Each year Heritage sponsors a Missions Conference to bring the foreign mission field to Prattville. This is one of the most meaningful and special events that we have the opportunity to host during the year. Single missionaries, missionary couples and families are brought in for an exciting four day event that challenges our hearts, widens our perspective, deepens our devotion to the God who has sent us into the world, and opens our eyes to all that God is doing worldwide. We are blessed, and in turn we are able to be a blessing to these missionaries that come for the conference. Through Project "Perissos" (from a Greek word that means exceedingly and abundantly above) we are able to provide for the needs of our missionaries, encourage them, and send them home better equipped to face the challenges of the field.
The Missions Conference for 2017 is entitled "Lighthouse: Into the Darkness a Light Shines". This year we are welcoming missionaries who are giving their lives to serve in Australia, Liberia, foreign nationals in New York City, Mexico, and locally here in Alabama.
This years theme verse is Isaiah 49:6b, "I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth." (ESV) Regardless of the geographic location on earth, these missionaries have answered the call of God to serve in the darkness existing in our world and to be a light that shines into that darkness for the glory of our savior Jesus Christ. You are invited to the conference to hear from these missionaries, get to know them, and then continue to support them in prayer in the future.
