Missions Fest Seattle is once again hosting a Friday Field Trip for Christian students in grades 4-12. There will be various workshops appropriate for their age. The event happens on Friday, November 5, from 10 am – 2 pm. There is no charge – the students bring their own lunch. Please scroll down for the registration form. We look forward to having your students with us!
The Bible is increasingly under attack, so this year we are offering workshops related to the credibility of the Bible in Creation and also dinosaurs living alongside men. This will add validity to the command in Scripture to “GO into the world”. We want to encourage young people to trust the Bible in all areas as it is further undermined by society (and even some churches) and give them ways to share their faith, which is Scripturally commanded.
Dan Swanson & Steffan Pyle: Mission Aviation
Extending Christ’s love to unreached people groups is impossible without transportation that can provide access into the most remote regions of the world. Come hear stories from missionary pilots and watch inspiring videos.
Debbie Gannon & Liz Heffington: Vision House
Chris Ashcraft: NW Creation
Doug Nunziato: MATA
The Bible says God created the earth in six days, but many people suggest it really meant something much longer. What does the Bible say about millions and billions of years? What does science say about it?
You are being taught about the Bible, but there are other people that teach very different things. How do I tell who is telling the truth? A short class in discernment.
Mark Schauffler: MSTGO
How to open the heart of any religious or non-religious person with real issue conversations. Based on work in all six continents during outreaches worldwide.
Dr. Ron Rice
See a short video and hear about an amazing ministry to the tens of thousands of polio survivors in Nigeria who spend their lives crawling on the ground.
Mark Schauffler: MSTGO
Description: Key tools you can use to plant and water and eventually harvest in the mission field we call home.
Jeff Boesel: One Challenge
Sometimes we think that we can only have significant impact when we get older. This just isn’t true. God uses us at any age as we respond in obedience to Him. In addition, what we do now equips us for what God has planned for us later. Make the best of every opportunity.
Cheryl Peirson: Operation Christmas Child
Join us for an interactive walk on the journey of a shoebox with Operation Christmas Child. Not only do you get to provide a special gift for a child who you don’t know, but because of your thoughtfulness they’ll get to hear about how much Jesus loves them.
Mike Pettengill: Mission to the World
Is it a waste of time and money to send young people on short term mission trips? Wouldn’t it be better off to send adults who have training to foreign lands? The answer is no. Matthew 28 and Acts 1:8 are very clear that the church and all Christians should play a part in missions. Youth have a major role to play in short term mission trips.
Janet Radford: Child Evangelism Fellowship
Is your friend in crisis and needs to know WHO REALLY CARES? Learn ways to share the Good News with others in your sphere of influence. Invest in eternity. Object lessons, and useful tools will be shown.
Peter Lublink: Bethany Kids
This interactive workshop will help children creatively consider ways that as Christians we can partner with others around the world in the Gospel of Jesus, avoiding some of the pitfalls of missions in the past. The goal of this workshop is for children to see how partnering with others can be far more beneficial long term than simply helping others.
What can Cats n Dogs teach us about missions? Apparently quite a lot! There are still people groups on the planet who have never heard the name and purpose of Jesus even though we’ve had the gospel for 2,000 years. How can that be? This session about Cats and Dogs will help you understand what needs to happen in order to give God the greatest glory possible and what missions has to do with that.
Nik & Ruth Ripken: International Mission Board
What would you do if you were the only follower of Jesus in your school? How would you react if your classmates made fun of Jesus? Nik and Ruth want to share what it is like for the children of Believers in Jesus who live in places where they are persecuted for their faith. As we hear their stories we will be encouraged to stand with these young people by praying but also by witnessing where we live.
Dan Williams: Reasonable Faith
Introducing young people to the concept of reason and faith working together in missions.
Angela Brandle: BLF Ministries (Bibles and Literature in French)
Learn who the hungry giant is, where he lives, what he wants to eat, and how to feed him. Includes a quiz with prizes.
