Introducing “The Church on Mission”: an ICOMB consultation on mission and prayer
Location: Bangkok, Thailand
Dates: 7–11 March 2017
The global MB family is seeking God’s direction for our greater mission calling. MB Mission is a vital part of this event as we work together. It will be historic. In 1988, a mission consultation was held in Curitiba, Brazil. ICOMB was a result. In 1999, a smaller mission consultation was held in Wichita, USA. This is the first time that the global MB church itself is calling for such a meeting.
Our vision is that each conference will leave with a renewed sense of God’s calling with three or four specific mission initiatives (global and local). Our faith vision is that each group will leave with a commitment to build a prayer movement in their national church.
Steering committee: Heinrich Klassen (Germany), Paul Duck (Brazil), Vic Wiens (MB Mission), David Wiebe (Canada)
