New to the GARBC Conference this year are two modules. These modules are incredible opportunities to enhance your ministry through seminary-level teaching at an affordable price!
Preaching Christ from the Old Testament, a Preconference Module
Date: Tuesday, June 28 at 1:30 p.m.
Cost: $45, includes materials and resources
Preaching Christ from the Old Testament demands an ability to not only handle textual details in context, but to also think theologically across the Biblical canon. This three-hour study group is designed to be an interactive session that allows participants the opportunity to dig into a chosen passage, wrestle with textual details, and think theologically in a whole-Bible way about how to handle references to or inferences about Christ in the Old Testament. Participants will be guided in this discovery by our guest presenter, Dr. Steven Mathewson, author of The Art of Preaching Old Testament Narrative (2002) and Joshua and Judges (The People’s Bible Commentary, 2003) and pastor of CrossLife Evangelical Free Church in Libertyville, Illinois.
Growing Churches Module
Date: Thursday, June 30 at 2:00 p.m.
Cost: FREE, offered by Regular Baptist Churches as part of the new Regular Baptist Church Planting initiative
The time for church planting is now! Any established congregation can catch the vision for church planting, cultivate the passion among its members, and actually do it. Becoming a reproducing church will have a dramatic, life-changing impact on your local ministry. Join Clare Jewell, regional director with ABWE, and Ken Davis, director of Project Jerusalem and chairman of the church planting council with Baptist Mid-Missions, in this practical “how-to” module to learn the action steps a church of any size can take to become a reproducing church.
