We are in St. Louis this week for the SBC. On Tuesday, we are partnering with Baptist21 to sponsor the 2016 Baptist21 Panel . Panelists include David Platt, Matt Chandler, Albert Mohler, Danny Akin, Russell Moore and J.D. Greear. We’re excited to be part of the Baptist21 panel because they always focus on some of the most pressing issues facing both the SBC and the church at large. The lunch is Tuesday, June 14th, from 11:45a – 1:00p in the St. Louis America’s Center. You can register HERE.

Can’t make it?  We’ll be sharing the video below and highlighting 3 ways leaders and churches can parter with Summit Network (scroll down):

Sending Church Workshops. When Jesus commissioned his disciples, he revealed the key for reaching the world Is found in sending. The million-dollar question is: How? How do you become a sending church? At these workshops, we answer that question and many others as we unpack the practices behind Gaining By Losing. You’ll learn from the Summit Church in RDU and others as we address question like: How do you create a sending culture? How do you identify and develop church planters? How do you start a residency?

Church Planting Residency. Leadership finishing school. Church planting incubator. Gospel DNA. Residency is a 9-month training experience designed to equip called and competent leaders to plant thriving, gospel-centered churches. Residents gather twice a month for training with seasoned pastors and planters while serving at a Summit Network or partnering church. Benefit from the combined experience of our mentors and partners and over 30 leaders from the Summit Network.

Ministry Training. Jesus made an audacious claim to his disciples: that it was better for him to go away, because the power of his  Spirit inside them would be even better than Jesus beside them. Our vision is to equip dozens of Spirit-filled leaders to follow Christ and serve his church. Our 1- and 2-year ministry training opportunities combine meaningful experience, hands-on mentorship and intentional development by Summit staff and partners to prepare you for your calling in God’s mission.
