Unreached Network Online 2023

Unreached 2023 Online: The Peacebuilding Imperative

This year’s Unreached Conference will focus on God’s mission to create peace between all peoples, through Jesus Christ, and how we can play our part.

“All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.” II Corinthians 5:18  

 “For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility.” Ephesians 2:14

As guest speakers we welcome Owen Hylton (London, UK) and Michael Feulner (Yalova, Turkiye) to offer different perspectives on what God is doing in his desire to create a new, multi-racial redeemed family through the church.

As every year, there will also be a wide range of seminars and break-out spaces with mission practitioners from across the Newfrontiers family and across the globe, sharing their wisdom for wherever you find yourself on the cross-cultural journey.

Unreached23. The Peacebuilding Imperative.

9th June 6pm-9pm / 10th June 8am-4pm UK time.

Tickets £25 per screen.

Online via zoom.
