You know how when you plan for something, then what you get is even better? Yeah. That. Feeling. IS. AWESOME!! It’s pretty safe to say, event participants and staffers alike went away with a, “Whew! That was some-kind-of-amazing weekend.” None of us will soon forget it.
If you missed it this year, make sure you catch it the next time!
Below are three videos to give you a taste of our passion for Christ and our heart to make a place for someone like you to discover, prepare and go!
A Time for Silence & A Time for Noise

Stories of personal missions discovery and service.
Your Journey to Mt. Moriah
Matt Johnson, General Youth Division Secretary
If we brought in the world's greatest authors, asking them to pen what took place at Global ConNEXTions, their words could never come close to encapsulating all that took place. The future will unveil the tremendous impact of a word fitly spoken, a song aptly sung, a slap on the back encouragingly given, the sights, sounds, smells, and speech creatively demonstrated.
Each stepped through global security, customs, and immigration into the ripened harvest. See you again...in the field!

Excellent work on the event this weekend. It was evident from the content that filled my social media that it was a huge success!
The travail over the nations was indescribable. Can't wait to see what kind of world impact will happen because of these past few days. Well done, indeed, Global ConNEXTions team!
Thank you so much for the Global ConNEXTions Conference! It was awesome!
Global ConnNEXTions....the first of many. What a wonderful, incredible time of learning and seeking His Kingdom!!!! Life changing!!!
There was a LOT of hard work that went on behind the scenes! THANKS for making the Global ConNECTions a big success.
If you've never been a missionary in a room full of missionaries then just know that it is an incredible, unforgettable experience. That many people dedicated to going to the ends of the earth armed with little more than a Bible = Wow!
This experience is for laborers; I Am Global is for finances! So thankful to be there and to be impacted. Truly an alarm clock moment for all of us and the BEST is yet to come in Jesus name!
The AIM training and Global ConNEXTions meeting was tremendous, and it was a blessing to be a part of it...both need to be repeated and become an annual part of what Global Missions is to our fellowship - in whatever form is best to continue permeating the UPCI with the endtime call to missions service.

So great-full for a vision fulfilled that will impact multitudes of souls worldwide! So blessed to see it unfold. Leadership at every level has, is and will see the results sooner than later!!! Thanks to all who made it happen!
I can't think of a single event in the history of Global Missions that has impacted so many to commit themselves to a time of service on the mission field. The planning, the preaching, the music, the teaching and the visuals were orchestrated so well by an outstanding team...I believe this will serve as a prototype for even greater future endeavors. GM has a bright future!
My heart is overflowing from @globalconnextions. I couldn't even begin to put in words or fit in a cool caption what God has done & how powerful it was to sync together with missions-minded people for the "soul" purpose. Also, s/o to my African Missions family, it was beyond refreshing to be with y'all again! SO thankful for the Global Missions team for taking initiative to organize such a monumental event & doing it with a spirit of excellence.
Just saying Thank You for this weekend is like trying to empty the ocean with an eye dropper! It was such an incredible time! Thank you for believing in all of us enough to put together such an event! That shy little 9-year-old redhead who feel in love with missions...never could have fathomed that one day she would be going into the field, finding that same kind of passion & love for a people she's never meet, never seen, a burden for a country or region she'd never heard of much less been to! If I can only be & do a quarter of what you all have, I'll count myself highly blessed!
Global CoNEXTions is an exciting, informative meeting where anyone interested can discover their place in Missions whether it be abroad or supporting from the home base. It's a venue where you can hear the experiences of others, interact with Missions personnel, discover where you belong in the kingdom, walk through a market, hear the drums from Africa, sit in a CSI tent, feel the passion for souls, and determine what your NEXT step will be.
Global Missions Team and every one who helped in some way to make this weekend amazing, awesome, challenging and life altering!!!! EVERYTHING was FIRST CLASS!! Excited and expecting greater things!!!
