QuadrennialIf you are considering attending the 2010 Quadrennial Assembly, this information is for you. Do you want to learn how the Christian Church supports ministry and mission around the world? Are you curious about the daily lives of missionaries in lands and cultures far away? Are you the type who thrives on "getting your hands dirty for Jesus"? You can get a ‘quick start’ on Quadrennial activities by becoming involved with several pre-events June 20-23, preceding the Quadrennial, which takes place in Greensboro, N.C., June 23-27.

Three pre-events will take place before the Quadrennial Assembly, including "Become a Disciples Mission Fund Advocate," June 22-23; "Become a Ministry and Mission Interpreter (MMI)," June 21-23; and "Build a Habitat for Humanity House" beginning with dinner on Sunday, June 20 through June 23.
