All In: Take the Next Step

If you’ve been around the church for any length of time, you’ve probably heard of the Great Commission. Go into all the world and preach the gospel. That’s a pretty hefty mission.

Perhaps it’s been a while since you considered what your part in this mission is. Or maybe you’re not sure you even need to be a part. (That’s what missionaries are for, after all) It’s so massive; someone else will probably have to do it.

Maybe you have been thinking about it and you would love to do something to bring the gospel to more people, but you’re not sure what to do next.

Maybe you’re active in your part of the mission, but getting bogged down.

At Mission Conference 2020 – All In, we’ll help you find your place, experience refreshment, and take the next step as we go All In for the Great Commission!

Paul Seger, General Director of Biblical Ministries Worldwide, joins us as the main speaker on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to preach and encourage us to take the next step to be all in.

Missionary guests include Jacquelyn Davis and a team from Children’s Bible Ministries, and Jesse and Tena Luper who serve Native American tribes.

On Friday and Saturday evening, we’ll have Food for You and Your Crew provided by the church at 6:00 before the service begins at 7:00. On Saturday afternoon, look forward to a hands-on activity as we fill care packages and write cards and notes to each of our missionary families.

Paul Seger, General DirectorGuest Speaker: Paul Seger 
General Director of Biblical Ministries Worldwide

Paul has served as the General Director of Biblical Ministries Worldwide since 1994.  He grew up in Nigeria where his parents served as missionaries for many years.  After graduating from Appalachian Bible College and Faith Baptist Bible College, Paul served as assistant pastor at Community Baptist Church of Reidsville, North Carolina.  The Segers began their missionary service with Biblical Ministries Worldwide in 1975. 

Paul’s wife, Joan, also grew up on the mission field as her parents served in Malawi and Zimbabwe.  Joan ministers to missionary ladies, missionary kids, and churches in the United States.  The Segers have two children, Ryan and Joanna, and presently live in Atlanta, Georgia.

Prior to their current ministry, Paul and Joan served as missionary church planters for 17 years in South Africa.  Their ministry focused upon the European population in that country.  Together the Segers formed a team to plant churches, disciple new believers, and train leadership for the churches they established.  They were involved in starting three churches and training pastors through the Church Ministries Institute.

The focus of the Seger’s ministry is one of giving visionary leadership to Biblical Ministries Worldwide while helping the international workers served by BMW succeed in their ministries.  The Segers are committed to the strengthening of American churches and assisting them toward greater mobilization and effective service on the mission fields of the world.

Jesse and Tena LuperJesse and Tena Luper
Association of Baptist for World Evangelism (ABWE)
Ministering to Native Americans

Short weekly glimpses of how God is at work in North America to stir your worship and prayers

What is life like as a Native American? It has been said that Native Americans are one of the least-reached people groups in North America. Horrifically painful memories are still deeply embedded in the fabric of generations. Years after the Trail of Tears and the damaging effect of boarding school assimilation, the trauma cycle continues. Life on an Indian Reservation is often one of poverty, alcoholism, limited opportunities, and high suicide rates. One might find work at a chicken or lumber factory, or in living off of the land. Life is often lived in the moment, with little hope for the future. There is a lack of trust for the white man and it can take a long time to build trust.

If you were to sit down and talk to Jesse and Tena Luper about their years of living with and serving their Native American friends, you would get to sense a bit of the love in God’s eyes and heart for this least-reached people. Because of Jesse’s Delaware and Cherokee roots, they understand and have an informed, special compassion for their friends. 

In 2008, after joining ABWE, the Lupers moved to Vancouver, British Colombia where they served among First Nations reservations for five years. Upon returning to the States, God led them to partner with Native American Bible Ministries and Academy in Oklahoma. Throughout the years, the Lord has allowed them to come alongside pastors in a mentoring role, train leaders, teach auto mechanics and financial management, fix up the NAMB Bible college, and recruit students. They understand what it is to live among their Native American community and make themselves available. They want to be there to meet people at their point of need, in crises when they want to talk, opening their home to listen and share.

Through ministry to Native Americans, God has given Jesse and Tena glimpses of what He is like. 

They see His faithfulness when those who come to know Him are seeing that they can trust Him, and trust what He says.

When Tena sees her friends hurting so deeply, even if it is hurt from their own doing, she sees God’s heart of mercy and grace.

They see how our God is not helpless, though they can feel helpless seeing people in incredible pain and dysfunction all around them.

They have witnessed our God as the One who brings total transformation.
They have seen His heart for individuals, the Shepherd who leaves the ninety-nine to seek out the one.

Intern Program Coordinator

Meet Jacquelyn Paige Davis!
She was born in Wichita, Kansas and trusted Christ as her Lord and Savior at the tender age of 6. At the age of 10, she began to develop a very personal relationship with God and a desire to serve Him for the rest of her life. After her senior year of high school, she served as a camp counselor for CBM’s Camp Ta-Pa-Win-Go in Watauga, TN.
The next year, she accepted an internship with Smoky Mountain Christian Village, where God taught her about full-time ministry and many people skills. It was the Director there God would eventually use to call her to ministry at CBM’s Camp Gilead in Polk City, FL. She served as Summer Camp Counselor in 2012, Registrar Intern from 2012-2013, and Head Female Counselor in summer of 2014.
She returned home to Kansas, desiring to be in full-time ministry but not sure where or how. God needed some time to mold, shape and train her and did so through her home church, family, and job at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Wichita.
In September of 2015, she was approached by the CBM National Directors and she began praying about the position of CBM National Intern Coordinator. God began to move! By November, she had accepted the position and started raising support. By January 11th she had moved from Kansas to the Smoky Mountains to begin her new ministry! When God is at work, it is amazing to see the results!
As CBM National Intern Coordinator, Jacquelyn is the primary point of contact for all interns. She fosters an environment of accountability, manages intern schedules and acts as an advocate on behalf of each intern. Her responsibilities also include recruiting trips, reading and following up with all applications, and creating and updating social media pieces.

Team Calvary at Youth Horizon Sun Run 2020

Easter Sun Run 2020

From the Sun Run Website


Dear Easter Sun Run Community, 

The past week has been full of turmoil and uncertainty for our country, and world. While we are deeply disappointed that we will not be able to host the Easter Sun Run at Sedgwick County Park next month, the mission of the Easter Sun Run will go on, as it is one of our biggest fundraisers for the work of Youth Horizons. I am happy to announce that the Easter Sun Run is going virtual. We are prioritizing health and safety of our runners, volunteers, and staff and are responding to guidance from health and governmental officials. 

How will a virtual run work? On the weekend of Easter, instead of gathering to run/walk at Sedgwick County Park, we encourage you to go the distance you registered for, whether that's 2 miles or 10K, and whether that's running, walking, or skipping. Different location (your neighborhood, park, etc.). Same weekend. Same mission. Since this is our 26th year of the race, we see this virtual run as a time for us, as a community, to show our strength in a challenging time, and a chance to get out of the house to run or walk physically with family and friends and virtually with our community around the city and state. 

Registrants will still receive a very special t-shirt, a chance at door prizes, and a chance at medals if you choose the option to join the virtual race. Please encourage others who have yet to sign up to still join you! 

If running virtually is not of interest to you, you can transfer your registration into a donation to Youth Horizons. That money will go directly to serving at-risk youth in our community and training the adults that work with them to be the best advocates and role models they can be. 

Whether you choose to support us by being a virtual runner or by donating, you are supporting our community in big ways and, in partnership with our sponsors, the mission of Youth Horizons and of the Easter Sun Run to fund that mission, will go on. If you have any questions about your registration, please contact us. 

Sincerely and so gratefully, 

Hayley Kaufman, Marketing Director for Youth Horizons

Every marriage is guided by a set of habits. The question is: are they healthy habits that result in a God-honoring and joyful marriage, or are they bad habits that lead to a self-centered and strained marriage?

Childcare will provided both Friday evening and Saturday morning. Sign kids up on the online registration form or on the bulletin board by the church office.

Each child will need to bring a sack lunch for dinner on Friday evening and snacks for Saturday morning.
