American Mission Board (NAMB), and our Michigan Baptist Staff.

Does your church have a ministry project, missionary or mission theme it supports or wants to support? Michigan WMU recognizes that churches in our Baptist State Convention have a heart for missions. We have prepared a one-day mission celebration that invites and will highlight missions, missionaries, and ministries in Michigan and around the world. We have over 40 missionaries and ministries who will be available to share information with you in the Display Center. If you are interested in having a table to share about your church plant, ministry or missions project, please contact email@example.com.
Your participation is sure to…
inspire and energize your church members to get involved in mission both locally and globally.
emphasize the foundation of Southern Baptist Cooperative Program of missions and evangelism.
educate leaders about practical strategies to lead their churches in mission work that empowers, celebrates and shares God's love with all.
invite the your church to be on mission through prayerful and pledged financial support.
What is planned?
You can engage actively with state and global missionaries, hear from national and local guest speakers, worship time, and personally connect with missionaries around the world. You will develop partnerships and gather information about opportunities to be involved in local missions. We will celebrate mission work already underway and present a vision for what could happen by coming together as the church with the common purpose of reaching Michigan for Christ.
Why Partner Together?
Experiencing missions together, Multiplies “The Power of One”.
So What Do I Do Now?
Pray and ask God if this is a celebration you should attend? Pray and ask God if this is an opportunity you should encourage other to attend?
The “pursuit” is on…now that you know, standing still is no longer an option!
