World Missions Center highlights Great Commission opportunities in South Asia

During its spring Global Missions Week, March 22-25, the World Missions Center (WMC) at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary hosted workers from the International Mission Board’s South Asia affinity team to share stories of how God is working in the region as well as to connect students with opportunities to reach people with the Gospel.

Among the events during the weeklong emphasis was the Going Global Luncheon, March 24, during which IMB personnel gave an overview of the missionary task available to every Christian.

“Every believer must find their role in the Great Commission and in that missionary task of fulfilling that Great Commission Christ gave 2,000 years ago to all disciples that would follow,” said one IMB representative. Due to security reasons, none of the workers can be identified. “As followers of Christ, we hope that you would consider your role in that.”
