This is an article from the October-December 1984 issue: The US Center: Its Present and Its Future



Over 400 Executives Attend

Focusing on the theme "Biblical Balance on Modern Missions," conference speakers, discussion leaders, and delegates conferred on how to know the mind of Christ in missions strategy, personnel policy, administrative procedure, academic reflection, and new cooperative ventures. Evangelical mission leaders have come to rely on such conferences for new perspectives and for the practical assistance that comes from face to face consultation between peers.

Morning and evening plenary sessions were complemented by afternoon special interest sessions and numerous Informal huddles. Special concern was expressed for the U.S. Center for World Mission's financial needs, and the delegates contributed $3700 to the USCWM founding budget in an offering on the last evening of the conference.
