Call to Prayer
Please continue to pray for the North American Baptist Conference regularly throughout the months of May and June. As you seek to abide with Christ, be reminded that in him we can bear much fruit. Pray in the coming weeks for additional international missionaries for our NAB fields. Ask the Lord of the harvest to send forth more laborers to reach many in this world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The theme of the 2015 Triennial is “Sent.” Based on John 20:21, this theme spurs each of us to remember that even as the Father sent the Son, so the Son sends the church—and each of us—into our neighborhoods and communities to fulfill the Father’s mission to renew and transform our fallen world.
The annual meeting of the General Council of the North American Baptist Conference was held last week. Fifty-three members came together in Folsom, California, to discuss important agenda items, to hear vital reports from NAB staff and cooperating organizations, and to advance important NAB business. As significant news, the Executive Committee has agreed to present the General Council with names of individuals in which to seat a search committee for the next executive director by August 31, 2014. Please pray for those who will be involved in the process of seeking God’s face regarding the processes and the placement of the next executive director.
