I can’t tell you how excited I am to have Tom Randall as our speaker for Global Outreach Conference 2018, both Sunday morning services and in the evening. Our theme is “Epic: Joining God’s Heroic Narrative”. Tom’s life has definitely been an “epic” – from growing up in the mean streets of Detroit, to college basketball phenom, to missionary in the Philippines, to P.G.A. Chaplain, to the White House, to a recent unintentional jail ministry. (Yes, he’ll talk about that!)
I got to know Tom when we were both missionaries in the Philippines, and especially when we made a movie together! (I hope he doesn’t tell THAT story!) He is one of the most inspirational people I know, and he’ll get you to think about YOUR story and how you fit into GOD’S story.
Our theme verses are Psalm 107:1-3 “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story— those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, those he gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south.”
God has redeemed people from all over the world here at Valley Church, and everyone has a tale to tell about their lives. What’s YOUR story? What is God doing in your life? Are you ready to tell it?
Don’t forget about our Sunday night Global Outreach banquet. Join us for a potluck dinner at 4:30 pm, followed by Tom speaking and breakout sessions. Learn more about some of our visiting missionaries, new missionaries, and upcoming short-term missions opportunities. Childcare will be provided! (Sign ups on Sunday morning are appreciated!)
Until all have heard!
