Sometimes our office feels like we should be in the moving business! We are constantly loading and unloading to get ready for our next event. Today feels like one of those days! We have spent the morning boxing up supplies for next week’s State Evangelism Conference. I’d like to remind all of you of the details and why you should bring women!

The Women’s Emphasis of the State Evangelism Conference in Tuesday, January 26, at First Baptist, Moore. A general session begins at 9 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. We have a terrific line-up of speakers this year and you will not want to miss them. Our theme this year is MY316, which is the new evangelism strategy that will be implemented in Oklahoma in 2010. Believers in our state will be encouraged to share their story with the most familiar verse in the Bible (John 3:16) to lead others to a faith in Christ.

The first is Mary Jo Sharp. little mary joI met Mary Jo five years ago when I came to the BGCO and found her to be one of the most intelligent and passionate women in the area of apologetics. She is now a Certified Apologetics Instructor with the North American Mission Board. She will be speaking to women about defending your faith and how to confront Oprah’s false gods. Each woman who comes will receive a brief pamphlet on apologetics that Mary Jo wrote for our event.


The second keynote speaker is Kelly Minter. little kellyKelly is a wonderfully gifted young woman who not only has written Bible studies, but her first passion is in the area of leading worship. Her recent study, Ruth: Loss, Love and Legacy, not only is a great Bible Study, but she has written a CD of music that tells the story of Ruth. Her study, No Other Gods, will be the study she will focus on in the afternoon seminar sessions. She’ll be sharing how you can use Bible studies in your homes to develop relationships for evangelism.

You are going to be blessed by coming next Tuesday to the Women’s emphasis of the State Evangelism Conference, so plan now to bring a group of women from your church.
