Hundreds of people come out to Missionfest Manitoba each year and this year has some incredible speakers, breakout sessions, and it's great for the whole family.
The event takes place from Friday, February 3, through Sunday, February 5, at Church of the Rock in Winnipeg (1397 Buffalo Place). Over 100 exhibitors will be on hand with booths showing the work that they do to make Jesus known right here in Manitoba and around the globe.
WAYS TO HELP
Volunteers are still needed to make the event successful. People who are able to give even a few hours this weekend can signup on the volunteer page of the MfM website.
Donate to MfM online: Missionfest says that, while they benefit from the good financial stewardship of the board and previous leadership, like all mission organizations, they rely on the generosity of like-minded people.
Missionfest needs partnerships in prayer and financial support from churches, businesses and individuals to be able to carry on with the work we have been called to do.
