Younger Leaders Meeting in Greensboro, June 12

The second annual Younger Leaders Meeting held in conjunction with the SBC Annual Meeting will take place on Monday evening, June 12, at the War Memorial Auditorium in Greensboro. Both established and younger SBC leaders will discuss various topics about sharing Christ effectively in today's world, both here and abroad, and the role of the SBC in the advancement of God's Kingdom. Toward the end of this meeting, Ed Stetzer will introduce the Missional Network, an "online and relational community of ministry leaders connecting according to their chosen ministry approach" that is sponsored by NAMB. The goal of the Missional Network is to provide a forum in which missionally minded SBC leaders can connect with each other and share ideas.

The tentative schedule for the Younger Leaders Meeting is as follows:

9:55 PM: Worship band begins (2-3 songs)

10:00 PM: Jimmy Draper: Opening prayer and welcome to young leaders

10:04 PM: Worship band plays (2-3 songs)

10:10 PM: Jerry Rankin: To the edge: Churches partnering to reach the world

10:20 PM: Christi Avant: Broadway and the Bible (Sharing Christ contextually)

10:25 PM: Jeff Iorg: Why the SBC still matters

10:40 PM: Doug and Kiki Cherry: The campus and Christ (The questions young people are asking about Christ)

10:45 PM: Ed Stetzer: Announcing The Missional Network

10:55 PM: Worship band plays

11:00 PM: Tim Sweatman: Closing prayer

11:00-11:55 PM: Snacks and conversation

I hope that those of you who are able to attend will do so. Not only will you be able to hear from speakers who are passionate about sharing Jesus with others, there will also be an opportunity for fellowship following the actual meeting. I look forward to seeing you there.

Tim, looks like they didn't give you any time to pray. Maybe that means you get the whole fellowship time. :)

Any chance we can get Tuesday's start time moved back about three hours? I'm getting sleepy just thinking about it... ;-)

Looking forward to it.
