The International Commission's exhibit booth "Share the Message of Life" was one of the organizational displays at the Spring 2009 BCF Missions Conference.

Displaying deep love and concern for those who have not heard the gospel, The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville will again open its doors for a special Missions Conference Oct. 25-27. This opportunity allows students, faculty members, and the general public to meet and connect with organizational representatives from a plethora of mission endeavors throughout the world.

Traditionally held in the spring semester, this year's conference, bearing the theme of "Opening Doors to Our Neighborhood and the World," is scheduled for the fall to give students more time for project preparation and fundraising.

Keith Eitel, Professor of Missions and Dean of the Roy Fish School of Evangelism and Missions at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, will fill the pulpit each day at 10 a.m. Esteemed author, missionary, and highly respected professor, Eitel has recruited, trained and led students on countless mission trips.

After an inspirational word from Eitel, attendees will have a chance to visit informational booths and learn from representatives and missionaries from the Florida Baptist Convention, the North America Mission Board (NAMB), the International Mission Board (IMB), Global Youth Ministries, Westside Baptist Church of Gainesville, Amazon Vision Ministries, Panama City Seafarer Ministry, Panama City Rescue Mission and Global Outreach Mission, Vision with Compassion Ministries, International Commission, New Tribes Mission, and many others.

"This conference is always a highlight for both our BCF family and the missions organizations represented," said BCF missions professor Rich Elligson. "It has resulted in renewed missions commitments, dozens of missions partnerships, and produced countless results for the Kingdom of God. The gospel is all about missions, and this is just one more way that the BCF community can participate in Kingdom building, as we seek to open doors in our neighborhood and around the world."
