Missions Festival 2017

God is scattering people for His purposes. Unengaged people groups have moved from restricted access countries to places where they can be reached with the hope of the Gospel. God’s inviting us to be aware, to learn, to pray and engage in the lives of Muslim’s and others around the world and in our own city.
