ION North American Conference, 17-19 Sep 2018

“Tell me a fact and I will learn it.  Tell me a truth and I will believe it.  Tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever.”  Native American Proverb

We are all oral communicators.  Our Creator God made us in His image, and used oral approaches and methodologies to communicate with us from the beginning.  How can we take His example and utilize oral and creative expression to further the next new wave of missions?

How are we taking the word beyond cultural and physical boundaries?

There are 4 billion people in the world who learn primarily through non-textual means, with a minority of resources attempting to reach them for Christ.  Furthermore, the remaining Unreached People Groups are predominately oral societies.

The Orality: Many Applications – One Mandate event will take a collaborative approach to exploring how we can:

  • Become effective among Diaspora communities in North America and around the world
  • Understand particular pathways for connecting with oral communities
  • Grow churches, evangelism, and discipleship using oral methods
  • Use skills in media and the arts in a new wave of missions, in this “generation of the artist”
  • Know orality as personal and not an “other” method of communication
  • Give the message in a way that sticks
