ASI AU Fall Conference 2022
Reach the World Next Door
Sheraton Hartford Hotel at Bradley Airport, Connecticut.
September 8 - 10, 2022
Don't mistreat any foreigners who live in your land. Instead, treat them as well as you treat citizens and love them as much as you love yourself. Remember, you were once foreigners in the land of Egypt. I am the LORD your God. - Leviticus 19:33-34
People from different experiences, cultures and religions have made our world more colorful, interesting and exciting. Our neighbors are from distant lands and technology is closing the gap between regions. How do we navigate these shifts and interact with others to effectively share Christ with diverse populations? Thankfully, even in the face of change, one thing remains constant: “Christ’s method alone will give true success in reaching the people.” – Ellen G. White, The Ministry of Healing, p. 143
Reaching the world next door starts with a clear plan. At this year's Fall Conference we will explore God’s unique call on your life. You will be equipped with a sense of what God has called you specifically to do, leave with a step-by-step plan of action, and make new friends to hold you accountable.
Once you have clearer purpose, we will explore together how to;
- Develop an appreciation for the experiences and cultural differences of people from other religions and ethnicities,
- Help refugees and international students,
- Become proficient at sharing any Bible truth with someone from various religious backgrounds,
- And grow your relationship with God as you learn to better disciple a new believer from another culture.
You will get the inspiration and tools you need to reach the world next door at this year’s ASI Atlantic Union Fall Conference!
Join us in Windsor Locks, CT, from September 8 to 10, 2022.
