Houston’s First Baptist partners with IMB for ministry partnerships conference

IMB’s South Asia leadership and Houston’s First Baptist Church will host two free missions mobilization events, An Intro to South Asia and Becoming a Sending Church, Oct. 4-5, to highlight the lostness in South Asia and how local churches can partner in the “no place left” vision.

As an epicenter for lostness, South Asia’s need for laborers grows daily.  These mobilization events offer local churches the opportunity to see how they can get involved.

At Intro to South Asia, participants will learn about the biblical foundation for missions as a priority, South Asia field realities, the IMB’s Affinity of South Asian Peoples vision and strategy with stories from the field, and ways local churches can get involved through prayer, projects, partnerships, and pipelines for sending.  Intro to South Asia will be held Oct. 4 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Houston’s First Baptist Church.

Becoming a Sending Church will focus on biblical missiology, a brief overview of the South Asia vision and strategy, team structure in South Asia, a brief report of the progress of the core missionary task, gaps and needs, priorities for goers and senders including a pipeline case study, and a job fair. Participants can meet South Asia affinity leadership to discuss specific jobs. Becoming a Sending Church will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. on October 4 and 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 5 at Houston’s First Baptist Church.

Preregistration is required for both An Intro to South Asia and Becoming a Sending Church, and seats are limited.  For information about how to register, email: asapconnecting@imb.org.
