Resources from Mission Conference

Randy Alcorn, in one of his books, writes about a young missionary man named William Borden. William Borden was a Yale graduate, an heir to a great amount of wealth. His parents gave him everything; withheld nothing from him his whole life. After graduating college, he rejected his life of ease. He gave away almost all of his wealth and he moved to Cairo, Egypt to share the...

Ed asked me to speak on evangelism as we are preparing for this Missions Conference focused on developing a culture of evangelism. And so I thought this morning that I would begin by sharing with you my most recent experience in evangelism. We were in Orlando about a week ago on a sunny, Saturday morning, 75 degrees - a beautiful Florida day. And I was in the backyard...

Well, we are looking at the Scriptures and Matthew chapter 16. Please take your Bibles and turn there with me. We'll spend a few moments looking at one verse. We're going to study verse 18. There's so much in it, we don't have enough time this morning even to study that verse, but we're going to give it our best shot. But we want to read the context...

David, thank you again. And once again, thanks to you and Sheena for your warm hospitality and to this church and the missions committee. If you’ve treated your missionaries the way you’ve treated me this weekend, I know they can’t wait for next year to get back to First Presbyterian Jackson! I mean, I got to my hotel room last night and you had these cookies and all...

As you certainly know and I was so pleased to hear Ed’s challenge to you of all the missionaries that First Presbyterian Church supports, and you know that when we talk about God’s missional purposes in the world we are certainly talking about global purposes, that our God is concerned about and in the process of bringing about the redemption of people that are all over this world...

Good evening. It’s good to be back with you tonight and it was a blessing to be with you this morning, and praise God for our time together this evening once again in worship and in God’s Word. Would you please bow your heads with me this evening as we go to the Lord in prayer and ask Him to bless our time?

Father...

A beautiful passage and a passage that our team, myself personally and others, depended on, as with other passages - not the passage itself but the promise that went behind it. The promise that He is about the work of building His church and no matter the context, no matter the difficulty, no matter the trust issues that the people that we’re ministering to may or may not...

This, in my mind, is a logical next step after our discussion, after my sermon this morning on the church. This morning we talked from 1 Corinthians 12 about how the fact that we are baptized into one body, that we are given to be in one body, and that given is in fact that we are made to drink of that Spirit it says in 1 Corinthians...

It is my privilege to be here and to hear you guys as well.  I’m quite worried that you’re sitting behind me, so just be careful with those bows and things!  Alright?  But it’s great to be here with every single one of you.  I want to look at God’s Word at Philippians chapter 1 and we’re going to look at just a few verses there, verse 19...

It’s my privilege to be here, also my wife Annabel, she’s delighted to be here.  We thank you for your kindness and hospitality to us.  We’ve been here many times and it’s encouraging to see some of the things that are going on.  It’s kind of strange having David Strain here.  I don’t mean for you; for me, he is one of our students.  I think the first...

Good evening.  Let me first thank the Missions Committee, the Session, and the Reverend Mr. Strain for this invitation.  Indeed not one I take lightly.  It’s a privilege to stand in this pulpit. As you all know, Second Pres. Greenville is Dr. Duncan’s home church so I felt connected to this place for years before I ever actually saw the church, so we’ve been loving for y’all and...

Now would you please turn with me in your copies of God’s Word to the book of Romans, chapter 15?  You’ll find it there on page 949 if you’re using one of the church Bibles.  Romans chapter 15.  We’re going to be reading from verse 8 through verse 13.  Before we do, let me pray first of all and then there will be a brief word by way...
