NAB UPDATE - March 8, 2013

Leadership Development
Leadership development remains a top priority at the NAB. Identifying, coaching, and training the next generation of leaders—whether they are age 22 or 72—will help our churches and mission fields to flourish for the glory of God for decades to come.

Join us for the next Leadership Teleconference on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, starting at 10:00 a.m. (PST). Our next book for discussion is Deep Mentoring: Guiding Others on Their Leadership, authored by Randy Reese and Rob Loane.

The publisher of the book, IVP Press, summarizes the book this way:

God’s Perfect Path

I became Christian in 1985. That was the first time I heard the Gospel. I was born and brought up in a Buddhist family, like most other Vietnamese, 90% of whom are Buddhist.

My story begins around the time of the Vietnam War. My dad traveled to South Vietnam to become a soldier and died when I was just 3 years old. In 1975, when the Communist North took over South Vietnam, they searched for all those who had contact with the GVC (South Vietnamese Government) before the war and imprisoned them in concentration camps. In our case, even with my father dead, the new government confiscated our home and forced us into the mountains away from the city to one of many camps they called New Economic Areas.

Everyday Church Initiative

The North American Baptist Conference wants to invite your church to join an exciting journey of missional engagement in the upcoming year with a host of other NAB churches. In 2012, Tim Chester and Steve Timmis wrote a book based upon 1 Peter that is a great tool for helping your congregation learn to live life and serve others at the margins. The writing is theologically sound and very practical. To accompany this book, usable resources have been created for churches across Canada and the U.S.

Our hope is that NAB churches will use this book as a discussion tool with church leaders, and then use the book and materials to guide a preaching series in the fall.

Dear Ministry Friends,

For years, NAB has been training church leaders in Russia. God is at work in Russia, drawing people to Himself, and has been gracious to use our efforts to bring theological and ministry education to the next generation of leaders in Russian churches in the Rostov area. With the success of that ministry, we have been asked to transition our leadership development efforts to another area of Russia.  With nine time zones—Russia recently merged time zones from eleven to nine—moving to another ministry area in Russia is almost like moving to another nation. This is exciting ministry. NAB is grateful to God for new open doors and wanted to let you know about these changes so you can pray passionately for our new opportunities.

Here is some information you will want to know:

As the end of the year draws near, many will wish to give to the ministries of the North American Baptists, generously planting seeds for our missionaries and churches to preach the gospel, in word and deed, throughout the world in 2013. We are grateful to God for those who so faithfully spread God’s love through financially supporting NAB’s ministries. Thank you for giving!
