Top 5 resources for July 2018

July 2, 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 disciple-making, collegiate partnerships, 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.

Undivided
We’re divided along party lines, poverty lines and, especially, racial lines. That division has crept into our churches as well. But that’s not how God designed the Church. We are meant to be an undivided example in a divided world. In this free, five-week video series and discussion guide developed by the North American Mission Board, pastors J.D. Greear and Dhati Lewis unpack what it looks like to move your church toward genuine gospel community across racial lines.

This resource provides a helpful listing of 20 college campuses in North Carolina with an assessment of their needs.

What makes Good Friday good?
