Around the World, Across the Street
MissionsFest 2018—October 20 to 28—brings us face-to-face with GOD's grand mission to restore a broken world. EACH of us has a part, using our unique gifts and experiences, and we do it TOGETHER.
"God has given each of you a gift . . .
Use them well to serve one another."
– 1 Peter 4:10, NLT
We want to celebrate the “power of presence” and be inspired by the many avenues and platforms whereby God's presence—through us—is bringing hope and changing lives around the world and across the street!
As a long-standing tradition of Wheaton Bible Church, our West Chicago campus, MissionsFest provides many special opportunities to celebrate, learn, and then take action. If the event is being held at Wheaton Bible Church campus it will be clearly indicated. Regardless of the location, everyone is invited to join events at either campus!
