Pastors’ Conference 2018

FROM Privilege to Purpose

Calibrating our local churchES to God’s plan!

Join the conference, connect with other pastors in Christ, gain fresh encouragement from the messages, and use the opportunity to re-calibrate your ministry to Christ’s design for His church. Each message will focus on 1 of the 3 mandates of God to His Church and their relevance in the 21st century.

MESSAGES:

  1. Christ-centered Worship – What is the one thing – more than anything else – the enemy does not want for the pastor or his flock?
    Rob Ayliffe, Jeffreys Bay Bible Church,
  2. Renewing the New – Between Conversion and the Final Resurrection, every believer is in a state of renewal. What role does the faithful pastor play in their new life?
    Malcolm Cunningham – Knysna Baptist Church
  3. Evangelism in Exile – Christianity no longer occupies a central position in our culture. We Christians now live on the margins – just like the early Christians in 1 Peter. How does this shift from the centre to the margins shape our approach to evangelism?
    Bradley Trout – George Whitfield College

A light lunch will be served. Christian and Minsitry-related books will be available for purchase. The conference is FREE, but registration is essential for catering purposes.

Get stirred up for Missions this week

Get stirred up for missions!

This week, Luke and Lucy Profitt wil be visiting Knysna Baptist as they make their way along the coast in preparation for their departure to the mission field. Don’t miss out an opportunity to meet them and hear what being a missionary is about! The harvest is ripe, and the labourers are few.

After meeting the Stavropolous missionaries in April to hear their stories, we came away thoroughly blessed to see the new generation that God is stirring up for missions.

Don’t miss out:

  • Sunday, 12 June – Luke preaches at Knysna Baptist
  • Tuesday, 14 June, 7pm – Meet them and listen to their personal story of God’s calling to mission (4b Lindsay St, Hunters Home)
  • Luke and Lucy both grew up in homes with parents who love the Lord and they chose to follow him from an early age. Since they were quite young, they have been excited about the idea of going to tell people about Jesus who have never heard of him. They are now preparing to move to Uganda with their little boy, Nate.

    See you there!

Salt & Light

As I sat in my office on Wednesday afternoon, I detected the whirrr of bicycle wheels behind me beyond the open window. Often I don’t bother with that, happy that children feel safe to skate or cycle around our church building. Church property should be seen as a safe community space, a haven of enjoyment. But this time I rushed outside to catch them. I put on my friendliest face, imagining the fright they may feel at a strange man rushing to them.
It’s that simple. You don’t need to have a relationship to reach out to anyone and say, “Hi! Are you from around here? Have you heard about the party?” The boys soon relaxed and left happily with a bunch of pamphlets to share with their friends. It’s that simple – just have your senses tuned to the people passing by. Every soul is significant to Christ.
Please pray for this children’s event, that we make significant inroads to the unchurched in our neighbourhood. They need it!
