Missions Conference 2017
Unfinished: Writing the Next Chapter
Black Rock Church, founded in 1859, sent out its first missionary in 1933. In 1955, under the leadership of Pastor Stan Allaby, Black Rock celebrated the first Global Missions Conference. We are proud of missionaries we have supported, past and present. Through the work of the Holy Spirit and the witness and labor of our missionaries and ministry partners, countless people have become Christ followers and been baptized.
This year, we celebrated our 60th conference, Unfinished: Writing the Next Chapter. During this special week, we rejoiced at God’s faithfulness in our past and also talked about our future. We are grateful to be part of God’s plan to reach the world with the Gospel.With the leading of the Holy Spirit, Black Rock has been given the challenge to help Write the Next Chapter in God’s story.
Here Are Ways to Stay Involved:
Faith Promise Giving
Each year the Board of Missions establishes a financial goal in order to continue support of our current missionary family. Our goal this year is $1.2 million. You now have the opportunity to submit a Faith Promise pledge toward this goal. Please prayerfully considering what God would have you give in 2017-18 in support of our missionaries. Pledge cards are available in hard copy and online.
We would like each Black Rock missionary and missionary partner to have 10 Black Rock prayer partners, requiring over 900 slots to be filled. This is a wonderful way to encourage and support a missionary while also enriching your prayer life. Our missionaries would tell you that they would never dare to do their work without prayer support behind them. Sign up Sunday at our table in the Worship Center.
Want to change a piece of the world? STAMP stands for Short Term Adult Missions Program. These teams are made up of 10 to 30 people who sometimes give up their vacation time to come alongside our missionaries both overseas and here in the US. It’s a great way to find out what our missionaries do and is a life-changing experience! Click Here for 2017 Trips
