People matter to God, so they matter to us.
Mission Matters: for God’s witness, the Church’s vitality, our own discipleship, and the common good of our communities.
Join us for this two-day Greater Lynchburg event designed to foster regional connections and encourage renewed approaches to local and global missions. Get inspired by plenary sessions featuring keynote speakers, worship, and panel discussions, and share meals and conversation with fellow Virginia Baptists on mission. Select a focused breakout track to develop new ideas and learn about opportunities to engage in Disaster Response, Partnership Missions in Haiti, or best practices in Community Missions.
Come explore and expand how Mission Matters for the transformation of your congregation, yourself, and your community.
Cost is $25 per person, including dinner Friday, lunch Saturday, and access to all of the weekend’s training opportunities and plenary sessions.
Sign up for breakout tracks in:
- Disaster Response – get trained in both feeding and recovery (flood and chainsaw) in a single day.
- Partnership Missions – receive orientation for upcoming mission trips to Haiti, or learn more about the partnership and the BGAV approach to global discipleship.
- Community Missions – learn about specific ministries in the Greater Lynchburg region and take home best practices for hunger programs, prison ministries, job training, community gardening, ESL, school partnerships, and other local outreach opportunities.
