2012 World Missions Summit 3
|A rally at World Missions Summit 2|
Plans are underway for World Missions Summit 3, December 28-30, 2012, at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Texas. As in past events, Assemblies of God World Missions will partner with Chi Alpha to challenge young adults to “give a year and pray about a lifetime” of missionary service. “The Summit has grown in importance for 18-30 year olds and we anticipate an even larger number of participants for Summit 3,” says David Lee, director of AGWM U.S. Relations and conference organizer.
Each region within AGWM and International Ministries will present the need to reach the lost for Christ through visual and media presentations, interactive cultural exhibits, and music. Mealtimes will focus on establishing relationships with AGWM leaders and missionaries. “The Summit is reality missions,” says Lee. “Young adults hear, see and experience missions in events, exhibits and interactive breakouts.”
Chi Alpha leaders at Sam Houston State in Huntsville, Texas, report that 11 full-time missionaries and several missionary associates from their Chi Alpha group were influenced to serve in missions at past Summits. At the February 2010 World Pentecostal Congress in Chennai, India, several missionaries told E. Scott Martin, Chi Alpha director of student missions and conference organizer: “The World Missions Summit confirmed my call to missions.”
The Summit will include “Gatherings” for all participants with worship, special presentations and a missions speaker. Morning and afternoon “Windows to the World” will introduce young adults to the variety of missions opportunities and give them insight into cross-cultural living.
God has used the past Summits to change lives. At the 2008-09 event, 140 young people were baptized in the Holy Spirit and 845 signed a commitment card to “give a year and pray about a lifetime” of missionary service. One young adult said, “I’ve attended church all my life, but this was different. I’ve been changed.”
