Four Work & Witness conferences are being held this fall across the U.S.A. One of those is on the campus of Southern Nazarene University.
2012 Focus: Global partnerships and how they interface with Work & Witness

People are asking a zillion questions about the Nazarene short-term mission program called Work and Witness.
Let's get together and answer them.
Let's share our stories.
Let's plan for the future!
We'll have a special speaker. Long-time missionaries will be there. Veteran participants of 25 and more trips will be there. There will be displays from mission fields wanting teams, travel agencies, Compassionate Ministry centers in the U.S. and other mission trip support agencies and businesses.
Missionaries, Nazarene world region offices, travel agencies: Would you like to set up a display?
