Christ Followers, 2004-2006 emphasis by WMU

Through drama and inspiring testimonies, WMU will launch the 2004–2006 emphasis of “Christ Followers” during its annual Missions Celebration June 13–14 at the Indiana Convention Center, 500 Ballroom, in Indianapolis.

“Building on the new emphasis, this year’s event is designed to encourage, equip and motivate us all as we take a closer look at key attributes of a true follower of Christ,” said Wanda S. Lee, executive director-treasurer of national WMU. “Together we will discover how God is working around the world through committed Christians who live a missions lifestyle because of a genuine love for Jesus Christ and for others.”

Laurita Miller, a nationally known Christian dramatist, will bring biblical followers of Christ to life through dramatic monologues she writes and performs.

Other leaders of WMU’s Missions Celebration include Amy Moody, worship leader, speaker, and singer; Wanda Lee; Janet Hoffman, WMU national president; 2004 Acteens panelists; and a host of field personnel representing the North American and International Mission Boards who will share their testimonies about their ministries.

Sessions begin at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 13, and conclude Monday evening prior to the Southern Baptist Convention’s June 15-16 annual meeting. Everyone is welcome; no pre-registration is required and the event is free of charge. Childcare will be provided.

In addition to five plenary sessions, the gathering also will provide opportunities for leadership training during three one-hour break-out sessions. Along with WMU age-level and language tracks focusing on the latest resources and research, a track on “missional living” will be offered. The track will encourage participants to explore issues that are foundational to missions involvement, including worldview, spirituality, relationships, leadership, communicating the Gospel and one’s unique calling to ministry. It is ideal for those who desire to grow in their commitment and understanding of God’s mission.

In conjunction with WMU’s Missions Celebration, the WMU Foundation will host the Legacy Dessert Party on Sunday, June 13, at 9 p.m at the Hyatt Regency. The WMU Foundation will present the 2004 Dellanna West O’Brien Women’s Leadership Development Award, the CWJC site award, the Sybil Bentley Dove Award, and the Lillian Isaacs Literacy Missions Award during the event.

The Legacy Dessert Party is the only portion of the WMU program that requires pre-registration. The dessert party is free, but tickets must be reserved by May 15. To reserve a limit of four tickets, call the WMU Foundation toll-free at 1-877-482-4483.
