Missions Fest is an exciting development within the evangelical church throughout North America. Many churches and Christians are coming together to celebrate the progress of the gospel throughout the world, and to become more effective participants. Missions Fest began in 1983 in Vancouver, B.C., and spread throughout Canada. It is beginning to gain momentum in America.
The purpose of Missions Fest is to help each church excel in carrying out its missions program. Whether your church has a denominational focus, interdenominational cooperation, or a mix, it is the local church that has the responsibility to bring the gospel in word and deed to the world.
Together we can help Seattle area Christians become World Christians in a way that we cannot do alone. Dozens of mission agencies, working in many regions and undertaking different types of outreach, will provide a panoramic view of missions at their exhibits and through seminars. The assemblies and youth rallies will challenge us all towards committed involvement in Christ’s great mission.
While all the Missions Fests help each other and follow similar principles, each is run independently and under the leadership of local sponsoring churches. Your church is invited to become a partnering church for Missions Fest Seattle (MFS). The impact brought to the Church within the greater Seattle area is dependent on participation by the local churches.
Your church can participate as a Partnering Church! If your church would like to be a Partnering church, please fill out the PartneringChurchForm and return it to the address on the form.

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion, it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.
God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
