NASHVILLE (BP) – Every year, the North American Mission Board (NAMB) invites church planting missionaries from around North America to come and be a part of the SBC annual meeting. While there, they receive training during events like the Send Network Breakfast, but the main purpose is to help them meet and connect with their Southern Baptist family.
“It’s important for our planters to be with the churches who support them through things like the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering and the Cooperative Program,” said Noah Oldham, a senior director in NAMB’s Send Network. “NAMB set up a virtual prayer experience for Southern Baptists where they were able to do a virtual prayer walk through planters’ neighborhoods, and some of those planters were there in person to meet their SBC family face tos face.”
NAMB especially seeks to invite those who have never been a part of an SBC annual meeting so that they can see the overall value of belonging to the Southern Baptist Convention. NAMB provides some financial assistance so that it’s not too much of a burden, but those who decide to come must cover the cost of travel.
