Restore Missions Weekend Feb 22-23

February 14, 2013 by Jong Park

Restore Missions Weekend is a collaborative effort by some churches in the southern suburbs of Chicago to raise mission-mindedness among young adults. In the fall of 2012, we collaborated on a revival meeting called “Refuel”. Restore, then, is a natural progression of that conference: as we are refueled by the gospel, we want to be on mission to spread the gospel, which in turn restores a world broken by sin
