Missions Conference 2015

Posted by Alan on September 4, 2015

September 27 - 30, 2015

Missions: Where do you fit in? The thought of accomplishing the Great Commission is a daunting one. How will we communicate the Good News to every person on earth? It’s through a team effort as we “fit jointly together” through the body of Jesus Christ. 

Every Christian has a part in accomplishing the Great Commission given by Jesus Christ. It's the focus of  Missions Conference 2015. Where can you fit in? Perhaps it starts with attending this conference and learning about different ways people are reaching the lost around the world. Pray that you will recognize just how you fit into the worldwide mission of the Gospel.

Missions Conference 2015 kicks off Sunday morning at 9:15 am in the sanctuary. Our guest speaker is Paul Seger of Biblical Ministries Worldwide. Check out the schedule to see the other activities and services that are a part of the conference. 

Guest Speaker Paul Seger

Paulhas 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 (BMW) 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.

BIEM shipping donation packing.PNG

How can you fit in? One way is to donate items to send to Christians in Ukraine.
Sam Slobodian (BIEM) informed us of the need for new or gently used items for the ministry. 
Items requested:
  • shoes 
  • infant items (including clothes, bottles, pacifiers, etc.)(no perishables)
  • toys
  • winter wear
  • medical equipment (no medicine)
  • soccer, hockey, and basketball equipment

BIEM shipping container semi.PNGDonations are used by the church to help orphanages, needy families, and unsaved families who need to hear the Gospel. BIEM is filling a 40’ shipping container, so please give generously. 

New or gently used items please. Bring the donations to the boxes located in the foyer. Each box will be marked with a certain donation category. 

Considering that it takes $7-8k to ship a container to Ukraine, financial gifts will be used to help cover shipping.

Thanks for being a part of missions!

Lee is pastor of Payson Bible Church and Field Leader of the Utah/Idaho field for Biblical Ministries Worldwide (BMW). They enjoy reading, writing, 1-1 disciplining, hiking and woodworking. 

Lee was born in Utah, and was led to faith in Christ by a BMW missionary pastor at age 9. After Bible School, he and Diana married near St Louis, and he served as a youth worker at Hope Bible Church in O'Fallon MO. Diana was born near St Louis and trusted Christ as a child. She was active in her youth group. In the Whitworth's early married years, Diana worked at the headquarters of Child Evangelism Fellowship. The missionaries of the BMW team were Lee's friends and mentors, and invited him to return to Utah. The Whitworths joined BMW in 1985.
