God’s Great Work, ‘19 Annual Meeting

March 26, 2019

This year’s Annual Meeting is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 11-12, at the Joseph H. Koury Convention Center in Greensboro. The Monday evening session will feature a special church planting commissioning service that will focus on pockets of lostness, unreached people groups and sending churches. The Tuesday evening session will feature a special “Who’s Your One?” emphasis with a worship service and sermon by Ronnie Floyd, newly elected president of the executive committee of the Southern Baptist Convention.

This year’s Annual Meeting theme is “God’s Great Work” based on the Great Commission and the Great Commandment, found in Matthew 28:18-19 and 22:36-40, respectively. This year’s convention president, Steve Scoggins, will be highlighting the significance of the connection between the two, as he preaches from Nehemiah 6:3 for the president’s address, also featured on Monday evening.

The focus on “God’s Great Work” will continue throughout Annual Meeting with worship, special presentations and reports.

N.C. Baptists are also invited to join in a 30-day prayer emphasis throughout October in the month preceding Annual Meeting. Chris Schofield, director of the BSCNC’s Office of Prayer for Revival and Spiritual Awakening, is developing a devotional prayer guide, to correspond with the October prayer emphasis, which will be available by early fall.

Larry Burns, committee for convention meetings chairman, encourages all N.C. Baptists to attend the Annual Meeting and seek the Lord in prayer leading up to the event.

The Annual Meeting will also include ministry reports, business sessions, breakout sessions, exhibits and resources for churches, pastors and church members. All sessions of the Annual Meeting are open to messengers from N.C. Baptist churches, as well as guests. On-site registration is required for messengers from churches who will be voting during business sessions.

Additional details about the Annual Meeting, including the event schedule, hotel and travel information, are coming soon at ncannualmeeting.org.

The website will be updated with additional information such as breakout session descriptions, potential resolutions, business items and more leading up to the Annual Meeting.
