The Global Mission Consultation & Celebration – From Edinburgh to Tokyo

Before his death on May 20, 2009, Dr. Ralph Winter both spoke and wrote extensively for many years about the need for a global-level association of mission agencies and the organizing of a 2010 meeting at the 100th anniversary of Edinburgh 1910. It was his vision for this meeting to follow the format of the 1910 meeting especially regarding who would attend. The event Dr. Winter envisioned, the Global Mission Consultation & Celebration, will take place May 11-14, 2010, in Tokyo.
