    No description available


At ECHO 14, we believe King Jesus has brought us into God’s Story. The biblical narrative from Abraham (Genesis 12:1-3) to the Great Commission by Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20) proclaims in what way the nations will be gathered. Through making disciples and being rooted the local church, the culmination of the nations gathered to King Jesus will be accomplished (Revelation 5). As discipleship begins in the local context, global realities will be birthed (Acts 1:8). It is our prayer and deepest desire that Biola students would leave the 2014 Missions Conference with a deep longing to be a disciple and to make disciples in the context of the local church as they are captivated by the grand story of God (Genesis 12:3; Matthew 28:16-20; Revelation 5). In this Grand Story, students will realize they have been called to make disciples in the Acts 1:8 model from a local context rippling to the global context. As students leave conference they will resonate with three main ideas: Story “I have a unique role in God’s global story and I can have a global impact through my local reality.” Discipleship “I have been called to be a disciple and to make disciples both in a local and global context.” Local Church “I have been called to love the local church and to practice discipleship within the local church context.” It is time for Biola to be captivated by God’s grand story and to see how the local church and discipleship will bring the culmination of every nation before the throne of King Jesus.
