The Global Outreach Conference is a five-day focus on our ministry efforts across the country and around the world.

This year, seven of our supported GO Partners will join us in Peoria for our conference, and we’ve scheduled several opportunities for the church to interact with them, learn about their ministries, and get involved in the work they’re doing across the globe.
