The Southern Baptists of Texas Convention is sponsoring a
college and young adult leadership retreat called Intersect, Jan. 13-15 in

Speakers for the retreat include Mark Dever, pastor of
Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.; John Meador, pastor of First
Baptist Church of Euless; Tim Elmore of; Wes Hamiliton,
speaker; and musician Matt Boswell.

The theme for the Intersect Retreat is “Signals,” which
plays off of traffic light signals of stop, caution and go.

“This conference is about developing the next generation of
leaders. It is for collegiate and young adult ministry leaders and their
leadership teams or those that they are developing to be leadership teams,”
said Lance Crowell, SBTC church ministries associate.

“This concept came from some of our leaders who said that
they could take their students to several different conferences around the
country, but there was really nothing that helped develop them to be the
leaders?spiritually and in ministry?that God has called them to be. We have two
tracks with some incredible leaders coming to encourage, challenge, and train.”

Registration covers two nights at the host site, the Embassy
Suites Frisco, based on four people to a room. Married couples will have their
own room.

Cost is $79 before Dec. 15 and $89 after for singles;
married couples are $139 before Dec. 15 and $149 after.
