KINDRED CONFERENCE

THE FUTURE OF SHORT-TERM MISSIONS

JULY 17, 2021

KINDRED CONFERENCE | SUMMER 2021

Following a year of travel bans and flight cancellations, routine short-term missions trips facilitated by churches, student ministries and other organizations have been largely put on pause. We believe the time is now to thoughtfully engage in reframing and reimagining our short-term missional efforts in ways that fully consider what is the most ethical, the most sustainable, the most healthy, and the most holy way forward in our pursuits abroad. Join us this summer for a  one-day virtual gathering where we will unpack, reevaluate and broaden our vision for how to best steward the gospel of Jesus Christ across cultures.

 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. // 1 Peter 2:9-10
