Top 5 resources for November 2020

November 1, 2020

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 roundup includes a resource to help survivors of sexual abuse, a how to film a “3 Circles” training video, and a resource to protect your church and children. Additionally, check out the “Pray for 30 Days” prayer guide and an Advent devotional to be used leading up to Christmas.

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.

‘Responding Well’
This “Responding Well” resource seeks to equip women’s ministry leaders to help survivors of sexual abuse. Topics include: how to determine the classification of the information that is shared with you; how to report the information; how to listen and provide counsel; how to train the leaders within your women’s ministry; and how to refer to a counselor.

How to film a ‘3 Circles’ training
The “3 Circles” tool is a simple, reproducible way to communicate the gospel. This free training video will show you how to easily film your own “3 Circles” video to help train others in how to share the gospel. Additionally, there are supplemental documents available, such as an example script and an equipment list, that will make the quality of your video even better.

Designed with North Carolina churches in mind, the “Protecting Our Church and Children” resource covers a wide variety of subjects, from leadership to reporting child abuse or neglect, as well as foundational topics to protect your church and children.
