Welcome to our Missions Conference page for 2008. This is the heartbeat of our church, and I trust you will be blessed to hear these messages and know these people. And may we make our main thing truly be "keeping the main thing the main thing."                                Pastor Jerry

The Big Picture -8 min. video                           Missionary intros.

Keynote Speaker:


Sam and Blessy Thomas are our veteran national missionaries to India.  Sam was in Pastor Jerry's first conference at GBC in 2002.  When he spoke for the first time Bro. Jerry committed to bringing him back as the keynote speaker someday, as God permitted.  We're so glad that day has come!

All will be blessed by the cultural insights Sam will share about Hindus and Muslims, and a double blessing will come when you get to taste some of the authentic Indian dishes Blessy will make for the International Dinner on Monday!

Please prayerfully consider what God would have you to do for worldwide missions.

"You can pray,

 you can give,

 you can go!"

Here is the pledge card you will receive on Sunday.  Please notice there is no place for your name.  Your pledge is between you and God, and this card is for our budgeting purposes only, so we can know how many new missionaries we can add this year. 

We have promoted the dates of this conference for a year in advance.  This is the one time each year we ask our people to come out on a Monday and Tuesday.  Please make arrangements and don't miss the blessing!
