Sea Island

April 22-25

You are cordially invited to join East-West at a special intimate gathering at the home of Mike and Melinda Lafitte in Sea Island, Georgia on April 22-25 (Thursday-Sunday).

East-West exists to glorify God by multiplying followers of Jesus in the spiritually darkest areas of the world. This task requires the whole church going to the whole world – reaching the lost with the good news of Jesus. Our time will be filled with encouraging testimonies and stories from East-West front line missionaries and key leadership. We will be led in worship by Shane & Shane throughout the weekend as well.

Our prayer for our time together is that God would be glorified and stir the affections of your heart into deeper relationship with Him, motivating you to fulfill your role in the Great Commission. 

Dates: April 22-25, 2021
Location: Sea Island, Georgia
