“You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” — 1 Peter 2:9-10
After much prayer, preparation and planning, we are excited to announce the 2016 Multi-National Mission and Leadership Conference taking place in Columbus, Ohio, on April 11-13. This two-and-a-half-day training conference for Multi-National leaders will provide worship, teaching, training, discussion, and prayer centered on the theme “Ummata,” the Oromo word for “community.”
For those whose native language is not Oromo, the first time the word is heard, it sounds like “you matter.” Unfortunately, the default position in the United States is often “I matter,” while most other world cultures emphasize making sure others know “you matter.” This impactful training event will provide practical tools in key focus areas of identity, leadership, transition, finance and family through the lens of what it means to truly be the Body of Christ, God’s chosen people.
