Annual Meeting to emphasize disciple-making
    October 7 2015 by Chad Austin BSC Communications

    Messengers and attendees at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSC) will be encouraged and challenged to “echo” the love and message of Jesus to others during this year’s meeting.
     
    “Echo: Reproducing Gospel Life in Others” is the theme for this year’s annual meeting, scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 2-3 at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro. The theme is based on 2 Timothy 2:2 which describes the disciple-making process and how it is passed on from generation to generation.

    In the theme verse, the Apostle Paul admonishes his young apprentice Timothy to take the truths of God that he had learned from Paul and teach those truths to others who would, in turn, teach them to others, as well. The passage reveals a pattern for disciple-making that involves investing one’s life in others so that the gospel and its application to life is continually reproduced in subsequent generations.
     
    This year’s theme aligns with the BSC’s strategy of impacting lostness through disciple-making and was selected by members of the BSC Committee on Convention Meetings after much prayer and deliberation.
     
    “The theme of the 2015 Annual Meeting has been derived with the desire for all churches within the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina to ‘echo’ the very words of Paul,” said Josh Phillips, chair of the Committee on Convention Meetings. “The BSCNC has become very intentional in its approach to disciple-making. The theme of these year’s Annual meeting is intended to promote and support the direction that our great convention is heading.”
     
    Timmy Blair Sr., BSC president and pastor of Piney Grove Chapel Baptist Church in Angier, will deliver the annual president’s address sermon on Monday evening. Lee Pigg, senior pastor of Hopewell Baptist Church in Monroe, will deliver the convention sermon Tuesday night.
     
    Messengers will also hear an update from BSC Executive Director-Treasurer Milton A. Hollifield Jr. during the Tuesday morning session.
     
    In addition, representatives from a variety of BSC ministries, as well as other ministries and organizations, will be on hand in the exhibit halls to answer questions, network and explore ministry partnership opportunities.
     
    Throughout the entire schedule of annual meeting activities, attendees will be equipped and encouraged to make disciples in the everyday rhythms and routines of daily life. Several breakout sessions conducted by convention staff members, pastors, denominational leaders, lay leaders and others will provide biblical and practical ideas about how to “echo” the gospel and reproduce gospel life in others based on the example of Jesus and the words of Paul.
     
    Breakout sessions will cover topics that include evangelism, church renewal, church revitalization, missions, prayer, small groups, women’s ministry and more.
