Annual Great Commission Congress Begins at Asbury
November 03, 2014
WILMORE, Ky. — Asbury University is currently hosting its annual Great Commission Congress. This week-long event features Chapel services, evening worship times, panel discussions and an exposition of different mission opportunities. These services and events feature three speakers with experience in living lives of missional service both abroad and at home:, Dan Lewis, Executive Director of the River Foundation; Asbury University Vice President of Student Life Sarah Baldwin and Asbury University Assistant Professor of Business Management David Bosch. Each Great Commission Congress service will take time to dissect the idea of living missionally in day-to-day life by exploring the theme “Life as Mission as Life” alongside the verse Colossians 3:17.
