Elkhart, Ind. — Mennonite Mission Network, in partnership with Mennonite Church USA Executive Board, Everence, and Mosaic Mennonite Conference, will host the seventh annual Sent Conference, May 4-7, at Circle of Hope and Nations Worship Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Visit MennoniteMission.net/Sent23 for more information. Registration information is coming soon.

The theme for the 2023 conference is "I Saw a Vast Crowd: Explorations in Multiethnic Ministry." The title is drawn from Revelation 7:9: "After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands" (NLT).

The conference, open to church leaders of all faiths, will explore how church planters and church leaders do mission with the intentionality of this multiethnic view from Scripture. Participants will connect and learn from fellow church planters and leaders who are doing multiethnic ministry while keeping the church's mission central.

In 2019, Mission Network's Sent Network was established as a natural extension of the Sent Conference. The Sent Network is a virtual course available through Mission Network.

"One of the characteristics of the Sent Conference has been its all-inclusive and intercultural flavor," said Mauricio Chenlo, church planting specialist for Mission Network. "Missional leaders and church planters have shaped the vision of the Sent culture. Join us, this is a great time to build relationships, share resources and grow as communities of love and witness."

Joani Miller, director of Mission Network's Training and Resources department, said, "The Sent Conference is an opportunity for all who attend to join together to experience the richness of the multiethnic family of faith," she said. "The agenda includes time for learning together, building relationships, and networking."

She also noted that the conference is also an opportunity to share a new framework the department will be using to provide learning and support for the missional church.

Participants will experience the unique culture and community life of South Philadelphia, with the conference being held in the local languages of Bahasa Indonesia, English and Spanish.

Mennonite Mission Network is a nonprofit enterprise, created to lead, mobilize and equip congregations to join God's reconciling work, so that God's healing and hope flow through us to everyone in the world.
