GO Conferences, over the course of a Saturday, are designed to provide effective and timely information on how to create and sustain successful outreach ministries. The sessions will be held on April 16 at Community UMC, 309 College Ave., Fruitland Park, Fla. 34731 and at First Ocala UMC, 1126 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala, Fla. 34470. The conference will be held on April 23 at New Covenant UMC, 3470 Woodridge Drive, The Villages, Fla. 32612, and at Ocala West UMC, 9330 SW 105th St., Ocala, Fla. 3448.

"All Christians are called to fulfill the Great Commission, joining Jesus in His mission of making disciples of all people," said The Rev. Max Wilkins, president and CEO of The Mission Society. "Our GO Conferences give step-by-step specifics on how to energize your congregation for sustained and successful mission outreach."
During the GO Conference, attendees will learn about Biblical and global perspectives on mission outreach; how to lay the spiritual groundwork needed to make outreach a success; and how to develop a simple, thorough outreach plan. They will learn how to build and maintain ministry partnerships to facilitate local, regional and global missions and how to be effective at short-term missions. They will also hear about a proven method for funding a mission outreach budget.
"Your church has sleeping giants – those men and women who follow Jesus, in whom a passion to reach all of God's world has yet to awaken," said Jorge Acevedo, lead pastor at Grace Church in Cape Coral, Fl. "When they awaken, watch out! Your church will give, go and pray locally and globally in unprecedented ways. The GO Conference offers biblical perspectives and practical strategies to mobilize your church to join Jesus in his mission."
