The Apostle Paul begins his letter to the Philippians by thanking God for their "partnership in the gospel from the first day until now." This partnership, which God has begun and will complete, is all for the glory of God. In a similar way, at College Church we partner with missionaries, ministries, and seminaries around the world and even here locally to further the gospel of Jesus Christ. During this festival, we will be learning about what God is doing around the world through these global partnerships. By seeing and hearing about what God is doing in the world, we hope for greater participation and commitment to spread the gospel to all nations.
