Hi BRN Family, Elizabeth here and it’s time for the March Top 5!
#1- The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering and Week of Prayer is March 5-12. One hundred percent of gifts are used to support thousands of Southern Baptist missionaries serving across the United States and Canada. I urge you to pray for our North American missionaries and challenge your church to give and support their work through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. Thank you.
#2- Speaking of Easter, the Baptist Resource Network has evangelism grants available to help churches with their Easter outreach. Do you have an evangelism project or an evangelism training in mind, but are short on the resources to accomplish it? Just let us know how we can help. Contact the Helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit online at brnunited.org/grant to learn more.
#3: Speaking of Evangelism, the March 20 Advance Evangelism Conference is almost here! You won’t want to miss our speakers, Dr. Nathan Lorick, Executive Director for the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention; J.J. Washington, Personal Evangelism Director, North American Mission Board; and Dr. Anthony Hurst, Part-Time Professor at Cairn University, Langhorne, Pennsylvania. Registration will close on Wednesday, March 15 at midnight. Sign up today at advancepasj.com.
#4: Iron Sharpens Iron. Nine topics. Nine months. Iron Sharpens Iron is a virtual conversation series that will take place at 3 p.m. on the second Monday of every month through November. It is designed to give BRN pastors the space to talk to other BRN pastors about evangelism, discipleship, leadership development, compassion ministry, reaching the next generation, and other prominent ministry topics. This month’s topic, to be held March 13, is discipleship. Sign up today at brnunited.org/events.
#5: Mark Sunday, April 16, on your calendars because it’s the day Southern Baptists are setting aside as Baptism Sunday this year! Churches are encouraged to call their people to respond to the gospel, celebrate professions of faith in response to evangelism, and encourage new believers to take their next step in their walk with Jesus. Churches are also encouraged to use the hashtag #FillTheTank on social media to share video/photographs from their services, so the Southern Baptist family can celebrate with them! Thank you!
That’s all for March. Thanks for watching, BRN Family. We appreciate you and we are thankful for you!
