Confronting Fears in Mission Awareness Week 2017
This week Moore College is looking at the mission field from the perspective of fear and hearing how God calls his people to mission at home and abroad. After a morning of prayer on Monday 24th July, “Our fear” is the title of the opening Chapel service and is sure to provoke a response to the need for mission at this year’s event.
We aim for Moore College students to be particularly well qualified and suited to international mission work. Their desire to serve God, combined with their learning and training, could equal a potent combination for cross-cultural positions in Bible translation, theological education or at tertiary institutions around the world.
Mission Awareness Week will present the needs and opportunities for gospel ministry around the world, as a loving prompt to students to seriously consider the part they might play in taking the gospel to the ends of the world.
This year, special seminars will be run by a variety of guests with a wealth of missional experience. One of our speakers Richard Utber is the founder of Growing Global Churches which is a ministry helping grow the local church’s involvement in global mission. He will be speaking to fourth year students on ‘Why And How Your Church Must Be Involved In Global Mission’.
Speaking to our 1st year students will be our Bruce Hall on ‘Finding Your Place in God’s Mission’. Bruce is the Sydney Anglican Diocese’s cross-cultural ministry consultant and formerly the director of Evangelism and New Churches. He has previously taught at Moore College and served as a missionary in Pakistan.
