Saturday Morning Workshops
Church Planting and Church Growth—Dr. George Bullard—Room 201: Planting a church and creating an environment for church growth takes strategic planning, resources, and hard work. In this session, we will discuss strategic planning from the 40-foot level that we will help you whether you are starting a new church or revitalizing an established church. We will cover vision plus intentionality plus resources.
Evangelism and Discipleship Training—Dr. Ken Weathersby—Room 202: Evangelism and discipleship are essential to the mission of the church. Yet, many of us do not know what to do or where to start. In this session, we will learn about upreach, inreach and outreach and how all three components work together in making disciples throughout the world.
Sisters Who Care—Ms. Donna Britt Room 204: Sisters Who Care® (SWC) is part of a national organization of Baptist women, aged 18 and above, of all races, ethnic backgrounds, and classes. The national organization is Women on Mission® — an expression of Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) — which is a church-based organization that seeks to enable women to understand the call of missions, to embrace that call, then to live it out by growing spiritually toward a missions lifestyle and becoming involved in mission action.
Leadership Training (Elders, Deacons, Trustees)—Pastor Andre Melvin—Room 205: In this session, we will work together to understand our distinct roles as elders, deacons, and trustees. We will also explore the fundamental attributes of leaders: character, competency, availability, and teachability.
Children Ministry/Youth Ministry—Pastor Ricky Simmons—Room 302: Children and youth ministry leaders need the critical skills of yearly strategic planning, budgeting and making the ask. In this session, we will learn about those critical skills as well as three attributes of a children and youth ministry leader: accessibility, vulnerability, and accountability.
Young Adults—Pastor Darryl Gaddy—Room 304: In this session, we will learn how to add value to young adults. Teach them how to launch, help them discover their career path, train them in public speaking and “responsible responsibility.” Learn when and how to turn over the keys so that our young adults can thrive.
This conference is made possible by the faithful financial contributions of the churches of the Columbia Metro Baptist Association and by the gifts to the Janie Chapman Offering for State Missions which is a missions emphasis of the South Carolina WMU who is a sponsor of Sisters Who Care.
