Using Sunday School to Reach

College Students

 Monday, September 15, 2014
6:30 p.m.
MBA office


What does it take to reach…

college students? 

What are they looking for in a church and/or Sunday School? Are there certain elements that are vital in reaching and keeping college students? These are a few of the questions that will be dealt with in this conference. College students will not come just because a class is offered. We must intentionally reach out to them.

This conference is designed for pastors, staff, those that are presently working with college  students, and those that may be interested in working with college students. 

State missionary Jamie Baldwin will lead this conference.

 Preregister here, or by contacting the MBA office no later than Thursday, September 11.

Church Legal Issues

Date:  Tuesday, September 16, 2014
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Place: MBA office

Churches are exposed to the risk of being sued. Various requirements are imposed on us by the state and federal governments, and churches sometimes fail to comply. Churches have been hit with judgments, some of which have been multi-million dollar judgments. They have been subjected to government intrusion into their internal dealings. The main reason this happens is church leaders were operating with no knowledge of the legal requirements. The conference deals directly with what can be done to protect yourselves.

State missionary Jim Swedenburg will lead this conference.

Although not required to attend, please pre-register here, or by contacting the MBA office no later than Thursday, September 11.
