Every month we spotlight five helpful resources for you as you seek to walk closely with the Lord and make disciples. Many of these resources are created by N.C. Baptist staff to help meet the ministry needs of leaders across the state.

Check out this month’s roundup, which includes a family advent devotional, resources on praying and giving to N.C. Baptist missionaries, recordings of breakout sessions from the 2022 annual meeting and information on our new church revitalization assessment.

In addition to the resources featured here, more can be found at ncbaptist.org/resources. You can also follow @ncbaptist on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, where we regularly share other helpful resources.

Praying for the Nations prayer guide

In 2023, N.C. Baptists across the state will join together to pray for our state’s unreached people groups, missionaries and church planters. See the webpage above to learn more and to sign up for our weekly prayer newsletter.

Annual Meeting breakout session recordings

This year’s annual meeting was filled with helpful breakout sessions to equip attendees, covering topics such as women’s discipleship, missions mobilization opportunities, preventing and responding to sexual abuse, foster care and adoption, social media and more. Enjoy access to all of these recordings using the link above.

Because you give, together we can go to reach the nations for Christ. Hear a word from Executive Director-Treasurer Todd Unzicker as he encourages us to be on mission through generous giving. To give to missionaries and international church planters, visit imb.org/lottie-moon.

Family Advent Devotions

This Christmas Advent devotional allows you to take your family through 25 devotions surrounding the coming of Christ to the world. Beginning on December 1, each day’s short readings, discussion questions and prayer prompts will inspire you and your family to put Jesus at the center of Christmas.

Church Revitalization Assessment

Studies show that the majority of churches are either plateaued or declining. One of the first steps a church can take toward revitalization is to complete our revitalization assessment. Read the article above to learn more about how your church can start the process of healthy renewal.
