Unpacking the Great Commission

										Sins the Church Has Regarding Evangelism Kamikaze Evangelism vs. Biblical Evangelism
  • Overview

    Jesus said, "Look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest" (John 4:35) and “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest” (Matthew 9:38).

    At White Unto Harvest 2012 A Great Commission Mega-Conference, we will seek, by the grace of God, to unpack the Great Commission, as it applies to the individual, the home, and the church. There is no more powerful force at work in the world than the life-saving, culture-transforming, disciple making power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    With topics ranging from discipling your children to discipling the nations, to applying the Great Commission in the office, to street preaching, to counting the cost of following Christ, we desire to encourage a passion for fulfilling the Great Commission. We desire that Christ would be exalted in the Church and in all the nations of the earth.

    We desire that we would be sent out from this conference – men, women, and children – with greater fervor to spread the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. If Christ is worth dying for, He is certainly worth living for.

    This mega-conference will bring church leaders, evangelists, and whole families from across the country and from around the world. We will open to you the gospel and how we can proclaim its truth to those about us through our speech and behavior.

    Please join us (along with your whole church) for this exciting conference on the Great Commission – White Unto Harvest 2012.
