What Does Church Planting Have To Do With You And Your Church?

PA Logo-01

There is a lot of talk about church planting across the Southern Baptist Convention landscape. Did you ever wonder what all this has to do with you and your church?

Perhaps there is an underserved group of people within driving distance of your church gathering who do not have adequate access to the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

You may be saying, “I would not even know how to start a new church!”

Well, here is a training event to answer all those questions about how to serve as the sending, sponsoring, mothering church for a new church plant:

Churches Planting Churches Training, Friday and Saturday, April 28-29, 2017, First Baptist Church, 1203 W. Pushmataha St., Butler

Churches Planting Churches Training is designed to examine the values underlying the rationale for becoming a sending church. This training is designed for a church that is seeking to learn how to start a new church or churches from the “sending” church perspective. The six steps necessary to make this a reality will be taught in detail.

Many people are fearful of the whole idea of planting a church because they have no idea as to how they would go about it. Information dispels anxiety.

Sessions will begin on Friday at 6 p.m. with dinner and conclude on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. This event is planned in partnership with Terry Long, director of missions, Choctaw Baptist Association.

Cost: $25 per person for the two-day training. Registration is required.
