Missions Conference Update

January 21, 2015

The spring semester here at Cedarville University is off to an exciting start. For some time it has been the culture at Cedarville to begin the spring semester with the missions conference. This first week of chapels and evening conference sessions is a strategic time to focus our students' attention on God's desire in the pages of Scripture to redeem worshippers for His glory from every people-group on earth through the proclamation of the Gospel. This year our students heard biblical challenges from a variety of missionaries and missions mobilizers. 

Ken Rudolph, Missions Mobilizer with the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (ABWE), began the conference with a challenge for our desires to reflect God's desires for the nations.

J.D. Greear, Pastor of The Summit Church, served as the keynote speaker for this year’s conference. J.D. delivered three messages encouraging students to consider how their life pursuits may be used to accomplish God's mission of reaching those who do not have a relationship with Christ at this important time in life.

Tom Wolf, Church Planter in South Africa with ABWE, delivered a call from Genesis 12 for students to live on mission for God wherever He may lead in their career pursuits.

Rob Turner, Pastor of Apex Community Church and Director of Cedarville's Master of Ministry program, concluded the conference with a plea to lay aside the things in our lives that hinder us from being involved in God's mission to reach the lost.

Rob concluded the conference with an invitation for our students to repent from sin and commit to living on mission and God worked in many lives during this time. I encourage you to watch the highlight video below to get a sense for what God is doing here at Cedarville
