Welcoming new seminar committee members for the 2020 conference

Profile #1: 23-28 year old Christian professional currently working in the market-place (not working in a Christian org./church), and passionate about Mission/reaching out. S/he needs to be part of a church.

All seminar committee members are volunteers.
