GERMANTOWN, Tenn. – A Missional Marketplace Summit will be held March 21-22 at Germantown Baptist Church in Germantown, Tenn.
Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary is partnering with the International Mission Board and Germantown Baptist Church to host the event, according to Duffy Guyton, chief development officer for the seminary.
“This is a monumental, Christ-honoring event,” Guyton said in a letter mailed to churches about the event.
Charles Fowler, pastor at Germantown Baptist Church, said the purpose of the conference is to “encourage and equip the Body of Christ for greater expression of the gospel in the marketplace.”
Speakers for the conference include Alan Barnhart of Barnhart Cranes and Rigging; Jason Little, CEO of Baptist Memorial Healthcare; Mearl Purvis of Fox 24; Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell; Memphis Mayor A. C. Wharton; Jeff Arnold of Fisher & Arnold; Ephie Johnson of Neighborhood Christian Center; Harry Smith of Schilling Enterprises, and others.
The conference begins on Friday, March 21, with a worship service. Ron Norton with the Germantown Baptist Choir and Orchestra will lead the music. Bartholomew Orr, Mid-America Seminary alumnus and pastor of Brown Missionary Baptist Church of Southaven, Miss., will speak Friday night.
“Every plenary session and breakout session is focused on helping business leaders become more equipped to share their faith in the workplace,” Guyton said in the letter. “We have a special track for home managers led by Kathy Peel who is a nationally recognized author and speaker.”
Germantown Baptist Church is located at 9450 Poplar Ave, Germantown, Tenn.
