Encompass is Hosting Vision2020 South


Encompass World Partners is thrilled to host the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Church's annual conference "Vision 2020 Leadership Conference South " July 26-31, 2013 in our headquarter city of Atlanta, Georgia. Encompass leadership has worked closely with conference planners in choosing this strategic location to create an all new type of training experience for conference attendees. 

Central to the conference schedule are the new "Mobile Learning Lab Experiences" which offer groups of conference attenders the opportunity to not just to sit and listen to someone teach about cross-cultural ministry, but to experience it personally. The goal is to provide multi-cultural and effective church training by giving you an opportunity to participate in learning about Islam,

Hinduism or Buddhism or engaging in ministries related to reaching refuges and doing business as mission through 6-hour modules offered Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. Learn more here and check out the video below. Our staff is helping organize and host most of these Mobile Learning Lab Experiences with Encompass missionaries also participating to provide their experienced insights.




The conference center is just 8.3 miles away from the Encompass World Partners headquarters. We invite you to come visit us during our Open House on Sunday afternoon from 1:30-3:00 to see where we train new missionaries, provide supporting services to our staff around the globe, collaborate to make more effective disciple-making teams and so much more. Visit with Encompass missionaries, enjoy some refreshments and check out our strategic location and workspace area. Click here for directions and enjoy the 20 minute drive that makes you feel you are visiting cultures from around the world.

Another thing that will make this conference unique is the record number of Encompass missionaries that have chosen to schedule their home ministries for the summer of 2013 specifically to help host you in our headquarter city for Vision 2020 South. Make sure you connect with them at our exhibit table, at our open house, at our breakfast on Saturday morning and between other conference events.

So please join us! Registration and other information is available at
