The Reach Conference
The Reach Conference
Friday, May 20 - Sunday, May 22
Cedar Fork Baptist
Every Sunday at Waypoint Church we say, “Reach Durham. Reach the Nations.” Why? Because we believe that by reaching the diverse population of Durham, we are reaching the nations of the world. We also believe that by reaching these nations in Durham, God will call some of you to the nations in other parts of the world. At Waypoint Church, every member is a missionary.
In the past, to be a missionary, it was believed you signed up for an organization to send you out, that organization trained you, and you were given a job titled “Missionary.” At Waypoint, we believe the Bible teaches that we are all missionaries, receiving that title at our new birth to spread the Good News of Jesus to all nations. At Waypoint Church, we are going to do the training and the sending!
This year, we will be launching new training initiatives. They have already begun at our Theological Training Institute. Every month in 2016, we will be taking Waypoint deeper into God’s Word and theology. Missionaries need this training for reaching those around them, at home, in their neighborhoods, at work, and at the places they frequent. We believe in making disciples that make disciples.
The Reach Conference is a three day training event, diving into practical methods for reaching the world from Durham and beyond. We will be rolling out our new strategy for sending individuals and families to international missions, through partnering with the International Mission Board. We will have specialized training in marketplace and community evangelism, and we will look deeply into God’s Word to see how He is calling His church to go forth and expand His Kingdom. Amid all of this, we will be having church-wide prayer moments, seeking where God is calling us as a church in the world-wide movement of His Kingdom.
Don’t miss this important unveiling of Waypoint’s church-wide mission strategy and missionary training!
