Seminar on ‘The Historical Role of Blacks in Missions’

Brad Nelson

Pastor for Global Outreach Strategic Short Term Ministry

This Saturday morning, February 23, from 9am to Noon at the Downtown Campus, we will be discussing the historical role of African Americans in world missions. We’ve brought in Allan Wiltshire II from Atlanta to share his wisdom and perspective on this subject. Consider …

  • Who was the first U.S. missionary and where did he serve? If you thought it was Adoniram Judson, you would be wrong. It was a Black preacher from Georgia on his way to Jamaica.

  • Have you heard the story of the woman who sold herself so she could share the gospel of Christ in a different land?

  • Do you know how many U.S. missionaries are currently deployed around the world? Do you know how many of them are African American? If not, then you may want to attend the session with Allan Wiltshire.

By the time we are done, God may reveal to your heart how to unlock to the door to the next Golden Age of missions and high diversity. I hope you consider joining us Saturday morning!
