9Marks at Southeastern
a conference about the church, for the church


a conference about the church,

for the church

September 28-29, 2018 | Wake Forest



The theme, or mark of a healthy church, for the 2018 conference on September 28-29 is Missions.

Even though most Christians will never move overseas, the Bible enlists every Christian and every local church in the grand project of global missions. The local church is the engine of world missions. But where should a church begin?

Churches don’t need a complicated missions program. They need the Bible and the wisdom to know how to apply it. The goal of this conference is to point to Scripture and offer practical steps for training and supporting missionaries, forming international partnerships, sending short-term teams, and engaging the nations both at home and abroad.

The 2018 9Marks at Southeastern Conference will provide a biblical foundation for missions and seek to prepare attendees, leaders, and churches for spreading the gospel to their neighbors and the nations.
