Top 5 resources for February

February 1, 2019

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 features tools to pray for missionaries and unreached people groups, free online courses, podcasts and highlights of various ministries.

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.

52 Sundays
Pray for missionaries throughout 2019 by using the free “52 Sundays” resource. “52 Sundays” is designed to help churches pray for and learn about missionaries and church planters who are serving around the world, across North America and in North Carolina. The resource includes PowerPoint slides, ready-to-print bulletin inserts and prayer prompts. “52 Sundays” can be adapted and used by churches during their weekly worship services or by Sunday School classes, home groups, prayer teams or individuals. Download the resource at ncbaptist.org/52sundays.
