Dear Friends in Christ,

We personally invite you to the South Asian Global Convention 2009 (SAGC 2009) held in the beautiful city of Singapore.

SAGC 2009 will have excellent plenary speakers, dynamic seminar leaders and anointed worship teams. But SAGC 2009 really is about . . . YOU – inspiring and mobilizing YOU for local and global missions.

Let’s believe God for an awesome time together as we realize the objectives of SAGC 2009. So don’t miss this opportunity. Spread the word around and see you in Singapore July 22-26, 2009.

With every blessing to you,

VISION

The vision for South Asian Connection and South Asian Global Convention began in prayer.

In July of 2001, God laid a vision in the hearts of various leaders of the South Asian Diaspora for a new and relevant work aimed at the present and next generation of Christian South Asian Youth and Young Adults.

With this goal in mind, a core group was formed of South Asian ministry leaders and advisory council members from different countries and denominations. These individuals joined their hearts in fervent prayer for God's wisdom and creativity to turn this vision into a reality.

South Asian Connection and the first South Asian Global Convention 2004 in Vancouver, Canada and the second South Asian Global Convention 2007 in London, UK and  South Asian Global Convention 2009 in Singapore is a present day reality to the glory of God.
