Mission in time – before and after 1992 December 9, 2022

Posted by Pete B in Uncategorized.

It’s encouraging to think that for a few people from the UK their first steps towards involvement in global mission began back in 1992 in response to celebrations of the BMS Bicentenary. I know I did but I’d spent a lot more time memorising and proclaiming the words of William Carey than most of the audience.

I was part of a ‘multimedia celebration’ looking back at the history of the Baptist Missionary Society (we acted, danced and had a really big video projector), meanwhile Steve Chalke and the Shout theatre company looked to the future.

from the BMS Annual Report 1993

I don’t know how many people saw the shows or what impact they really had on the people who came along but after touring 50 different venues ‘inspiring’ people and presenting them with a slice of history and a challenge to involvement, the following year I joined in some local evangelism, started at Bible college, and on leaving Bible college joined Wycliffe.
