I am convinced that God loves those who work every day in the small church. There is no question that the Southern Baptist Convention is a convention of small churches. They form the backbone of what has made us great for so many years. As a result of my belief in, and my thankfulness for, the small church I have been encouraging everyone who can to attend the 2008 SBC Small Church Leadership Conference in North Carolina in March of 2008. The lineup of speakers is as good as you can find anywhere and I know of no other opportunity out there to find an entire conference specifically designed with the small church leader in mind.
That being said, it’s time to let you know that through the generosity of a donor, more scholarships are available. These will pay for the registration fee for 50 small church leaders who are planning to attend the conference. If you would like to go, you need to let Les know asap in order to receive some of this financial assistance.
