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

I wanted to take the time to ask you to save the date for a very important gathering that is happening this fall. On Tuesday, October 5, the BRN will host its inaugural Accelerate Conference at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel in Harrisburg.

What is the Accelerate Conference? Well, I am glad you asked!

The Accelerate Conference is the annual business session and gathering for the Baptist Resource Network’s Southern Baptist churches throughout Pennsylvania and South Jersey. Expanding on previous annual meetings, participants will notice a decidedly different atmosphere for this year’s annual gathering of churches.

For one, the event has been shortened to one day, beginning with a brief business session at 9 a.m., followed by a full day of worship and engaging content, all which seek to help churches accelerate Kingdom movement across our region.

Two, the meeting has been moved to a month earlier — now in October instead of November, to better accommodate schedules and hotel availability. So, mark your calendars now so you won’t miss it!

Three, the meeting will feel more like … well, a conference!

Based on the theme #LovePASJ, this conference, which features keynote presentations by Will Mancini, the founder of the Future Church Co., will equip churches to KNOW their communities and neighborhoods so they may love them in Christ’s name.

We want participants to 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.

This year’s conference will also feature:

  • several ministry breakout sessions,
  • shared meal times,
  • worship led by the worship band, “Seven” of Messiah University, and
  • a dinner performance by local performing artists, Piercing Word.

Attendees may choose to stay overnight for an extended time of rest or they can travel home back to their families and ministries. It’s up to you!

Early bird registration is now available at acceleratepasj.com. Please sign up today, We are looking forward to serving you! Thanks for listening in today. May God bless you!
