ALEXANDRIA, La. (LBM) – The Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists has planned a special online outreach event Easter weekend.
The one-hour program will be livestreamed on Facebook, April 9 at 7 p.m., and will be available on-demand throughout the weekend. The special broadcast will feature music and a message by COSBE President Sammy Tippit, who will co-host the meeting with Richard Hamlet, president and CEO of Global Ministries Foundation in Memphis, Tenn.
The event, “Covered by the Cross,” will feature the powerful stories of men and women who found a place of hope at the cross.
Luke Hockenjos of Haughton, and Keith Fordham and Kim Stanely, both of Fayetteville, Ga., are among those who will share their testimonies. Musicians Joe and Kim Stanley, Russell and Kristi Johnson, all of Conway, S.C., and Amy Stockwell, of Katy, Texas, will lead a time of worship by song. Tippit will conclude the evening with an invitation to follow Christ.
COSBE has asked for churches, associations and state conventions to partner and participate in the effort by sharing the video on their websites or Facebook pages, or by requesting a link for the organization’s Vimeo channel that also will livestream the event.
Churches also can download the broadcast and create a short introductory video by their pastors that can be uploaded to their social media sites.
Churches that use Vimeo or incorporate the video introduction from their pastor are requested to inform Tippit so COSBE can track the event.
