Following the 93rd annual Missions Conference, students engaged in extensive prayer and worship to strengthen their walks with Christ. As a common occurrence, extended worship after night sessions were conducted. The conference, however, had more to offer outside of Chase Gymnasium. 

On March 23, around 40 students were baptized in the Talbot East pool. Berenice Carrasco, junior art major, announced that a group of Missions Conference volunteers would be performing baptisms for anyone who wanted to join. 

24-hour worship occurred in the Student Union Building during and after the Missions Conference concluded. The prayer and worship in the SUB continued Monday but became intermittent. 

President Barry Corey released a statement regarding all the events during and after the Missions Conference. 

“It’s been an exhilarating week,” Corey said in an email to the Biola community. “You filled the gymnasium and venues for our 93rd Missions Conference, unlike any I have experienced in my sixteen years at Biola.”
