LOUISVILLE

More than a thousand members of various Christian denominations and their missionaries will gather July 18-25 at Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pa., for the 110th New Wilmington Mission Conference (NWMC.) All meetings and events are free and open to the public.

This year’s conference features talks from Mike Haddox, Marilyn Borst, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) international evangelism catalyst the Rev. Jaun Sarmiento, and many others. Programs designed specifically for elementary, middle and high school students, as well as college students and adults, are offered. Childcare for younger children will also be available.

Each year, the NWMC engages in a mission project that highlights the many areas in which its participants engage. This summer’s mission project will be Stop Hunger Now, an organization that packages and transports food to various countries in need. This will the fifth year that NWMC and Stop Hunger Now have teamed up. Last year, 24,800 meals were packaged the week of NWMC and sent all over the world.

This year’s Summer Service Team will deliver talks on Monday and Friday. The team of seven is currently serving for six weeks in Cuba. Once back in the U.S., the team will be available to share their stories and experiences from their time in Cuba.

Plans are in place for a special event for all past and present Summer Service Team members featuring pictures, stories, food and fellowship.
