Local Church: Global Impact 
Workshops to Strengthen Your Church's Missions Program 

  • Tuesday, Mar 6, 2018 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM PST

In the twenty-first century, God's global mission faces various challenges. Throughout the world, thousands of people groups have little to no access of the gospel. False teachers threaten to lead many astray. Faithful pastors are unable to receive necessary training and resources. In addressing these issues, how is the church to respond? What steps must local churches take to develop and strengthen their missions programs for the sake of the nations?

To answer these questions, TMAI invites you to their 2018 conference “Local Church: Global Impact” on March 6th in Sun Valley, CA. This one-day event will provide practical hands on training and equipping to help your church with all aspects of its overseas missions efforts. The conference will consist of keynote sessions, workshops, and time of fellowship. Hear from trusted evangelical voices such as John MacArthur, Mark Tatlock, David Doran,  Alexander Strauch, and more.

  Four workshop tracks will be highlighted: 

Leading Your Missions Program as Pastor/Elder

  • Session #1: The Biblical Secret of Missions: Hidden in Plain View
  • Session #2: Leading with Focus and Effectiveness 
  • Session #3: Concepts for Whole Church Missions Involvement 

Shepherding Your Missionaries from Home

  • Session #1: Mobilizing & Mentoring for Missions: Things Your Church Needs to Know
  • Session #2: Peacemaking & Counseling 
  • Session #3:  Practically Loving Your Missionaries: Shepherding Them at Home and Abroad

  • Session #2: Church Planting & Strengthening 
  • Session #3: Pastoral Training 

Short-Term Missions with Long-Term Impact

  • Session #2: Planning and Training for Effective STM
  • Session #3: Q &A with Missionary Hosts 

Please note: Workshop session titles are subject to change. 

Since the focus of the conference is to strengthen the local church, please be sure to invite your pastors, church leaders, and missions committee members. Our desire is to equip all who serve God in the church as well as anyone who has a heart for missions.
