On Monday, June 10, NAMB will host its annual Send Luncheon in the concert hall at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex at 11:45 a.m.

Attendance is free, but registration is required. Visit www.namb.net/sendluncheon to register.
The report will be followed by NAMB's presentation, which will highlight some of the major ministry stories that have taken place over the last year and feature the "Who's Your One?" evangelism initiative.
In the exhibit hall, NAMB will spotlight Who's Your One? and collegiate mobilization, while also featuring its two ministry areas: Send Network and Send Relief. The exhibit will feature interactive opportunities to connect with NAMB's ministries. Missionaries will also be available to discuss mobilization plans with pastors, churches and others to determine their next step for sending the Gospel to North America.
At the Cooperative Program stage, NAMB leaders and missionaries will participate in panel discussions and conversations about how best to reach North America.
