Holste oversees affinity group leaders who direct the work of IMB’s nearly 5,000 field personnel and oversees IMB’s Global Research Department, Hunger and Relief Ministries and Orality Strategies.
His emphasis is helping business leaders and marketplace professionals engage in missions by utilizing their knowledge, experience, connections and creativity to advance the Gospel worldwide.
At 9:30 am, the topic will be global missions and the role of market place professionals. A continental breakfast will be provided.
Holste will speak on “the birth of a mission,” based on Nehemiah 1 at 11 am.
“My dream is that through the work of this new initiative, we will match our nearly 5,000 field personnel with 5,000 or more passionate, trained and strategically positioned and connected marketplace professionals working in concert together and alongside national Baptist partners and other evangelicals to ensure the sustained, effective engagement of every people group,” said Holste
