Top 5 resources for August 2018

August 1, 2018

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.

This month’s resources include highlights on areas such as the North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO), Sunday School, disciple-making, prayer and more.

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.

North Carolina Missions Offering Resources
The North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO) is a special offering received during the month of September that supports the ministries of Baptists on Mission, church planting, mission camps, associational projects and mobilization ministry projects. NCMO is your opportunity to impact lostness as God accomplishes many wonderful things through these various ministries. A number of resources are available for your church to promote this year’s offering.

NCMO Week of Prayer
As we prepare to give sacrificially for the sake of missions, church planting and other ministry efforts, would you join us in a week of prayer from Aug. 27 to Sept. 3?

Disciple-Making at Home Training Plan
Parents want to provide the very best of everything for their children. Whether with academics, athletics, musical instruction, or whatever the endeavor, we desire the best for our kids. But how often do we ask if we are providing the best spiritual foundation for our children? This training plan for families will aid you in your efforts of making disciples in the home.

Back to the Basics
Back to the Basics is a 10-week discipleship curriculum designed to help new believers know and apply the essential beliefs of Christianity. Developed by Darrick Smith of the BSCNC’s Collegiate Partnerships Team, the curriculum focuses on a variety of topics such as: sin and salvation; evangelism and discipleship; biblical manhood and womanhood; and stewardship in a way that connects them to Christianity’s grand narrative — creation, fall, redemption and restoration. Consider this study with your Sunday School or small group.

As I am writing this article, I was notified that my grandson, Joshua, had broken his ankle. My granddaughter, Collins, broke her arm this year. My son, Sam, broke his leg a month ago. And my wife, Nellie Jo, broke her wrist earlier this year.   That’s four different Rainer...

So you’re a follower of Jesus: ‘Now What?’

I vividly remember the season when I decided to give up running and join a gym. Up until then I had been an avid runner and enjoyed it. It was a great stress reliever for me, but I didn’t have much physical strength — I was weak and I wanted to change that.    I remember going to...

The beauty of adoption

Mom and dad never called me their adopted son. I was just their son. I was born into an unfortunate situation, but I was adopted into a blessed family. In 1966, adoption was not as highlighted in the American church as it is today. In the spring of 1998, I was a seminary student...

NC mountain man returns home to plant new church

People say if you live in the North Carolina mountains, they’ll always call you back.   For Michael Childers, that’s pretty much what happened. Except it was God who called him back, not the hills, he says.   Drive to Brevard over in western North Carolina, and then head out of...
