Saturday, March 12 -- 8:30-12:00 -- Evangelism Training with Dr. Tom Johnston (Midwestern Seminary). If you are a person who has responsibility for training in evangelism...or if you are wanting training in evangelism...this is a time for you! Registration will begin at 8:00 AM...training begins at 8:30.
Sunday, March 13 -- Simultaneous Evangelism in your church. We would encourage each of our churches to have an emphasis on evangelistic outreach on Sunday! Our prayer is that each of our churches would present messages that would emphasize salvation and evangelism.
Monday and Tuesday, March 14 and 15 -- Evangelism Rallies at FBC, Osceola. At 7:00 each evening Bear Grant (Student at Southwestern Seminary) will be speaking with an emphasis on evangelism. Due to his wife's medical needs at this time, Dr. Matt Queen will not be speaking.
I hope you will plan to be there! And that you plan to bring a group of folks with you!
Fellowship Baptist Association is a network of Southern Baptist Convention and Missouri Baptist Convention churches committed to work together in an effort to follow the Great Commandment and fulfill the Great Commission. Our churches are primarily located in Benton, Hickory, and St. Clair counties in the great state of Missouri.....and we hope you'll consider making one of them your church home!!
A seminary professor once asked a question of some international students, "What do you understand the term 'Fellowship' to mean?" There was a moment of silence and one finally said, "Fellows in the same ship?" Now, isn't that even more true than what we usually think of "Fellowship?"! I hope as you think of Fellowship Baptist Association, it's in the light of this unique definition....that we are here together.....serving Christ and one another.
