Missio Dei is a two-day missions conference organized by the students, faculty and staff of Providence. Missio Dei means the sending of God; we believe that God chooses to work though people in a variety of ways so we are striving to continually be open to the sending of God in our own midst.
Missio Dei highlights the global nature of Christianity and focuses on the marrying of gospel proclamation with social action. The conference begins on Wednesday night with a diversity meal followed by an evening discussion. On Thursday, our classes are cancelled so all can attend the two keynote addresses and variety of workshops and panel discussions. The ever popular and exciting Marketplace is held on Thursday evening where both International and Canadian students can showcase their cultural talents and knowledge by bartering for services and products using Missio Dei’s very own currency – Konkel bucks. Throughout the conference, representatives from mission organizations are on hand to speak with students on an informal basis. Missio Dei is open to the Providence community as well as the general public, and offers all participants the opportunity to explore missions in its many forms..
