Friday photo: Buckner Missions engages community on mission topics

Wednesday, local pastors, missionaries and ministry partners gathered at the Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid in Dallas to participate in the first installment of the Buckner Missions Lecture Series, featuring Dr. Jon Singletary, dean of the Diana R. Garland School of Social Work at Baylor University. 

The lecture is the first of several in a new initiative by Buckner Missions to engage with the community to discuss the trends, models, research and practices for missions, community development and poverty alleviation strategies.

“We are creating a space for thought-provoking, spiritually challenging and action oriented dialogue between the missiological community and subject matter experts,” said Diego Silva, Buckner Domestic Missions team lead. “We are trying to better understand and learn how to create missional strategies that focus on outcomes and results, that truly impacts the lives of vulnerable children, families, volunteers and donors. But most importantly, we are seeking to explore, together, what the Kingdom of God really looks like.”

The next installment of the Missions Lecture Series is scheduled for Sept. 21 in Dallas, Texas. For more information on the series or to sign up to attend, contact Diego Silva, Buckner Domestic Missions team lead, at dsilva@buckner.org.
