MISSIONS

GO FORTH 2018 | 21 - 23 JUNE | GO URBAN

This is a  Once-Every-Four-Years National Missions Conference for the churches in Singapore.

Why Go Urban? Why Urban Missions?

54% of the global population live in cities today! Millions travel to urban centres in search of a better life especially economically or through education. With an expected one billion people in Asia moving from rural to urban areas by the year 2030, the number of world city dwellers is expected to rise to 70% by 2050. This is indeed an urgent call to the church to serve and minister with the love of Christ in cities both locally and across the seas.

2018 GoForth National Missions Conference will look at an array of diverse strategies to empower individuals and churches to reach and transform cities with the love of Christ. Register today!
