Calendar of Events: Mission Conferences, Courses, and More

Missions-Catalyst-no-tagline_largeDear Readers,

Thanks to all who took the time to participate in our recent one-question survey about how to make Missions Catalyst better or wrote to tell us how much you like what we’re doing (in response to Shane’s bold request). It was great to hear from many of you, and it isn’t too late to chime in.

Today’s edition has just one item: our curated calendar of mission events planned for early 2018. Take a look. Perhaps there is something that should be on your calendar, too?

We’ll return to our regular schedule with a batch of News Briefs from Pat on January 10. Until then, Shane, Pat, and I wish you a happy New Year. May the Lord continue to bless you and make you a blessing.

Cheers,
Marti Wade
