July 24-26, 2014 • Trinity Presbyterian Church, Charlottesville, VA
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 (NRSV)
The Great Commission in Matthew’s gospel is Jesus’ mandate to his disciples “Go and make disciples of all nations.” The focus of the pronouncement has an emphasis upon “go” and “make.” As we engage in this Conference Assembly, we want to explore the way in which followers of Jesus make a difference by sharing their faith in local and global frontiers.
Participants will be challenged to share their faith in the local community at the grocery story, the local prison, and the athletic field. They will be challenged to consider the impact of sharing our faith in the global context by entering another culture building friendships. Stories from our local congregation and mission settings will be told to give witness to ways God is at work in making disciples as we go!
