ST. LOUIS (BP)–Three events are scheduled during the 2002 Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting to extend appreciation to FAITH pastors and to give pastors of non-FAITH churches more information about the strategy. The FAITH/Sunday School area of LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention will sponsor all three events.
A celebration and thank you reception will be Monday evening, June 10, for all pastors whose churches have participated in the FAITH Sunday School evangelism strategy. The celebration in rooms 240-242, level two, of America’s Center in St. Louis will immediately follow the close of the SBC Pastors’ Conference.
A new event, a FAITH Force Multipliers’ lunch meeting for FAITH-trained pastors, will be Tuesday, June 11, immediately following the morning session of the SBC annual meeting. This free event will be at the Adam’s Mark Hotel in sections A-C of the Promenade Ballroom. Shuttle service will be provided. Requests are limited to a total of 500 persons. Major General William G. Boykin, head of the U.S. Army’s Special Forces, will be the speaker.
Pastors of non-FAITH churches who want to learn more about how the FAITH/Sunday School evangelism strategy can work in their congregations and help their churches grow are invited to a free FAITH awareness luncheon. Requests are limited to a total of 300 persons for the Tuesday, June 11, event during the convention meeting lunch break in rooms 240-242, level 2, of the America’s Center.
While there is no charge for either luncheon, tickets are required for admission. On Sunday, June 9, from 4-9 p.m., tickets will be available at the FAITH information table in the SBC registration area. On Monday, June 11, from 8 a.m.-9 p.m., tickets will be available in the FAITH booth in the exhibit hall.
