NAMB to Highlight Compassion Ministry and Church Planting at SBC Annual Meeting

Pastors and others attending this year’s Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting in Phoenix will learn more about opportunities to engage their churches locally and throughout North America in compassion ministries as well as church planting efforts.

The North American Mission Board will highlight these opportunities at its Monday luncheon, June 12, for pastors and as part of its presentation at the annual meeting Tuesday afternoon. In addition, pastors and other individuals can become involved by visiting NAMB’s exhibit during the gathering.

“We want to help Southern Baptists send the hope of Christ to North America,” said NAMB President Kevin Ezell. “We help churches do that through our Send Relief compassion ministries and through Send Network, our church planting network. It is all about bringing people into a relationship with Jesus.”

Sunday evening, June 11, NAMB will co-host a city-wide Harvest America Crossover Crusade with Southern California evangelist Greg Laurie at the University of Phoenix stadium. Event coordinators hope to draw thousands of Arizona residents who will hear a Gospel presentation and be directed toward local churches for follow-up.

On that Monday, “Send Hope” will be the theme for NAMB’s annual Send Luncheon at noon during the SBC Pastors’ Conference. Laurie is scheduled to be featured at the event which will take place on Level 300 in Room West 301A/B/C. Attendees must register for a free ticket in advance at

Luncheon attendees will hear testimonies from people who have come to faith in Christ and learn more about NAMB resources that can help them lead their churches to be more evangelistically focused.
