Mission on the altar: carrying our cross as a best practice in both local & global mission

Time:

Saturday at 5:00pm

Location:

Level 2, Room 13

Speaker:

Lynn Chotowetz

Organization:

Hands at Work in Africa (Exhibitor Booth: 804)

Seminar Description:

Human nature is to be the hero of our story. Carrying this into mission work is fruitless and damaging. True local & global mission is a call to lose our lives, and the missionary is in a backstage role. Examples from Africa & Canada show the cross leads both to effective development and True Life

Speaker's Biography:

Lynn chairs the Hands at Work in Africa movement of African churches responding to the ongoing AIDS and orphan crisis in sub-Saharan Africa. Lynn now also leads with his wife a new initiative engaging the Saskatchewan church with families in the local child welfare system.
