At the Missions Fair, you will be able to personally meet and talk to missionaries who have traveled from the countries where they are serving around the world, just to be here this weekend and share their work and passion with you. You will also get to talk to our local missions partners, who are serving our communities right here in Huntsville, and find out how you can be a part of serving in missions in your hometown. No registration is needed.
Kids Mission Quest
Each child will start their mission quest by picking up a Kids Mission Quest Adventure booklet. As they journey through the Missions Fair, they will follow prompts in their booklets to search for answers that can be found at our mission partners’ tables. For every correct answer, they will receive a stamp. When they get 12 stamps, they can go to the Kids Mission Discipleship table to get a prize!

South Campus Atrium
The Global Prayer Walk will be an immersive experience, taking you through a gallery of images and objects from the eight affinities of the world. Learn about the people groups in the countries of each affinity, see how they live, and pray for the people and the missionaries who serve them as you walk through each exhibit. The affinities, as defined by the IMB, are: The Americas, Europe, NAME (North Africa Middle East), Sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia, South Asia, Asian Pacific Rim, and the Deaf Affinity. No registration is needed.
As we prayerfully stroll through the 8 affinities of the world in our Global Prayer Walk, we will build a prayer keychain along the way. Each affinity will have a colored bead representing the people in that region of the world. The colorful keychain will remind you to pray for the many different peoples of the world.
