Allison Howell of the Akrofi-Christaller Institute of Theology, Mission, and Culture in Ghana, who was a Fall 2009 resident senior mission scholar, proudly wore her OMSC T-shirt this fall when she was in New South Wales, Australia. “I am grateful to God for my time at OMSC and for the opportunities it gave me to develop new insights for ministry, not only in Ghana, but which have a broader application in mission” she said. If alumni/ae still have an OMSC-branded T-shirt, hat, or little bear, we would love to receive a photo of you wearing your OMSC spirit wear for publication in a future newsletter or as a Facebook post (contact us).
Ravi and Mercy David (at the podium), the 2016–2017 senior mission scholars, were among the speakers on October 26 for OMSC’s mission luncheon and seminar for pastors and church mission leaders. They talked of their ministries that “equip and encourage” missionaries and church leaders in Bangalore, India, and around the world. A Central Asian couple also spoke about their vital ministry and former Board of Trustees member Larry Fullerton of Black Rock Church challenged attendees to support OMSC. Executive Director Thomas J. Hastings (seated at left) was the speaker on “Partnering for God’s Mission in the Context of World Christianity.”
