Three Missions Connection 2014 events were offered in mid-November by the Arkansas Baptist State Convention (ABSC). About 160 people participated.
The goal of the events was to give participants the opportunity to learn about missions partnership opportunities and to have their questions answered, said Bob Fielding, ABSC missions team member.
The event provided participants a chance to meet long-term missionaries and church planters from 10 locations.
“The presenters at this event are looking for partners – prayer partners, mission team partners, etc – so the 160 or so people who came were able to hear all 10 presenters and then go to three breakout sessions in the afternoon to get the ‘kitchen sink,’” said Fielding. “I’ve already heard that two couples are considering moving to Chicago to help with church planting.”
Laura Macfarlan, director of Heart Life Women’s Ministry at First Baptist Church, Siloam Springs, attended.
“I came away more inspired and equipped to pray and certainly filled with a desire to go!” she said.
The events took place Nov. 13 at First Baptist Church, Fayetteville; Nov. 14 at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church, Cabot, and Nov. 15 at Central Baptist Church, Magnolia.
