6:00 - 7:15 PM

  • Technology & Missions - Panel Discussion
    : HHH 104
    Description: I’m an Engineering major, what options are there for me beyond working for an Engineer Company? Is there such a thing as “desk job” in missions? Will I be able to do the things I’ve been trained to do as an EE, ME, CE, or MJE. I’m a Computer Science major – what can I do to help the spread of the Gospel.

    Panel Members: Representatives from Galcom International, Indigitous, and SonSet

  • Compelled to Help In the Midst of Chaos - Panel Discussion
    Location:  HHH 106
    Description: How do we help in the midst of crisis? What about political unrest? Is there a place for the Gospel, when basic needs are going unmet or when brother is fight against brother?

    Panel Members:


  • Convinced This Is the Best Life For Me - Panel Discussion
    Location: HHH 131
    What is like living as a missionary? How do I survive in a culture not my own? Will I be able to afford nice things? Can kids thrive as missionary kids?

    Panel Members: TBA


  • Committed to the Unreached Amongst Us - Panel Discussion
    :  HHH 139
    Description:  Did you know that there are large groups of unreached people groups living right here – some of them even next door. We often hear about those living in the 1040 Window who have not heard to Good News. But what about those who live right here but fall into “non-traditional” people groups and are also unreached?

    Panel Members: Representatives from Beloved & Beyond, Signs of Love, and TBA


7:30 - 8:45 PM

  • Aviation Ministry - Panel Discussion
    Location:  HHH 104
    Description: What opportunities are available for those who want to use their aviation training in missions? Is the only way to be in aviation missions to be pilot? 

    Panel Members: Representatives from JAARS, Kingdom Air Corps, MAF, and MARC


  • What Is Going On In Ukraine? - Brian & Cathy Birdsall
    Location:  HHH 131
    Description:  What is happening in Ukraine? Why does it matter to me? What is happening to Russians living in Ukraine? What about Ukrainians living in Russia? How can I pray for the people of Ukraine? Should I be praying for the people of Russia as well? Come hear the Birdsalls' perspective on the country where they lived for 20 years and Brian continues to visit regularly.


  • Compelled to Help Heal - Panel Discussion
    HHH 106
      How does Medical Missions work? Are there both short-term and long-term opportunities. Do people in this field face a lot of death and dying? Are people with physical ailments open to the Gospel?

    Panel Members: Representatives from Ancient Paths, Free Burma Rangers, & Mercy Ships


  • Convinced of the Call - Panel Discussion
      HHH 139
      How do I know if God is calling me into Missions? My parents say people need Jesus here, so why do some people go to far way places? How to I explain to others that this what I must do?

    Panel Members: Representatives from Barnabas Ministries and Avant
