Liberia Partner Summit & Mission Education Event

November 13, 2015 @ 10:00 am - November 14, 2015 @ 3:00 pm

For the second year in a row the Detroit Conference will host the national Liberia Partners Summit, Nov. 13-14, 2015. “Doing Good Better” is the focus of the Saturday session, open to all local churches wishing to transform their outreach ministries.
The Summit will begin on Friday, Nov. 13 at 9:00 a.m. and conclude on Saturday, Nov. 14 at 3:00 p.m. The site of the 2015 Summit is Nardin Park United Methodist Church, 29887 West 11 Mile Road, Farmington Hills, Michigan.

The purpose of the 2015 Summit is to better coordinate and maximize partners’ mutual efforts in evangelization, education, health care, and economic opportunity in Liberia. Updates will be shared on ministry priorities being implemented in Ebola-free Liberia.

The Saturday session–DOING GOOD BETTER– will be valuable to mission teams from all local churches — not just those focusing on Liberia.  It will feature an In Mission Together Team from the General Board of Global Ministries with a focus on 50/50 Covenant Partnerships. Such partnerships equip local churches for global and local engagement. Learn to empower others without creating dependency.

Participants will learn more about how to move from short-term, needs-based charity to long-term, asset-based development.  If your church regularly sponsors mission trips, domestically or internationally, the Saturday program has value for you.
