Continual education for the CCV Missions Team
“He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Luke 10:2”
This November the CCV missions team was able to attend The International Conference on Missions in the beautiful city of Lexington, Kentucky. The conference exists to encourage, equip and enlist workers for the harvest. It is during this conference that missionaries, many who are our partners, are able to come to one place to be encouraged in their Kingdom work. The theme of conference was ‘Mobilize, Disciples making Disciples”. Throughout the convention there are multiple classes offered on many different topics including “How can I serve cross culturally? or Addressing the Human Trafficking issue”. Throughout each day there are class sessions, open exhibits where mission organizations can share what they are doing, then main sessions in which the entire conference comes together in worship and a message. This year’s worship was led by one of CCV’s worship leaders, The Jordan Howerton Band and it was amazing to hear people who would not be connected otherwise coming together to worship. The conference featured many keynote speakers in which they shared their heart for the part of the world in which they are serving. CCV Missions was able to encourage many of our own mission partners that we often do not get to spend time with. ICOM is fulfilling their mission of encouraging, equipping and enlisting workers for the Harvest.
