“Our passion is that our city will be known as a sending city that God uses to reach the unreached,” said Act1v8 coordinator Gary Hempel.

“There are approximately 16 000 people groups in the world today. Nearly 6 000 are regarded as unreached with the good news of Jesus Christ! There is much work to be done and we all have a role to play!” he said.

There are no costs for  attending the conference – offerings will be taken at the various meetings. Guest speakers include Mike Burnard, head of InContext Ministries, who for the past 35 years has served the Lord and His Church in closed and restricted countries.

There will also be a focus on what the Lord is doing among refugees and how the local Church can play a part in this unique opportunity, said Hempel.

Various exhibitors will display throughout the weekend
