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 the staff of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSCNC) to help meet the ministry needs of pastors and lay leaders across the state.
Check out this month’s roundup of resources which includes the 2021 N.C. Annual Meeting website, the “Pray for 30 Days” devotional, a “Church Revitalization Assessment” tool and the “Walking with God” study guide. Lastly, this month’s top five also includes a “How to Have a Quiet Time” resource.
In addition to the resources featured here, many more can be found at ncbaptist.org/resources. You may also follow @ncbaptist on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, where we’ll share other helpful resources throughout the month.
