Cedarville, OhioWith topics such as international Christian radio, medical missions, and ministries to Asia and Latin America, the annual Cedarville University Missions Conference will offer a look at missions work on January 11-13. Approximately 80 missionaries, representing 35 international ministries, will set up displays in the Dixon Ministry Center for interaction with students and guests during the conference week. The missionaries will lead more than 30 special seminars on a variety of missions-related topics.
"The goal of the Missions Conference is to remind us of needs of the world and how we may fit in the solution," explained Brian Nester, director of Cedarville`s Missions Involvement Services. "We anticipate great things again this year."
At 10 a.m. each morning, attendees will hear from Tania Rich of New Tribes Mission (Tuesday, Jan. 11); Grady Toland of Evangelical Christian School in Memphis, Tenn. (Wednesday, Jan. 12); and Gary Frost of the Southern Baptist Convention in New York City (Thursday, Jan. 13). At 7 p.m. each night, Dr. Ron Cline will give a keynote address.
Cline is chairman of the board of HCJB World Radio, an international missionary organization which provides mass media, healthcare, and education services to more than 120 countries. An ordained minister and a licensed marriage, family, and child counselor, Cline has taught around the world and has pastored a church in Quito, Ecuador. He served as HCJB World Radio`s president from 1981 until 2001.
In 1996, Cline began hosting the one-minute radio program Beyond the Call, which airs in more than 1,000 communities in North America (including the Miami Valley`s own CDR Radio, The PATH® 90.3 FM, weekdays at 1:55 p.m.). His book, Feel the Zeal, shares true stories of how ordinary people can do extraordinary things for God.
