Missions Conference, June
, 2013

The annual Home Missions Conference has a two-pronged emphasis:

  1. Helping the members of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC) to see more clearly what they can do to help existing mission works, and what role they might play in starting a new OPC congregation
  2. Helping people who are not currently members of the OPC but are thinking that they might be interested in starting an OPC mission work to understand what is involved.
