In the spirit of innovation that will characterize this year's FellowSHIFT Conference (the National Conference of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches), we are excited to present a variety of ways for attendees to ENGAGE with Encompass.

Encounter Atlanta 2014

Thursday, 03 July 2014 13:38

Encounter Atlanta 2014 has just ended, and the team from Akron, OH and Maryland depart today. The last five days have been a whirlwind of new experiences, cross-cultural introduction, and in-depth learning about ministry opportunities here in Atlanta. One of the great things about our Encounter Atlanta trips is the way they help grow a passion for ministry and increase our biblical worldview. We’ve all been impacted by our time with this team and their partnership in ministry, and we pray for their continued growth as well as safe travels!

The new trainees for Engage 5 are here in Atlanta, GA and are busy filling their minds with relevant training material! Many from the group spent long hours traveling to get here, but they all are smiling anyway as they gear up to go to their respective fields of ministry. Engage 5 is our 5 week long training program that enables our missionaries to practice for the work they will do on the field, and to prepare for possible challenges they may come across. Please pray for energy and the ability to absorb a wealth of knowledge as we train together!

The premier Mission Leaders Conference for the USA is coming to Atlanta this September 25-27. The 4 timely and applicable topics are: 1) Immigration/Migration, 2) Urbanization, 3) Globalization and 4) Exploitation.  We are partnering with the FGBC office to secure a $100 reimbursement on registrations if we can get a "Fellowship Forum*" 10+ FGBC leaders to the conference and have dinner together Thursday night and Lunch Friday!
