Hello, BRN Family. It’s good to be with you today. I wanted to share some good news with you.

Just last week, at their annual workshop in New Orleans, the Baptist Communicators Association awarded our Communications Director Shannon Baker a First Place Award in the Public Relations and Development Division in its awards competition.

Shannon was recognized for her efforts in developing the Phase 1 kit for #LovePASJ by an independent panel of judges from a variety of professional communications firms and roles in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The boxed kit, Phase 1 of BRN’s new missional framework for engaging neighbors in this region, contained several materials on exegesis and prayerwalking, including prayer guides, Bible studies, training materials, and actual surveys, among other items.

It is part of a three-phase initiative to encourage churches to love their neighbors through exegesis and prayerwalking, evangelism and compassion ministry, and intentional discipleship and leadership development. Already, Shannon and the BRN team are working on the materials for the second phase of the #LovePASJ initiative, which will be unveiled at the BRN’s October 4 Accelerate Conference.

Our entire team seeks to help churches accelerate Kingdom movement– a movement that ultimately will reveal Christ to the 14 million people in our region who do not yet know Him.

I commend our whole team for their hard work, dedication, and visionary thinking. May this just be the beginning of even greater things ahead! It’s not too late to get involved with the #LovePASJ initiative. Simply go to lovepasj.com to start the process. We’re cheering you on! God bless you!
