Gather to Scatter: Kingdom Come


We want to gather believers together to encourage & challenge one another in reaching the nations.

Registration Now Open!

July 14–15, 2023

The Korean Central Presbyterian Church (KCPC)

Centreville, VA 20121

We are excited to invite you to MTW's third East Coast Missions Conference, Gather to Scatter: Kingdom Come!

We desire to serve local churches and provide resources that are practical and gospel-centered in order to encourage and challenge one another in reaching the unreached nations. And we desire to provide a context in which the mission is both now and everywhere.

In addition, it is our prayerful desire to see increasing diversity among our missions force. We believe that when more diverse missionaries are invited and encouraged to bring their voices and their gospel stories, it better reflects the image of God and sets the foundation for fruitful ministries. The conference will feature speakers from diverse backgrounds as well as highlight opportunities to support an increasingly diverse number of missionaries.

We pray that the Lord will use this conference, that His will be done and accomplished, and the nations will be glad in His name!

Kingdom Come will feature wisdom and insight through seminar sessions, meet and greet time with missionaries, and panel Q&As.
