    November 2 2011 by BSC Communications

    Tuesday afternoon Nov. 8 during the Baptist State Convention annual meeting, there are 19 breakout sessions planned.
    • Church Renewal by Bob Foy (Tidewater) – The Church Renewal Journey is a congregational lay-led strategy for awakening sleeping churches, equipping and discipling their members, and commissioning them as church missionaries back into their marketplace and outside the church walls.
    • Conversations that Count: Women’s Evangelism by Ashley Allen (Victoria A) – Do you desire to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with women you encounter on a daily basis, but don’t know where to start?

Focusing on hope, believe, turn, and call, participants will learn about women’s evangelism and how to share the gospel.
    • Music and Teenagers by Merrie Johnson (Grandover East) – Teenagers today base their identity on media, spending over seven and a half hours per day listening and watching. Four hours of that is spent with music alone. How can we help students discern what they are listening to with the message of Jesus Christ? This session will take a hard look at the largest influencer in the lives of students and how we as Christ followers can use music in developing a deeper walk with Christ, as well as an avenue in reaching students.
    • Sunday School in a Transformational Church by Phil Stone (Pebble Beach) – This is a ministry of transformational small communities that exists to assist the church in accomplishing its mission of making and growing disciples and transforming lives by the power of God. Participants will take away principles for transformational small communities, practical ways to create a disciple-making environment, and a strong emphasis on prayerful dependence.
    • Global Impact in North America by Michael Sowers (Augusta) – Do you want to know how your church can make a global impact by engaging in the major urban centers of North America? Come hear a panel of church planting catalysts, church planters and pastors engaged in urban centers discuss how to impact lostness in New York, Toronto and Boston.
    • Experience the Voyage … A Deeper Church-wide Discipleship Curriculum by Landon Horton (Victoria B) – Do you want to motivate your church members to grow deeper in their relationship with the Lord and give them the tools they need to make this a lifelong voyage?

Give your church members the tools they need to experience lifelong transformation. Register to win a free IPAD2. Drawing will be held at session.
    • The Minister’s Juggling Act by Eddie Thompson (Victoria C) – The demands of ministry can seem overwhelming at times. Pastors and their wives, along with church leaders, often feel like they are in a crazy juggling act – attempting to balance their family, their church, their spiritual walk, and sometimes even their own sanity. Unfortunately, the fallout continues to take a deep toll on our families and our churches. Don’t miss this encouraging and challenging session on balancing ministry and family. Remember, much is at stake!
