MissionInsight Training

MissionInsight is a tool that enables churches to better understand their congregations and community at large and is free to each of our CRBA churches. It uniquely integrates information about your congregation and visitors with demographic and analytical tools to help you solve your most complex strategic missional challenges. Imagine knowing which projects are most needed ahead of time, what is needed in your neighborhood and what may be changing in your community before those changes happen, enabling you to adapt your future missions accordingly. This training will be offered on Wednesday, December 18th, at 10 a.m. at our CRBA office in Morganton. This free training will be conducted by specialist Chuck Campbell from the Baptist Convention of North Carolina. Whether a pastor, staff member or church leader, this training will help you as you plan to reduce lostness in your community. While this is free, each person is encouraged to call our CRBA office at 828-437-0137 so we can help you be prepared for this wonderful training.

How do you take a new Christian and help them to become a reproducing disciple? That is a question many have asked and have had difficulty finding the answer. To help our leaders train their church members to become reproducing disciples we will train participating pastors/leaders for 10 weeks beginning January 21st at 10 a.m. at our CRBA office. We (Chuck Campbell and I) will be demonstrating the G3 discipleship tool (The Imperative Life of a Christ Follower) for the purpose of duplicating it in our CRBA churches. We will first triain pastors and staff and then will offer it to other leaders. If you are interested in being trained in using this wonderful discipleship tool; meeting weekly for ten weeks and then reproducing it in others, please give us a call at our CRBA office.
