Sending Church Summit

Behind every Southern Baptist Missionary is a Sending Church. Becoming a Sending Church is more than just holding a commissioning service, but is about equipping church members to live in a cross-cultural context, supporting IMB missionaries, and praying for the nations. During our Sending Church Summit, we will hear from professionals in the field of sending to ourselves become better equipped.
