Before Jesus ascended into heaven, He commanded his disciples, “Go and make disciples of all nations.” For almost 2000 years the church has been working to fulfill this command. But now, for the first time in history, our generation has the real opportunity to finish the Great Commission race. We’re running the final lap! Please join us on March 2 to learn more about the Sprint to the Finish of the Great Commission. You’ll hear from leading experts on gospel engagement, Bible translation, and church planting about just how close we are to the Great Commission finish line. You’ll be informed about what’s been accomplished and what remains to be done, inspired by the amazing things God is doing through His people around the world, and invited to find your place in the Sprint to the Finish!
