NCU hosts annual World Gate conference
Minneapolis, MN - World Gate, a three-day missions conference hosted by the North Central University College of Missions, was held on campus as a part of NCU’s annual week-long focus on missions. World Gate helps send students to study abroad for a semester or more in a different country.
Included among the week’s activities was a beneficiary dinner to raise money for students to participate in future journeys to distant places. Dinner attendees heard NCU students Marissa Dean and Regina Rasmussen talk about their trips and how financial support from donors made their experiences possible. Dean went to Mbale, Uganda, for a “Nine Days” trip followed by her internship for the summer of 2013. Rasmussen went to India to study abroad and serve in missions for a semester. Director of Assemblies of God World Missions, Greg Mundis, D.Min., delivered a short sermon to close the meal, encouraging attendees to pray and support all missionaries so that they can spread the gospel to other countries.
Chapel speakers for the week included both Mundis and Dean of NCU’s College of Missions Gary Denbow, D.Min. Participants also enjoyed an evening event called “Welcome to My World,” a “Live Dead” lunch, and a World Gate concert featuring performances from a diversity of cultures.
