Origins of World Mission
World Mission Lecture Series
Sermon on Isaiah 19: 16-24
Martin Paterson (OMF)
The Origins of Modern Mission
Mission in the Twentieth Century
The first World Mission Lecture Series at ETS focussed on the topic ‘The Origins of Christian Mission”.
To begin the day, Martin Paterson (OMF) preached an excellent sermon from Isaiah 19. This was followed by two interesting and challenging talks by Dr John Ross on ‘The Origins of Modern Mission’ and ‘Mission in the Twentieth Century’.
Finally, there was a time of prayer, where those present split into small groups and prayed together for mission in local, national, and international contexts.

ETS holds four World Mission Days within the academic session. These days, two per semester, are set aside to hear God’s word, explore issues in mission, and spend time in prayer together as staff, students and interested friends.
