Thank you to all of our churches who moved their evening service to Mount Home this past Sunday evening for our Annual CRBA Worship Celebration and Fall meeting. We had a glorious time with over 500 people participating for which God receives Glory. Thank you Mount Home for being a wonderful host. Also, thank you Doug Goforth for leading the business portion as the moderator of our decision. You did an awesome job!
We’ve heard the studies and the jokes, but this generation of young adults are not who you might think they are. If we’re going to reach them we first have to understand them.
- Intentional Discipleship: Developing a Pathway to Spiritual Maturity –Jason Koon
In our current culture, Discipleship is not going to happen by accident. Churches are going to have to develop intentional pathways to lead their people Spiritual Maturity.
- MasterLife: Using the MasterLife Curriculum to Make Disciples who Make Disciples –Shawn Thomas
Simple, biblical, effective, these are the three most important qualities in a good Discipleship ministry. Master life is a simple, biblical, effective curriculum your Church can use to teach people to become multiplying Disciples of Jesus.
- Membership Matters: Taking Church Membership Seriously Again –Shawn Thomas
One of the foundational principles in the Baptist movement has been regenerate Church membership (making sure the membership of the Church is actually the membership of the Church). If we don’t get this right, everything else we do will be built on a faulty foundation.
- Sunday School Mentoring –Robby Smith
How do you turn a Sunday School teacher into a life-changing Disciple maker? It takes work and intentionality, but you can teach them how.
