One of my students at CIU, Alvaro Williams, writes about this great opportunity in which he is serving as coordinator:
“Impacto Global” or “Global Impact,” organized by CIU, will be held in Shortess Chapel Saturday, September 28th. The conference seeks to bless the Hispanic Church through excellent and relevant Biblical teaching. This event strives to gather the many Hispanic congregations in the state of South Carolina, to foster a sense of community among them and to encourage them to participate in the global cause of God.
This year’s theme for the conference is “A Global Impact Church.” We believe that the Hispanic Church is often unaware of their key role in the Great Commission. There are over 7,000 unreached people groups in the world today, many of which Americans have limited access to. However, the Hispanic World is welcomed by many of these groups and has an easy point of entry. The heart behind this conference theme is to produce “Global Christians.” Prayerfully God will do a great work, igniting a passion in hearts of the attendees to actively participate in the mission of God, desiring Christ’s name to be exalted and known among the unreached.
The conference, conducted in Spanish, will last only one day. There will be three plenary sessions, workshops and a panel discussion. The speakers have had overseas experience or are in some way involved with training or equipping leaders for the mission field.
