NEW ORLEANS – “Do this. It works!”
Church leaders in Louisiana on Oct. 10-11 are invited to attend Unlimited Leadership: A Conference for the Leaders of Churches under 250 at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
This conference hosted by Unlimited Partnerships is specifically designed to help leaders of smaller churches learn how other small churches are applying big principles with great success.
“When I was on staff at Prestonwood Baptist Church we used to hold conferences and tell attendees, ‘This is what we are doing, but this will probably not work in your context,’” said Bill Taylor, president of Unlimited Partnerships. “Unlimited Leadership is a conference where we can say, ‘Do this. It works!’”
The conference will feature keynote speakers Jimmy Draper, president emeritus of LifeWay Christian Resources, Randy Hales, director of missions for Webster-Claiborne and Bienville Baptist Associations, and Allan Taylor, Minister of Education at First Baptist Church of Woodstock, Ga., where SBC President Johnny Hunt is pastor.
Sessions will be taught by NOBTS students who also are serving as ministers of education at local churches, New Orleans area pastors, and mentoring Christian educators from across the nation.
Sessions include Sunday School that Works, the Key to Building a Growing Bible Study, Building Effective Ministries for Children, Multiplying the Pastor’s Ministry through Partnerships, Planning Big for Smaller Churches, Acts 1:8 Strategy for Reaching the World, and The Small Church is the Best Small Group.
The conference cost is $25, which covers the conference and dinner on Friday night.
Registration is available before the conference on the Internet at www.providencelearningcenter.com.
This conference is being sponsored by the Leavell Center for Evangelism and Church Health at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and Unlimited Partnerships. Unlimited Partnerships is a partnership between the Louisiana Baptist Convention, North American Missions Board, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, Bill Taylor and Associates, and the Baptist Association of Greater New Orleans.
This partnership program places seminary students on staff in Gulf Coast area churches to help with evangelism and discipleship while enlisting sponsoring churches to provide the salary and mentoring.
