Vision Day — Multiplying Ethnic Congregational Expressions

January 15, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Register for Vision Day lunch and speakers at https://goo.gl/forms/v58ZZMQ76dEnsTcB2.

Robbie McAllister, Ryan Dupree, and George Bullard will speak about the 15 non-English language and/or non-Anglo culture immigrant or diaspora groups with organized fellowships/associations in the Columbia area, and the potential for Christian ministry among them. Currently CMBA has congregations among Hispanics, Asian Indians, Koreans, and Burmese. We have emerging opportunities to expand into six or seven other groups. Needed are sponsoring churches who would focus on one of the groups of people who have settled in our area.

We also have a great need to be International Ministry Mobilizers (IMM) who are volunteers who will seek to connect for an ongoing relationship with the many international — especially students — who are in our area for a season or long-term. Through various organizations — including our own Baptist Campus Ministry — there are regular gatherings with which IMM could connect.

Each person present will receive a free copy of the manual Peoples Next Door NC: A Manual for Discovery and Engagement. This 40-page manual was developed by the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and is being provided to those in attendance by the SC Baptist Convention. Peoples Next Door NC can help congregations learn how to go discover and engage people group communities in our associational area. People present will also be offered an opportunity to participate in more in-depth training with Robbie McAllister and Ryan Dupree.

Multiplying Congregations is a strategy of CMBA that focuses on starting new congregational expressions through various strategies for the multiplication of congregations to reach preChristians, unchurched, underchurched, and dechurched people.
