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.

Check out this month’s roundup of resources which include ways to promote this year’s North Carolina Missions Offering, a Pray for 30 Days prayer guide, how to film a “3 Circles” training video and the Faith Talks Family devotional.
