Shibley will be part of the closing ceremonies of the event tomorrow. He says, “It is my privaledge tomorrow, to challenge these young people at the end of this 12 hour day of prayer and fasting and seeking the face of the Lord, to go to the nations of the earth and finally see our Lord’s Great Commission fulfilled.

He’s has a special prayer for the event. “I am asking the Lord, and many others are as well, that a new student volunteer movement will erupt and that young people all over this country will get a vision for the Great Commission and commit themselves to seeing it fulfilled in their lifetime.”
