Quoting from Acts 11 (verses 19 to 24), Letitia Shelton emphasizes the importance of scattering God’s word to the four corners of the globe and then recounts her path from insular Christian to proactive leader committed to spreading the gospel throughout her city and beyond.
Balancing humor, insight, energy and an encyclopedic knowledge of scripture, at Movement Day Global Cities, Dr. Tony Evans, senior pastor to the Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, shared his vision of a collaborative, proactive urban Christianity.
“You and I are critical to keep our cities on the map,” he told the crowd, sharing a real-life parable that applies to America today.
Today several hundred leaders gathered for Movement Day Greater Dallas (MDGD). Leaders met from every corner of Greater Dallas to wrestle with the question of how the gospel transcends racial differences, economic disparity, and generational realities.
Korean Christianity is one of the great stories of church history. The church grew from the soil of martyrdom, persecution, and civil war into a globally vibrant movement. Seoul has some of the largest churches in the world and Korea has the highest number of missionaries per capita of any country in the world.
We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again. Movement Day Global Cities (MDGC) 2016 would not have been possible without the prayerful support of thousands around the world. Some of you used our prayer guide, others engaged in corporate congregational prayer, and countless members of the MDGC family made us a part of their daily prayer time.
Gathering 3,000 leaders from around the world makes for a beautiful time of shared fellowship and perspective. Different aspects of the experience will stick out to specific participants in unique ways. Since the purpose of this gathering was to bring together leaders from diverse countries and areas of ministry together, we wanted to capture the diversity of their experiences. Through our attendee survey and Movement Day Global Cities (MDGC) app, this is what you told us.
This past October, leaders from across the globe gathered for three powerful days of connection, celebration, education, and inspiration in the Jacob Javits Convention Center right here in New York City. Day after day powerful stories of God’s faithfulness and His people’s commitment to spreading the gospel were shared. Our team watched you pray, cry, laugh, and challenge one another. We came away humbled, energized, and inspired.
