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.

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.
