CHICAGO, May 14, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Luis Palau Association's Next Generation Alliance (NGA) will host the Connect Conference in Chicago on June 25, 2018, at Highpoint Church in Naperville, Illinois. The event will provide a unique opportunity for evangelists to be encouraged and challenged by fellow Christians who share a heart for worldwide evangelism. NGA's Connect Conference is free. Pre-registration is required. Visit www.nextgenerationalliance.org to register.
Luis Palau will visit via video. Highlights from the last twenty years of unified ministry will also be shared during the conference. The event will also feature practical trainings on a range of topics including fundraising, church mobilization, and building a prayer network for evangelistic ministry.
This year marks the 20th year of Palau's Next Generation Alliance. Founded in May 1998 by Luis Palau, the heart of NGA has been to identify, affirm, equip and mobilize the next generation of evangelists. What began as a small fellowship of evangelists in the United States has grown to a global network of nearly 700 members who are committed to spreading the Gospel around the world.
Twenty percent of the NGA membership is now outside of North America, and as the numbers and diversity continue to grow, the motto "One Message, Many Expressions," has never rung truer.
"I'm excited about what the future has for NGA," Vic Murphy, extreme sports athlete and NGA partner, said. "There's never been a time like this with so much opportunity. With communication and travel and the Internet, we have so many avenues to proclaim the Gospel in the world. Looking back and seeing what we've been able to accomplish, I believe it's only the beginning of what God is going to do through NGA in the future."
The NGA Connect Conference is in partnership with the Amplify Conference on June 26-28. The cost for the three-day Amplify Conference is $199 before May 31. After June 1, the cost is $299. This price includes all training seminars and meals. Information and registration can be found at www.amplifyconference.tv.
