Special Speaker Series

The Special Speaker Series is a series of monthly Webinars featuring an expert speaker in a particular area of evangelism or outreach. He or she will provide in-depth training on sharing the Gospel within a certain cultural or social context or to a specific group.

This live, interactive training webinar provides viewers with ample time to ask specific questions of the special speaker. It is available to both MISSION U students and to visitors at no cost.

Each webinar occurs one Saturday each month year-round. Please join us here Saturdays monthly from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. CDT to access future Webinars.

Special Speaker Series seminars:

Reaching Out To Military Families
Speaker: Chaplain Mike Moreno

Repeated deployments have taken their toll on both military members and their families. Many in the Armed Forces will be returning home as the military downsizes. Is your congregation ready to receive them? Operation Barnabas is an ministry outreach initiative created to equip churches to reach out to military members. Join us Saturday, April 26 10am CST for this one-hour, interactive webinar with Operation Barnabas founder, Chaplain Mike Moreno, who will empower you and your congregation to show the love of Christ to a population that is in need of stability and healing.

5/17/2014 :: 10am CST
Going Beyond the 3 R's in Lutheran Schools
Speaker: Laura Montgomery

The students who fill the seats of our Lutheran schools today aren’t necessarily church members. While parents often choose a Lutheran school for its religious focus, there are many unchurched parents who choose them for the academic quality and nurturing environment. The opportunity to share the love of Christ with these students and their families can reach from inside the school walls out in the community. Join us on Saturday, May 17 at 10am CST, when Laura Montgomery, Director of Educational Resources of the Lutheran Elementary School Association in St. Louis, will share her experience as a teacher and principal to equip you to make the most of this fruitful outreach opportunity.

6/7/2014 :: 10am CST
Serving As Christ In Your Community
Speaker: Greg Arnett DCE

“People don't care what you know until they know that you care.” One way to show the communities around your church how much you care is by reaching out in love through community service. Join us on Saturday, June 7 at 10am CST for Serving As Christ In Your Community, a one-hour, interactive webinar with guest speaker, Greg Arnett DCE. Arnett will share the insights he has gleaned from leading over 40 Servant Events and 25 years of equipping God's people to become servant-leaders in their communities. You will be empowered to make your congregation an essential part of the community and open doors to share the love of Christ.
