The Baptist State Convention of North Carolina's (BSC) Executive Committee approved a plan April 11 to "tear down silos," streamline the organization and better assist churches in making disciples, evangelism and church planting among people groups of every ethnicity and cultural context. See story
The plan was passed by the BSC Board of Directors in May (see story
) and will be coming before the messengers at the BSC annual meeting in Greensboro in November.
The Convention has released and is releasing columns explaining the reasoning behind different portions of its strategy. See list below.
