EM ROAD TOUR 2013
Engaging the Conversation about the future of Short-Term Missions
When does serving become self-serving? Have we accidentally robbed the poor of their dignity in our excitement to do good? How do we love people without making them projects? How can we live it out—not just experience it for a week?
Maybe these questions resonate with you. Maybe you’re wrestling with them in your own ministry. We don’t have all the answers, but we think that it’s certainly worth starting the conversation. Join us as we travel to cities and churches across the U.S. to address the growing skepticism surrounding short-term missions and work together to find a healthier approach.
We invite you to join one of our events and lend your voice to the conversation as we discuss topics like Dignity & Hope, part of our free, newly-developed training resources.
If you have any questions or would like to set up a time to meet with our staff face-to-face when we're in your area, call (360) 390-5536 or contact us via email here.
