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

#1- The annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention, to be held at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee, is days away. We urge those attending to pre-register as a messenger or an invited guest before arriving at the June 15-16 meeting. This year’s theme is “We Are Great Commission Baptists” as announced by SBC President J.D. Greear. Learn more at sbcannualmeeting.net.

#2- The Accelerate Conference, the annual business session and gathering of the Baptist Resource Network, is Tuesday, October 5. Early registration is now open. Based on the theme #LovePASJ, this inaugural conference, which seeks to accelerate Kingdom movement, will equip churches to KNOW their community and neighborhoods so they may love them in Christ’s name. You’ll hear from special guest, author and church consultant Will Mancini, and BRN Executive Director Barry Whitworth as well as a variety of breakout leaders. Learn more at www.acceleratepasj.com.

#3- What are your summer evangelism plans? The Baptist Resource Network would like to help you! Churches may apply for evangelism grants specifically to support and promote outreach events and evangelistic efforts. Does your church or church plant have an upcoming event or training that you think would qualify? Apply today at brnunited.org/resources/evangelism-grant.

#4- Speaking of outreaches, BRN United would love to feature your ideas and celebrate your successes. Maybe you have a creative VBS or summer camp. Maybe you are touching your neighborhoods in unique ways. Whatever it is, feel free to share your stories and photos through our online portal, brnunited.org/news-tips. Thank you!

#5- While the country discusses how to re-enter into businesses and other public spaces, the Baptist Resource Network’s Dr. Larry Anderson points to ten areas churches should consider as they reopen. Download the presentation and workbook, “Post-COVID Commandments: Practical Considerations for Hosting Post-Pandemic Church,” at https://www.brnunited.org/resources/post-covid-commandments.

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