Overseas Ministries Study Center
J. Nelson Jennings
We have lived off the generosity of the past, particularly an original endowment. In recent years we have cut expenses, streamlined programs and staff, and been diligent stewards of our every dollar. Even with many generous gifts, changing economic realities have hit us hard. We have greatly cut costs, but we cannot put our role in “the Great Commission” at risk. We ask you to join our staff and trustees in making a sacrificial gift to the best of your ability.
Every visitor to OMSC leaves with a powerful understanding of contemporary world mission. Every reader of the International Bulletin of Missionary Research gains deeper insights into mission’s meaning. Indeed, we are extraordinarily positioned to strengthen mission today. Because we “serve God’s servants from around the world” we are a unique meeting place of people on the forefront of mission.
OMSC is a safe harbor for the meeting of wonderful Christians from fractured traditions, bringing together outstanding mission leaders who otherwise would not meet. Our wide-reaching friendships and scholarly networks are crucial for transcending these fractures, enabling us together to address heartbreaking challenges of international and societal maladies. These relationships enable OMSC to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, the spiritual center of all Christian mission, in New Haven and in other “ends of the earth.”
We are not trying to alarm. The alarm was sounded 2000 years ago when Jesus invited us to embrace the world that “God so loved.” Our call to you is to help us be as strong as God’s beloved world needs us to be. That call is urgent for you and for OMSC. As you make your gift, please feel free to post a comment on this Facebook page and contact me. We would love to know your input, questions, and areas of interest and involvement. Our Web site is a terrific resource as well as a way to contribute. Thank you for helping us meet the exciting mission challenges of today and tomorrow.
