A Missions Symposium
21 November 2020, Saturday 7.30pm on Zoom.
We often hear success stories of missions work. But what of the boo-boos and the un-glam stuff that happen behind the scenes?
For that, we present you Mistakes Missionaries Make (MMM), a missions symposium that uncovers the realities and challenges that missionaries and ministers face.
MMM is a radically different symposium that brings senior missionaries/ministers from diverse backgrounds and denominations to share candidly about their early missteps, mistakes and lessons learnt.
This open sharing will definitely inspire, bring greater understanding of missions; and more importantly – the lessons gleaned can help the next generation avoid the same pitfalls.
Counting The Cost
We invite you to join us in an upcoming session on 21 November, Saturday 7.30pm!
This will be a Zoom session with invited panelists Dr. Tan T’zu Jen, a medical missionary serving on the borders between Thailand and Myanmar, Mr. Willy Ong, Executive Director of OM Singapore, and Mr. Gerry Gan, a missionary of 8 years to Thailand with the Anglican Church.
This panel session will be moderated by Mr. Eugene Wee, Founder & Executive Director of RADION International.
