Regional Mobilizers’ Workshops Off to a Good Start!

Ralph Winter addresses first Regional Mobilizers’ Workshop opening rally. March 25.

“Because our church is growing in awareness of missions, this workshop has been invaluable.”

“I most enjoyed meeting with others with similar vision and a desire to mobilize our churches.”

“I've known of most of these resources but it was wonderful to have them all presented together and in one book — I no longer feel fragmented!!”

“The binder is a must for all interested in missions!”

“I am excited to take this back to our church and begin implementing some of these ideas in our fellowship.”

“Do it again!”

This was the response of 120 pastors, missions committee members, and other activists who converged on the Center's Pasadena campus Friday evening, March 25 for the opening rally of the southern California regional mobilizers' workshop. Approximately 90 people stayed on all day Saturday, March 26 for the balance of the workshop, the first in a series of regional gatherings scheduled for major U.S. cities in 1988. (Boston—April 8—precedes the list below.)

Future workshops, like the Pasadena premiere, will feature addresses by Dr. Ralph Winter (General Director of the U.S. Center for World Mission), Malcolm Hunter (director of the Adopt-a-People program), and regional representatives of the Association of Church Missions Committees and the Association of Mission Services.

Additional time will be given to roundtable discussion of a variety of mobilization issues and programs, informal networking, and introduction to a wide range of materials and services useful to mission mobilizers.
