2016 Centenary Missions Conference

Declare his glory among the nations

Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvellous deeds among all peoples.

Psalm 96:2-3

At the 2016 SMBC Centenary Missions Conference, we celebrated the privilege we have as God’s people to declare his glory among the nations. To worship him in the splendour of his holiness. To ascribe to him the glory due his name.

Keynote speakers, Don Carson and Julyan & Lenna Lidstone, shared the biblical, theological and practical imperatives for global mission. Our 12 seminar speakers also brought us a wealth of wisdom and practical experience. It was a conference for pastors, for believers in our churches who are concerned to foster awareness of mission, and for those involved in, or considering involvement in, the glorious work of taking the gospel to all the nations.
