This Jesus... Unstoppable

 

Prairie's Annual Missions conference is one of the highlights of our year! All conference events are free to students, staff, and community.

Lawrence Tong
Lawrence's spiritual journey began with a commitment to Jesus Christ at an evangelistic meeting in Singapore in 1973. He visited one of the Operation Mobilization (OM) ships, Logos, when it sailed to Singapore in 1974 and a year later he joined OM. His leadership journey has included among other places, serving as OM country leader for Taiwan.  After the 2008 earthquake he and a team of local partners established a fast growing work in the Sichuan region with a significant focus on welfare and agricultural programs. Lawrence combines an infectious enthusiasm for both the mission of OM and the well-being of its members around the world. And in 2013, he became the International Director of OM International. Lawrence and his American wife, Susan, have two adult sons, Josh and Benji, of whom they are extraordinarily proud. If you would like to learn more about him, please click here.

Brother Yun
Brother Yun was born 1958 in a poor family in China. He became a Christian when he was 16 and God called him to be His evangelist. Within a year he was arrested and while he has paid a heavy price for his witness (imprisoned 3 times) but he has seen also seen God do many miracles. Many people have come to the Lord through his ministry. He escaped from China in 2001 but he continues his ministry from Germany. His vision is to see the Chinese church evangelizing the unreached peoples from eastern provinces of China, westwards towards Jerusalem—most of these nations are Muslim—the movement is called “Back to Jerusalem.” If you would like to learn more about him, please click here.

Missions Heritage
Birthed in our distinctive missions heritage, Prairie's annual missions conference focuses on the outward commitment of the Christian to answer the call of Christ. Our goals for the Conference are to challenge all members of the Prairie community:

  • To embrace the biblical message of the global mission of God through anointed preaching. God’s mission originates in His nature, finds initiative in His divine will, and is expressed in the mandate of Christ to “go and make disciples of all nations.” God has called, equipped, and empowered the Church to participate as His servant in the responsibility and privilege of His mission.
  • To expose the community to the current works of God in global mission. God is continuing in His mission today through the worldwide witness of congregations to the gospel of Jesus Christ in every culture.
  • To engage in all realms of personal responsibility and influence to join God in His mission. The faithful Christian servant is to participate in the mission of God through willing submission to God’s unique design and calling.
