Join us in September for a Virtual Missions Conference.
The 2020 General Baptist M&M Summit became a victim of COVID-19 and was cancelled. You may not know that M&M stands for Missions and Ministry, but missions has been an integral component of the Summit since its inception. General Baptist International Ministries places a high emphasis on the Summit each year offering many breakout sessions and offering General Baptist the opportunity to mingle with international missionaries and guests. We did not want to miss out on that opportunity in 2020, and so we asked each missionary family to produce a “break out” session for us to use in a “Virtual Missions Conference.”
The possibilities are endless but here are three suggestions:
- Personal or small group. The video presentations and papers will be online, downloadable, and available for your personal or small group as you desire. We suggest the month of September.
- Local Church Missions Conference: This could be over several days, a weekend, Wednesday nights, Sunday School, etc. The videos will be downloadable, and Word documents will be available for your own branding. Again we recommend September.
- Facebook Live: A schedule will be published when each of these videos will premiere on Facebook live. These events will take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings in September. As much as possible, we hope that the presenter will be available to join the “Live” event in order to chat with participants (the COVID-19 version of mingle).
Follow the links below to find the videos, handouts, and for some speakers additional information. Use them as you wish: individual, small group, church wide conference, Sunday School, really the sky is the limit.
Don’t forget that Ed Stevens Day is on September 20, 2020. This year the offering will go to do some work on the campus of the Matigsalug Bible Institute which prepares pastors for indigenous ministry throughout the Philippine island of Mindanao.
The current issue of the General Baptist Messenger will introduce you to the various articles of the conference. You can find it here.
