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

We are excited about how this year’s Accelerate Conference is shaping up, and I want to invite you to join us! This year’s gathering will be held on October 3 at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel.

Our keynote speakers will be myself and Jeff Christopherson, executive director of the Canadian National Baptist Convention. Christian Recording Artist Jermaine Dolly, who also leads worship at Philadelphia’s Ezekiel Baptist Church, will lead our worship.

A myriad of speakers in our breakout sessions will focus on the “Seven Temptations of the Western Church,” as explained in Jeff Christopherson’s book, “Once You See.” Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) will also present a breakout on how to confront the rapid embrace of radical ideas and activism surrounding gender ideology. We will record all of the breakout sessions so you won’t miss anything!

But there is more! We are also excited to share with you about three new opportunities that have been added to the schedule: On Monday evening, we will host a Dessert Meet and Greet with our keynote speaker, Jeff Christopherson. Jeff is the author of Kingdom First, Kingdom Matrix, Venal Dogmata, and Once You See. Jeff’s Kingdom heart has been expressed throughout his ministry.

On Tuesday morning, we will host a “Dangers Facing the Church” Breakfast presented by the Pennsylvania Family Institute. Kurt Weaver, Director of Strategic Partnerships for the Institute, will explore the dangers–and gospel opportunities–facing today’s church, which now finds itself in a post-Christian and hostile world.

And on Tuesday evening, we will host a BRN Family Celebration Banquet, which will feature NAMB “musicianaries,” Eric and Anissa Haney, and a time to celebrate several BRN churches for their work in God’s Kingdom. This is bound to be a fun night that you won’t want to miss!

Would you please join us for this year’s Accelerate Conference? Please consider bringing your church leaders with you. Registration is open at acceleratepasj.com. We look forward to seeing you! And as always, thanks for listening in today. May God bless you!
