Holistic Mission Webinar: Part One
Baptist World Alliance Webinar Series
BWA Commission on Mission
In response to the global impact of COVID-19 on the mission of the church, the Baptist World Alliance developed and released a Holistic Mission Guide earlier this year featuring over fifty articles from around the world. To expound on the ideas and principles found within the guide, the BWA Commission on Mission is hosting a 3-part webinar series.
The first webinar will guide church leaders and grass root church members through the theme of “Justice and Compassion.” The first presentation will be on “A Society’s Outpouring of Kindness” by Sophia Williams and the second by Jonathan Ingleby on “Justice and Compassion: Mission in Post-COVID Society.” A story written by Seketuno Chase Punyu on “Teaching Children to Persevere During the Pandemic,” will be narrated.
