In September 2017, I had the humbling privilege to participate in my first New Baptist Covenant Summit and to preach at the Tuesday morning worship gathering (9/19).
“The New Baptist Covenant creates vibrant, inclusive Baptist communities, building bridges in places previously marked by division. We are called by God to champion the weak and oppressed, honor the diverse workings of the Holy Spirit and to share the love of Christ.” Read more…
The Summit Event theme was “A.R.T. Action. Reconciliation. Transformation.” Baptists from around the country gathered to learn about relevant concerns that are affecting communities and how churches can bridge divides to make an impact regarding these concerns, and by doing so ushering in the Reign of God.
While American Baptists have been part of the NBC movement since its beginnings in 2007, I am eager to share more about the model this movement offers here in Wisconsin, particularly to facilitate partnerships between interested churches who are positioned and ready to activate and display the unifying and transformative power of Christ.
Videos of the sermons and keynote presenters from this year’s summit is available on their website HERE. I hope you will also spend some time getting familiar with NBC and discern if this effort connects with you.
