Window into World Mission
Hope to see you at Big Tent!
It’s not too early to make your plans to attend the World Mission Partner Conference at Big Tent 2013, , in Louisville, Kentucky. The Big Tent combines ten national mission-oriented conferences under one roof, gathering thousands of Presbyterian pastors, elders, and other church leaders to study, share, worship, and fellowship, and to build up the body of Christ. At Big Tent, you can learn how Presbyterians engage in global mission for collective impact and discover the tools that will help your congregation address poverty, do evangelism, and engage in reconciliation. You will discover strategies to advocate for, empower, and partner with sisters and brothers throughout the denomination and around the world through mission.
The Power of We: Collective Impact in God’s Mission
This year’s theme reminds us that although we might be limited in our reach when we try to do mission alone, together we have a collective impact that cannot be shaken. Whether your group is sophisticated or inexperienced in global mission, you will be informed by others and can share your own tips to success or lessons learned. You will make surprising and useful connections to other mission leaders nationally and throughout the world. And, by the end of this intense weekend, you will leave Big Tent energized and informed, and ready to bring World Mission home to your congregation.

Also, don’t miss the World Mission pre-conference () featuring key note speaker Dr. Robert Lupton, author of Toxic Charity: How Churches and Charities Hurt Those They Help (And How to Reverse It). Lupton’s presentation will challenge how you think about Mission and will equip you for more effective ministry. A separate $35 charge, including lunch, supports this program; register as part of your Big Tent registration.
