WEST MONROE, La. (LBM) – Louisiana Baptists will have two opportunities to refocus and strengthen discipleship efforts during next month’s ReGroup events for Sunday school and small group leaders.
ReGroup Conference (live) is scheduled for Aug. 14 at McClendon Baptist Church in West Monroe, with Digital ReGroup presented on Aug. 16 and 17 in a virtual format. ReGroup events focus on four areas – sharing the Gospel, developing biblical community, helping believers mature spiritually, and equipping believers to live missionally, with special emphasis on maximizing Gospel impact.
When last year’s conference was moved from an in-person format to an all-virtual platform because of concerns brought about by the coronavirus outbreak, it experienced a great response, according to Louisiana Baptist Sunday school/discipleship strategist Sean Keith.
“Obviously, we are excited to offer both live and digital events this year,” Keith told the Baptist Message. “ReGroup is the premiere training event for our church lay leaders. Both events will feature well-known ministry specialists sharing practical, innovative and encouraging approaches to small group health.”
Allan Taylor, executive pastor of ministries at First Baptist Church in Concord, Tennessee, will be the keynote speaker for the live conference. Mike Harland, associate pastor of worship at First Baptist Church in Jackson, Mississippi, will serve as worship leader.
Steve Horn, Louisiana Baptist executive director, will host Digital ReGroup.
Both conferences will feature sessions for pastors, Sunday school directors, small group leaders, church staff, preschool, children and youth leaders, discipleship leaders and Bible study leaders.
ReGroup Conference (live) at McClendon Baptist, Aug. 14, will also feature a track for Hispanic pastors and church members.
