Is your church part of the movement?
There is a movement starting in local churches across North America. God is providing Great Commission opportunities by bringing least-reached peoples from around the world and placing them within arm's reach of our churches. The nations are in North America. People from all over the world are moving into our communities, approximately 45 million of them. Many of these people are coming from places where there is little-to-no access to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
People are taking notice. In 2016 hundreds gathered in Nashville, Tennessee for the first ever Reaching the Nations in North America (RTN) summit. Pastors, missions leaders and agencies, state conventions, local associations, and a host of lay people came together for two days to learn about discovering and engaging people groups in their own communities. The response was so overwhelming we knew it was just the beginning of a national conversation. Now in its third year, we are expecting our largest summit ever.
The RTN summit for 2019 in Louisville, KY has been cancelled.
It is with deepest regret that we must announce the cancellation of the Reaching the Nations in North America (RTN) summit for 2019.
We've enjoyed a tremendous response from local churches and ministry partners for the last several years concerning the summit. However, due to a number of complicating factors, the summit has not reached the necessary registration to continue with preparations for this year. We concluded we could not facilitate the kind of learning experience this year that marked previous RTN summits. Creating an excellent experience for the local church is a top priority. Instead, the planning team is looking at other options to continue training and equipping local churches to find and engage unreached people groups in North America with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Thank you for your interest and past participation with RTN, and be on the lookout for more from Reaching the Nations in North America.
