by Jennifer Taggart, Public Relations Writer

Each January, Cedarville University hosts an annual mission’s conference that exposes the community, students, faculty and staff to the needs around the world. This year’s conference will be held on January 6-8, 2015. J.D. Greear, senior pastor of the Summit Church of Durham, North Carolina is the keynote speaker.

The conference includes chapel sessions at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. each day as well as opportunities to interact with missionaries during an ice cream social on Tuesday night and coffee house on Wednesday night. There will also be sessions on topics such as medical missions and technology in missions.

Greear is the author of “GOSPEL: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary,” “Stop Asking Jesus into Your Heart: How to Know You are Saved” and “Breaking the Islam Code.” He has worked with Muslims in Indonesia for two years. The Summit Church has grown from 300 to 8,000 members under Grear’s leadership and has a goal of planting 1,000 new churches by 2050.
The missions conference is free and open to the public. You can view the chapel sessions of the conference online on Cedarville’s web stream.  To order a CD, DVD, or MP3 download of a chapel session, visit the Cedarville University Media Store.
