This Is Our Goal

The goal of Finishing the Task is to send workers and plant churches in every people group… to finish the task of “starting” in every remaining people group of the world so those living without any knowledge of Jesus can hear about Him in their own language. Great Commission efforts have been accelerating at a tremendous pace over recent years and the goal is within sight. Don't miss this incredible time in history — get involved! We invite you to join us this year at the 2018 Finishing The Task Conference — Within Sight!

who should attend?

If you identify with one or more of the following categories, this conference is for you!

Sending
Organization/Church

You want to send (or help send) gospel workers to plant multiplying churches among Unengaged, Unreached People Groups (UUPGs).

resource provider

You indirectly engage UUPGs by providing resources (i.e., training, equipment, media tools or technology).

mission mobilizer

You promote the engagement of UUPGs by increasing awareness, vision-casting, and connecting potential gospel workers and resources with engagement opportunities.

prayer leader
or mobilizer

You promote the engagement of UUPGs through prayer in building a platform of prayer, awareness building, vision casting and connecting prayer as a foundational aspect and resource with opportunities among UUPGs

WHY
ATTEND?

This three-day event is a hands-on conference where you will interact with others to discover where the Lord is leading you! The conference will help you take concrete steps toward people group engagement. In recent years, the reach of the gospel has spread as never before. This is due to efforts such as the Finishing the Task Network, where like-minded leaders and pastors gather to prioritize and plan on how to more strategically reach the remaining Unengaged, Unreached People Groups (UUPGs) of the world.

Jesus told us to make disciples of all nations. These three info-packed days will help your church or organization to fulfill His Great Commission.

You'll meet trusted representatives from multiple countries who are willing to partner with you among the tough-to-reach remaining-to-be-engaged people groups.

You'll hear from the leaders of churches and indigenous missions about how their partnerships are working to plant the Church where there is none.

You'll find out how business and professional leaders within local churches are partnering with national leaders to accelerate their ministry and demonstrate their love through ministries of compassion.

You'll hear from pastors, mission practitioners, business men and women on how they are building vision and a legacy for their churches and families by engaging the most unreached people groups of the world.

You'll learn how to avoid financial dependence by helping workers to become self-supporting through micro-enterprise.

You'll hear about resources available to you from Saddleback Church, The JESUS Film Project, Faith Comes By Hearing, Global Recordings Network, MegaVoice, and others.

And so much more!
