Hello, BRN Family! It’s good to be with you today!

In just a few days, on October 5, we will host our very first Accelerate Conference, which is the new name for the annual meeting for the Baptist Resource Network and its Southern Baptist churches throughout Pennsylvania and South Jersey.

We are very excited about the opportunity to meet together again!

To that end, I want to share a couple key deadlines for you:

Deadline 1: Meals

The deadline to preregister for meals is Friday, September 24 at midnight. After that day, you may still register for the conference, but not for any of the hotel meals. We especially urge you to preregister for dinner, where you will have the opportunity to view a dinner performance by local artists, Piercing Word. This theater ministry will present a word for word performance of The Sermon on the Mount. Please note: a love offering for the traveling team will be taken.

Deadline 2: PreRegistration

The deadline to preregister for the conference is Wednesday, September 29. If you miss this registration opportunity, please feel free to register at the door, starting at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, October 5.

To remind you, this all-day gathering will be at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel in Harrisburg. The day will begin with a brief business session at 9 a.m., followed by a full day of worship and engaging conference content.

This year’s conference is based on the theme #LovePASJ, a three-phase initiative that seeks to accelerate a Kingdom movement of Baptist Resource Network churches loving their neighbors in such a way that the statistic of 14 million lost people in PA/SJ is dramatically reduced — or even abolished!

We are praying participants will walk away inspired to love their neighbors more deeply and to join other churches all across our region in making a greater impact for the Gospel.

Sign up today at acceleratepasj.com. We are looking forward to serving you! Thanks for listening in today. May God bless you!
