The Whole Church Gospel World

The Urbancrest Missions Conference Starts In...



"After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.” Revelation 4:1

In 2022 we will focus on the phrase from this verse "a door standing open in heaven," applying it to our local, national and international partnerships. Our Missions Conference theme for 2022 is...

A Door OPEN in Heaven.


Spiritual warfare is very active before, during, and after the Missions Conference.

About the Conference

The Urbancrest Missions Conference is our annual celebration where we have the opportunity to meet and celebrate with our local, national, and international ministry partners. We learn how to be personally involved in missions by praying, supporting missionaries through our Faith Promise Fund, committing to serve in missions, and sending our own members to the mission field. Lastly, it's a time to celebrate our Lord and the mission work done for His glory.
