GBM Annual Mission Day 2019
GBM is a church-
The focus of the delegates meeting was the Great Commission, that all authority has been given to Christ, and therefore we go, while the promise of Christ is that he will build his church and the gates of hell will not overcome his work. An increased number of delegates and several new member churches approved the budget for the coming year and elected new members of GBM Council.
Annual Mission Day is a buzz of breakout meetings. This time we had presentations
from Keith Charlton of OneHundredFold and our partners at Pastor Training International
and Christian Books Worldwide. James Hammond reported on a year’s work in the new
God’s word better. Finally, churches send people to plant churches that plant churches. James Hammond explained the thinking that had led to the start of Eglise Bordeaux Chartrons, and then a video of Hanson Manova described new things happening among the Tamil Baptist churches of South India.
In the final session of the day we said farewell to Jean Ellis on her retirement
in Austria, and we also said goodbye to Jim and Helen Sayers as Jim moves on from
the role as GBM Communications Director to lead a new church-
We love the way that Annual Mission Day reinforces every year the partnership in the gospel that we have as local churches working together in world mission. One way that is expressed is in the offering on the day which this year totalled £20,553 (including Gift Aid), for which we thank God.
Next year’s Annual Mission Day will be in Solihull on Saturday 24 October.
