Following months of planning and prayer and days of hard work by dozens of amazing volunteers the Witness: West Coast Missions Conference has been completed and it was a rousing success. In the end 265 people registered for the event. The keynote speaker, Joel Kim, President of Westminster Seminary, spoke three times over the two-day conference.
The other speakers included Dr. Alexander Jun, Reverend Lance Lewis, Erin Pettengill, and Dr. John Kaddis. Each of them did a wonderful job. The Venture Christian worship team provided three sets of praise music over the two days. Over 40 missionaries attended. All the missionaries had booths and interacted with the participants throughout the event.
The missionaries had individual meals with small groups of people. Many of the missionaries led a total of nine break-out sessions. In addition, the missionaries participated in a Q & A panel on the main stage.
In the end, 23 individuals signed up and committed to prayerfully consider more involvement in missions. We believe this conference was greatly glorifying to God and a great benefit to his Great Commission among the nations.
