Hey BRN Family, Elizabeth here and it’s time for the December Top 5!

#1: Merry Christmas to you! ‘Tis the season for the Lottie Moon Christmas Week of Prayer and Offering for International Missions! 100% of your prayers and your generous gifts provide missionaries the services they need to live among the unreached peoples they serve. Will you pray about how you can help over 3,500 IMB missionaries serving throughout the world? Their work is only possible through your generosity. Resources are available at brnunited.org/lottie.

#2: This year’s Accelerate Conference lives on through replays located on our conference website. For your convenience, we’ve also converted each breakout session into a podcast episode, available on Spotify, Apple, Google, and Amazon Music. All the main conference sessions and breakout podcasts can be accessed at acceleratepasj.com.

#3: Speaking of conferences, registration is now open for BRN’s 2024 Advance Evangelism Conference. This conference features keynote speakers, Mark Croston, national director of Black church ministries at Lifeway Christian Resources, and Dr. David Wheeler, professor of Christian leadership and church ministries at Liberty University, plus several practical breakout sessions to help you and your church have a stronger evangelistic focus. Stay tuned to advancepasj.com for all the exciting details!

#4: Thank you to all who joined hands to make an eternal impact during Giving Tuesday on November 28! Please know it’s not too late to give. You can leave a legacy for your family and for Kingdom ministries through the BRN’s #LegacyPASJ endowment fund, which was created to help the BRN better aid churches in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in accelerating Kingdom movement. We urge you to pray and ask the Lord for guidance about financially giving through your resources and/or estate towards this endowment to provide critical resourcing and servicing to our churches and pastors. Learn more at brnunited.org/legacy.

#5: With Christmas right around the corner, we wanted to take the time to say thank you to the many leaders in our BRN Family. What you do really matters! As we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, know we also love celebrating you! To that end, we’d like to update our records to ensure we have your correct pastor and church anniversary dates. Please give a few minutes to help us out by filling out a short survey in your inbox or on brnunited.org’s home page. Thank you! And again, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas! May God bless your efforts this special season and beyond.

That’s all for December. Thanks for watching, BRN Family. We appreciate you and we are thankful for you!
