About the event
“Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who delight in them” Psalm 111:2
NextGen is an event to inspire and encourage you in your role in God’s plan to reach the nations. Gather online with the next generation of Christians from across the denominations to ignite a passion for world mission.
Maybe you have been on (or were planning to go on!) a short term missions trip and you are wondering what the next step might be for your involvement in the Great Commission. Or maybe you’ve never thought that God has a part for you to play in reaching the nations with the good news of Jesus. Either way, NextGen is for you!
This year, we haven’t been able to go overseas much. But we can still be involved in cross-cultural mission! At OMF we believe there are many ways of reaching the nations: Learn, Pray, Inspire, Go, Welcome, Send. At this event, we are going to be thinking about how learning is a way of doing mission – learning more of God, his heart for the world and all that he has been doing throughout history and to the end of time to gather a multitude from every tribe and tongue for his glory!
Get fired up by God’s word about his heart for the nations. Hear inspiring stories of people serving in the UK and abroad. Be equipped to play your part in God’s mission to reach the nations, across the street and across the world.
This event will take place on Zoom.
