If you are planning to attend the 2015 Baptist General Convention of Texas annual meeting Nov. 8-10 at Dr Pepper Arena in Frisco, I encourage you to come by the Texas Baptist Bivocational/Small Church Association exhibit booth.We would love the opportunity to visit with you and share the many ministry resources we can offer to you pastors and churches who are serving our Lord in the small-church mission field.
We also invite you to share with us your ministry needs, such as personal health care, church administration, staffing, education, evangelism and the many other needs that arise in small-church ministry.
If you are seeking to further your education in ministry, please come by our booth. We are giving away a few select scholarships to participate in the certificate program at Baylor University’s Truett Theological Seminary. We also will provide select scholarships to attend the 30th annual Texas Baptist Bivocational/Small Church Conference next summer, July 15-16 on the campus of Dallas Baptist University.
I look forward to visiting with you at Texas Baptists’ annual meeting or upon an invitation to visit your church or association. We are here to serve you as you serve the Lord.
Remember, the Lord has called you to serve, but he has not called you to serve alone. Visit our website, www.bivocational.com, for more information on how the Bivocational/Small Church Association can minister and serve you.
Richard Ray is executive director of the Bivocational/Small Church Association and director of missions for the Tri-Rivers Baptist Area. You can reach him at email@example.com.
