Joining God in the World
A Fresh Look at Missions and Evangelism

Tuesday, February 1, 2011
First Baptist, Graham

 

A strong emphasis on evangelism and missions, at home and around the world, has shaped our identity as North Carolina Fellowship Baptists. There is broad agreement that we are committed to evangelism and missions. How we pursue evangelism and missions as we embark on the fifth Baptist century is less clear. Methods that worked thirty years ago don't seem to be (or aren't) as effective.

At the same time, Christians are not satisfied to franchise the global missions effort to paid professionals - they want hands-on involvement. In addition, a new term has entered the conversation that is embraced by some and seen as faddish by others: missional.  

What is the future of evangelism and missions for Fellowship Baptists in North Carolina and beyond? What can we learn from our history and heritage that will help us chart a new course? What can we learn from sister congregations about practices and approaches that are faithful to our heritage, consistent with our identity, and relevant to today's changing times? This convocation, for pastors, staff ministers and lay leaders in congregations will address these issues and more.
