Encounter World Outreach
Mission Encounter World Outreach is for all who are interested in missions (FPC members too!). This two day event is held in conjunction with the Gulf South Presbytery meeting at First Presbyterian Church Baton Rouge on April 27 and 28.
For those considering becoming a missionary, we’ll cover:
What is it like to be a missionary?
How do I know if God is calling me?
What are common obstacles to pursuing missions?
What are the options for going out with EPC World Outreach or being on a Home Team?
What are the options for going out with another agency?
For churches considering working more with EPC World Outreach, we’ll cover:
What is the mission focus of EPC World Outreach?
What is Engage2025 and ITEN?
What are Presbytery Home teams?
What can our church do with EPC World Outreach?
By the end of the Encounter, you will have a better understanding of EPC’s global mission focus.
The cost for this is $25. Meals are not included.
