THEME: GROWING & GOING

The 2024 N.C. Baptist Pastors’ Conference aims to help churches grow so they can go.

We all want to plant churches and send workers to the nations. We believe that sending capacity is more important than seating capacity. But for us to have sending capacity, nothing is more important than seating capacity. Church growth is the currency for sending people out.

We want to talk positively about church growth and how it overflows into sending people out. We often hear statistics about 70-80% of churches in our convention plateauing or declining — the last thing these churches need to hear is that they shouldn’t be worried about things like attendance. Instead, we need to share a more positive message about church growth and its vital importance to our long-term goals of sending workers out to reach the lost.

Churches on mission together should care about practical ways to grow their churches through the preaching of the Word. Our goal for this conference is to narrow in on pastors, on their preaching and their practices, so they can lead their churches to reach their communities. Our aim is to put these two ideas together: growing and going.
