Baptist Church to Focus on Missions at Conference


Luebke, Nancy, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)


Byline: Nancy Luebke Daily Herald Correspondent

With the goal of seeking the source of God's word and applying it to our lives today, Faith Baptist Church in Winfield will hold its annual missions conference March 9-13 at the church, 27W010 Parkway Drive, Winfield.

A dramatic production of "his words: HIS WORD" will open the conference at 7 p.m. March 9. Then former church members will be featured speakers and reinforce the conference's theme of "Tell His Glory" on March 12 and 13.

"We've held the conference for many years, and each conference has different speakers who try to inform church members and others that we're the church that has the outlook to present the Gospel to others from an evangelical basis," said Miriam Van den Akker, vice president of the church's missions committee.

"This year's theme is how we got God's word and how we are applying it today. Unless we have God's word, we cannot witness to people in prison or other countries," she added.

During the conference, the planned events will help explain the missions that the church supports. One of the goals of the conference is to keep church members better informed about the work of the missions. Members of the church and interested members of the community are invited to attend any or all of the events. While the events are free, those attending may make freewill donations.

The conference will kick off at 7 p.m. March 9 with a drama based on the true story of William Tyndale and his struggles to translate the Bible into English. The production, "His words: HIS WORD," dramatizes his life, work and ministry as a scholar in the 1800s in England. He defied King Henry VIII, Cardinal Wolsey and the pope when he translated the Scriptures into English.

Maranatha Productions, Inc. of Lancaster, Pa., in association with Wycliffe Bible Translators, will present the drama starring actor Erik Nelson as a wandering troubadour who explains through action and music the story of Tyndale's translation of the Bible.

"Recounting Scripture is what this year's conference is about, and the group is telling the story of William Tyndale, and how he used the Word during his time," said Van den Akker.

She added that the local publishing company, Tyndale House in Carol Stream, took its name from William Tyndale.

The hour-long play is appropriate for families. Van den Akker said that the play will be easily understood by children in first grade and older. …
