mEETING DETAILS     SCHEDULE

The New Wilmington Mission Conference is pleased to be a host to the Malawi Mission Network meeting for 2016.  The network will meet from Saturday July 23rd through Tuesday July 26th while still taking part of some of the offerings of the New Wilmington Mission Conference.  You are invited to meet those in the network and learn more about their ministries.

Meeting Details

Malawi Mission Network's 2016 annual meeting will be a bit different than our normal format. We will be holding our meeting within the New Wilmington Mission Conference at the invitation of our friends from the Pittsburgh Presbytery/Blantyre Synod partnership. The New Wilmington Mission Conference is an all ages, week-long gathering intended to "...deepen the missionary spirit, live out the Great Commission, and proclaim the gospel in service and witness for Jesus Christ." I'm excited to participate in lectures, worship and fellowship at this long standing conference and hope to share the story of the Malawi Mission Network with many who don't know about us yet. 

 

We will hold our Malawi Mission Network events on Saturday, July 23rd through Tuesday morning, July 26th.   The New Wilmington Mission Conference runs Saturday July 23rd  through Saturday July 30th.  You are welcome to stay for the remainder of the Conference one the Malawi Mission Network's Meeting Concludes.  


We will be staying together in a block of comfortable dorm rooms, we will be eating together as a group and we have scheduled informal social time every evening so there will be plenty of opportunities to visit with one another each day. Please register today and join us at New Wilmington in July. If you have any questions, please contact me via email at jdkee@wowway.com.
