Every few months, 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 prayer guide for the month of October, a communications toolkit, resources for responding to abuse in churches, a video celebrating Hispanic Heritage month and a detailed guide to coordinating church committees.
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.
These devotions with prayer points are designed to assist believers and churches as they seek Christ personally and corporately for revival and spiritual awakening. Join N.C. Baptists in praying and exploring what it means to be on mission together. This guide is also available in Spanish.
Creating safe and secure environments for our ministries is a crucial responsibility that is of the highest importance. Churches can set up policies and procedures to help protect the most vulnerable that walk through our doors. But what happens when an allegation of abuse is put forward? What are your immediate next steps? This checklist aims to provide you with the information that you need to move forward.
Hispanic Heritage Month continues through Oct. 15. This is a great opportunity to honor Hispanic brothers and sisters by celebrating the contributions they have made for the gospel. Check out this conversation between Todd Unzicker, N.C. Baptist executive director-treasurer, and Amaury Santos, statewide Hispanic catalyst. They chat about the unique ways the diverse Hispanic culture demonstrates an “on mission together” spirit.
What kind of communication practices do you have at your church, network or association? Here is a curated list of tools that will help you approach communications with excellence. Topics include project management, website development and design, graphic design, social media and more. A free online training is coming up Oct. 19 to equip church or association staff and volunteers with resources to best craft your message and mission.
The work of any church committee should contribute to accomplishing a church’s vision or mission. Different committees take care of responsibilities such as audio services, constitution and bylaws, pastor search, benevolence and much more. This detailed resource offers guidance on building and training committees, leading them well and more.
