The World Missions Banquet has historically been one of the highlights of General Assembly week. The winners were announced at the Banquet on Monday, July 25, 2022, at the Grand Hyatt Lone Star Ballroom. The Banquet attendees enjoyed Geron and Becky Davis and Voices of Lee under the direction of Danny Murray from Lee University. Our featured speaker for the evening was Dr. Mark Rutland. Dr. Rutland is the Founder and Director of the National Institute of Leadership and Global Servants, a missions organization with focused efforts in Ghana, and Thailand. He is a New York Times Best Selling author, educator, charismatic leader, businessman, and a nationally recognized figure in Christian higher education.
One of the many highlights of the evening was the time set aside to honor the General Director, David M. Griffis, and Assistant Director, M. Thomas Propes, for their six years of service to Church of God World Missions. Their charge to “Send the Light to the Cities” has made a lasting impact on the dissemination of the gospel around the globe.
