Over 1,100 Great Commission influencers representing 377 local churches, mission organizations, educational institutions and businesses, gathered in Dallas, September 19-21, for STAND, the 2013 Mission Leaders Conference. This record attendance is more than double the largest event in our history. But we know numbers are merely placeholders for names. And every name represents a unique story. We are humbled and honored God allowed us to invest in the lives of this many leaders engaged in a diversity of Great Commission initiatives.
This month’s vlog is a highlight reel of several General Sessions from STAND with clips from messages by Francis Chan, David Platt and Ruth Haley Barton. If you were with us in Dallas you remember how God used each of these sessions to inspire and challenge. If you were unable to attend you’ll get a window into what we experienced together.
The MP3 audio downloads from the General Sessions, each affinity track (not including EMS) and the preconference lab are available in our online store.
Make plans now to join us in Atlanta, September 25-27, 2014 for OPEN, the 2014 Mission Leaders Conference. We will explore how God is opening doors for mission through the movement of peoples globally, looking through four lenses: immigration/migration, urbanization, exploitation and globalization.
A streamlined version of last month’s vlog, Leveraging Events for Maximum Learning, is now available in the archives without the What’s Happening at Missio Nexus intro or the closing comments.
