West Coast Missions Forum

Our Southern Baptist Cooperative Program is a brilliant way to fund missions, but the sheer size of the IMB and NAMB can make it difficult to know how a local church can get more involved. To help overcome some of these barriers, Immanuel Baptist Highland will be hosting a Missions Forum in September. This three-day forum would be a wonderful opportunity to learn more and network together. Here's the full news release...

We gladly embrace The Great Commission, but it is a challenge! To find help in meeting this challenge please join us for Missions Forum 2010 West at Immanuel Baptist Church in Highland, CA on September 20 – 22, 2010.

What is Missions Forum? Is for missions leaders whatever their title may be; pastor, missions pastor, minister of missions, lay missions leader, etc. Topics vital to missions ministry will be addressed. It is a time to share common challenges, victories, and to learn from one another. Missions Forum is a cooperative effort of Immanuel Baptist Church, IMB, and other Southern Baptist Churches.

What are the basic aspects of the Forum?
  • Inspirational speakers: Dr. Rob Zinn, senior pastor at Immanuel and Peteris Sprogis, leader of the Baptist Union in Latvia
  • Breakout groups: Times of discussion in small groups where missions leaders can share experiences, knowledge and challenges on subjects vital to missions ministry. See a listing of topics on the registration page whose link is given below.
  • Networking: Ample time will be provided to talk one on one with other missions colleagues to learn and share.

  • Connecting with missionaries: For those looking for national and international partners, representatives from IMB and NAMB will be present to discuss partnering opportunities.

  • Ethnic specific sessions: Separate tracks for English, Spanish, and Korean/Asian based ministries
