Go therefore and make disciples of all nations. – Matthew 28:19

What is it?

Taking the Gospel to the Nations is a one-day conference organized by Acts 29 Northwest aimed to train and equip you in carrying out Jesus’ commission of making disciples of all nations.

Who is it for?

This conference is for pastors, church leaders, church members, aspiring missionaries, and those who desire to develop churches that plant churches on the frontier.

What topics will be covered?

Sessions will cover the biblical case for missions, the current state of missions, examples of missions done well, and a panel discussion on practical next steps.

We invite you to join us for a day of careful thought, practical advice, and Christ-exalting encouragement as we consider how to take the gospel to the nations. Jesus’ purposes are global in nature and we all play a role in fulfilling them.

SPEAKERS


Adam Sinnett | Downtown Cornerstone Church
Adam serves as the lead pastor of Downtown Cornerstone Church in Seattle, Washington. He is a Seattle native who gave his life to Jesus during his freshman year at the University of Washington. He went on to earn an MA in Theological Studies from Reformed Theological Seminary. In 2010, Adam and his wife, Jen, moved into the urban core of Seattle to plant Downtown Cornerstone, where they continue to live with their four children. He also serves as the western Washington Area Lead for Acts 29. Adam loves plumbing the depths of the unsearchable riches of Christ, exploring the nature of our union with him, and making disciples. Otherwise, he’s in the woods hiking with his family, on the court, or buried in a book.

Mike Griffis | Radius International, Global Serve International
Mike has lived and worked in many different countries around the world including Venezuela and Papua New Guinea. He is the author of Becoming Equipped to Communicate, a widely-used language learning resource for cross-cultural workers. Mike now works with Radius International as the instructor for Culture and Language Acquisition and Coordinator of Curriculum Development. He also serves as a US board member and an international director for Global Serve International. Mike is married to Michelle and they have four kids. Their latest adventure has been to learn Spanish as a family.

Greg A | Global Serve International *
Greg, his wife, and their two sons spent over ten years church planting among an unreached ethnic minority group in Siberia. They ended up planting churches in this group as well as among the deaf community in the same area. Eventually, they were able to train up several pastors to assume leadership of the churches they planted. They then moved to Southeast Asia and established teams to reach ethnic minority groups in the least reached countries of that region. Greg co-founded Global Serve International (GSI) to help other workers gain access to unreached groups in closed countries. He serves as the President of GSI and splits his time between equipping church planters in overseas fields and speaking at churches all over the US. *Picture and full name have been omitted for security reasons.
