4,200-plus attend NAMB Send Conference

FloydPLANO, Texas – Few could have imagined just a few years ago that a church-planting event hosted by the North America Mission Board (NAMB) would attract more than 4,200 participants, but that’s exactly what happened July 29-30 at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano.

It’s a good thing those planning the Send: North America Conference decided to host it at the massive Prestonwood facility, otherwise, there would not have been enough room to put everyone during plenary worship and breakout sessions. Even so, many of the breakout sessions were filled with capacity. 

Ronnie Floyd, senior pastor of Cross Church in northwest Arkansas,led a breakout session titled, A Strategic Hope for Revitalization. He told conferees church revitalization starts with the question, “What do you see?” Floyd said God asked this question to four different prophets in the Bible.

Read the entire article in the August 8 edition of the Arkansas Baptist News. NAMB has posted stories, photos and videos from the conference at www.namb.net/send2013.
