I am writing this blog post coming fresh from a message by Clint Morgan, general director of Free Will Baptist International Missions, at the semi-annual missions conference on the campus of Welch College. He gave a stirring presentation about the mission of God in the world—including both the need of the world and the progress of the gospel in the world.
His presentation has made me even more committed to standing with our International Missions department in their Thirty Days of Prayer and Fasting during the month of October. We need a renewed commitment to our role as Free Will Baptists in the Missio Dei—the mission of God in the world—that is the theme of our conference.
The Missio Dei extends from our own spheres of influence, to the many individuals and families who have come to our communities from overseas, from church planting in the North American context, to evangelism and church planting in global cross-cultural settings.
It is exciting to see our students at Welch College catch a fresh vision for missions from denominational mission leaders such as Clint Morgan and Free Will Baptist North American Ministries’ Brad Ransom. Please pray with me for our students, that they would seek God’s guidance in discovering their own role in the Missio Dei, whether in going or enabling others to go. And stand with me in committing to prayer and fasting for Free Will Baptist International Missions during the month of October.
