Marion, Indiana-based World Gospel Mission celebrates 100 years of global missions with a four-day international-themed event at nearby Indiana Wesleyan University.
World Gospel Mission's International Celebration of Missions kicks off Thursday and will feature missionaries, international guests, and supporters. Attendees will be challenged to continue the missions work that was started a century ago. In 1910, two missionary couples began working as missionaries in China and their ministry continued until the 1940s. Representatives from China, who are the fruit of those early missionaries, will be present at the celebration.
“Even as we celebrate what God has done through World Gospel Mission over the last 100 years, we can't for a moment take our eyes off of what lies ahead,” said World Gopsel President Hubert Harriman. “We must equip the men and women from our fields who have answered the call to missions.”
“I am extremely humbled by what God has done through World Gospel Mission. Great challenges lie ahead for WGM and for all global missions. But we hope and pray God will continue to lead us, just as He did in 1910.”
The event will be used to raise funds to help current international missionaries from Africa and Latin America. To learn more about the WGM celebration, which is open to the public, click here.
