Fall 2024 Small Group/Making Disciples Seminar Interest Form - We Want to Hear From You

Dear Ministry Leaders:

Just as the Making a Difference Mobile grants brought churches together, the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions (ALSBOM) Office of Sunday School and Discipleship invites Mobile Baptists to create an event that would meet the needs of different churches with a team approach to training. I am looking for seven pastors who will connect and commit to provide a true associational training event. Imagine the leadership of seven churches meeting together for a specific training event that caters to your target audience. We set the date and location, and ALSBOM will supply the leaders and the resources for the event.

Let me know the needs of your church, your target audience, and which pastors and/or churches you wish to partner.

Some churches may want to get together for a Good to Great Workshop. While churches are offering several good things; what good thing needs to stop or be set aside for the Lord to do something great?

Other churches may need basic instruction to enlist and train new members to step up with confidence to lead a specific interest group. And others may be doing just fine, but need to get together to spur one another on to love and good deeds. Our Association exists to help each other in the ministry in which God called us, and we are stronger together. I encourage you to look at the resources on GroupLife Resources at https://makingdisciplesal.org/grouplife2024/.

Most training events are best scheduled prior to the new church year in the fall.

Please enroll myself _____________________________________, my church _________________________________________________________and staff ______________________________________________________in the Fall 2024 Small Group/Making Disciples Seminar.

Preferred date for event___________________________1st choice, __________________________ 2nd choice, _________________________3rd choice.

If I had the opportunity, I would like to glean wisdom from the following pastor(s) and church leadership (list as many as you’d like): _____________________________________________________________________
