This past weekend at Eastbrook Church we continued our annual MissionsFest, a two-week journey of awareness, engagement, and growth with God’s mission. So much has been affected by the pandemic, including having international guests with us. The first weekend we were privileged to hear from Nashat Filmon of the Palestinian Bible Society via video direct from Jerusalem. This past weekend we heard from our good friend, Dr. David Kasali of Congo Initiative and Université Chrétienne Bilingue du Congo. Dr. Kasali is one of my modern-day heroes of the faith, who I first met many years ago during my time on staff at World Relief and have been blessed to continue to cross paths with for these last several years.
You can view his message video and outline for the message is below. You can follow along with MissionsFest here and the devotional that accompanies the series here. You could always join us for weekend worship in-person or remotely via Eastbrook at Home.
This coming weekend at Eastbrook Church we began our annual MissionsFest, which spans roughly ten days and covers two weekends of our services.
This year’s theme is “We’re Family” and explores the ways we journey together on mission both locally and around the world. We will have two of our international partners sharing in services, as well as many other friends from around the world with us.
A Day in the Life: Walking in Another’s Shoes (October 14) – A Family friendly interactive activity designed to help us see beyond the label and dignify others by recognizing their depth and worth. This activity can be done at home with individuals, families, or even small groups.
This past weekend at Eastbrook Church, we concluded our annual MissionsFest. As we celebrate God’s faithfulness to us as a church for forty years, we heard from two of our long-term, international ministry partners on the theme of “Hard Places.”
This second weekend, Rev. Canon Francis Omondi from Kenya spoke to us about the nature of life in the kingdom, beginning from the Sinai Covenant and the Exodus through the exile to Jesus and toward Revelation.
You can watch Francis’s message below, as well as find out more of what is happening in the next week and a half with MissionsFest here.

This first weekend, Rev. Yousef Hashweh from Amman, Jordan, spoke to us from the life of Jesus and the story of Joseph about seeking after others in a message entitled “Seeking My Brothers.” I originally posted this on Monday but am reposting it after some technical difficulties were resolved.

The next two weekends at Eastbrook Church are the bookends of our annual MissionsFest. This year we are turning our attention to Eastbrook’s historic commitment to mission in challenging contexts with the theme of “Hard Places.” We are privileged to have two guest speakers, who are long-time partners in ministry in the Middle East and the Horn of Africa. We will share in a study of Isaiah 61 as we hear from our friends and field workers from hard places around the city and the world.You can access more information here.
