CrossCulture has been partnering with many Global Partners and missionaries throughout the years. We hold an annual Global Mission Convention each year to inform you of what God is doing in the world, inspire you to be part of His plan for the nations, and involve you to be part of the action in reaching the unreached.
This year, we are so excited to bring our 49th Global Mission Convention online. We hope that you can take part in this week-long convention and be challenged.
