Commissioning service-72Baltimore Convention Center
1 W Pratt Street
Ballroom I&II, Level 400
Baltimore, MD 21201

Experience God’s heart for the nations and join us in commissioning field personnel for overseas service.

This is a rare opportunity to experience a joint commissioning service of up to 100 new field personnel representing the International Mission Board and North American Mission Board, along with messages from SBC Executive Committee President Frank Page, mission board presidents Tom Elliff of IMB and Kevin Ezell of NAMB and national WMU leaders. This will take place at 4 p.m. in the Baltimore Convention Center Ballroom held during the WMU’s 125th Anniversary at the 2014 Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting.

“Commissioning missionaries for special service is a great privilege,” said Wanda S. Lee, executive director of national WMU. “It is a time to celebrate their calling, voice our affirmation and prayers as we hear their testimonies and commit ourselves to ‘hold the ropes’ prayerfully and financially as they go. We invite everyone to join us and be a part of the commitment, prayer and excitement as these follow the Lord’s call to their place of service.”
