Here’s the release from BUA. For more information, visit www.bua.edu/maryhilldavis.

A “merge-model” of Hispanic ministry, practical advice for short-term mission volunteers from a key Kenya Baptist leader, and riches of resources for churches doing cross-cultural ministry make up this year’s Mary Hill Davis Missions Conference at Baptist University of the Americas on Sept. 11-12.

The registration fee of $25 ($20 for members of BGCT churches) includes printed materials from the workshops and the Woman’s Missionary Union banquet on Friday evening. The conference, for anyone involved in planning mission work in their churches, ends Saturday at noon to be followed by a free admission,  community-wide missions fair.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to hone Baptists’ ‘mission-ability’ and honor the on-going leadership of WMU in carrying out the Great Commission,” BUA President Rene Maciel said. “We will be privileged to learn some Missions 101 from Nairobi pastor Elijah Wanje and are convinced that First Baptist Church Kaufmann can teach a lot of us about how to cross cultural barriers to become the unified church Christ prayed for.

Co-sponsors of the conference are Baptist General Convention of Texas, Texas WMU, Hispanic WMU, Texas Partnership Missions, San Antonio Baptist Association, Buckner International, Baptist Credit Union, and Anchored Love Ministries.

The Friday dinner will feature presentations by Texas WMU president Joy Fenner, Texas Hispanic WMU president Bea Mesquias, and WMU interim executive director Nelda Seal.

The conference runs from 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11 through noon, Saturday, Sept. 11.  The missions fair is noon- 5 p.m. Saturday.
