Innovative missions thought leader coming to Olivet Nov. 2

BOURBONNAIS, IL – Andrew Scott is an innovative missions thought leader, dedicated to helping people connect to their God-given purpose.

On Nov. 2, he will share his mission and message at Olivet Nazarene University. The public is welcome to join the University community for what promises to be an inspiring presentation. There is no admission charge.

Sponsored by The McGraw School of Business at Olivet and Shine.FM, Scott will share a message that calls for a bold new era of missions. His vision has inspired a groundswell movement of thousands of believers utilizing their vocation in the global marketplace to see the gospel spread to the least-reached. He sees every Christian - engineer, baker, pastor or other - as God's global image bearer. Scott will also be a guest on Shine.FM during his visit to Olivet.

The author of the highly acclaimed Scatter: Go Therefore and Take Your Job with You from Moody Publishers, Scott is also the president and CEO of Operation Mobilization. According to Scott's research, 2.8 billion people in our world today live outside of access to the gospel. That figure was 1.7 billion just a few decades ago, and 57,000 more are being added to that number daily.

Scott is also the visionary behind the rapidly-growing ScatterGlobal.com. Serving professionals, students and churches, ScatterGlobal.com is one initiative of Operation Mobilization dedicated to mobilizing Jesus followers from many professions. The goal is to help them intentionally pursue their vocations in the least-reached marketplaces of the world.

Since leaving his home of Northern Ireland at age 19, Scott's work has taken him to more than 75 countries. He is passionate about playing and watching soccer, as well as showing and breeding Staffordshire Bull Terriers. He and his wife, Sharon, recently celebrated 25 years of marriage and enjoy spending time with their two adult children.

There is no admission charge. To register and for more information about the event, contact Professor Chris Perez at caperez2@olivet.edu or 815-928-5579.
