Celebrate the Small Strong Congregation, a conference sponsored by the Mississippi Baptist Convention Board (MBCB), will be presented September 24, 2015, at First Baptist Church, Jackson.
According to Roger E. Ormon, Team Leader Discipleship Development Center/Sunday School Specialist, MBCB, “The intent of the conference is to celebrate the effectiveness of small congregations as they network with one another.”
The conference includes plenary sessions, exhibitors, networking opportunities, and table talk. Plenary sessions are facilitated by Dr. Chuck Lawless, Professor of Evangelism and Missions, Dean of Graduate Studies and Ministry Centers at Southeastern Seminary. He also serves as Global Theological Consultant for the International Mission Board. He is the author of eight works, including Membership Matters, Spiritual Warfare, Putting on the Armor, Serving in Your Church Prayer Ministry, and Mentor. He has led conferences on spiritual warfare, healthy church growth, leadership, evangelism and discipleship, and prayer.
Exhibitors will offer effective tools for the small congregation. The table talk segments will give participants the opportunity to discuss and capture their success stories, and information gleaned from these sessions will be provided to all attendees.
Cost for the conference is $20, with discounts available for early bird registrants and for multiple attendees from the same church. If a pastor chooses to bring his deacon chairman, the chairman attends free with advance notice.
Registration at the event begins at 9:15 a.m., with the last session beginning at 2:54 p.m.

Jim Futral, Executive Director-Treasurer, MBCB, said, “You need to mark the date on your calendar and make plans to come and be ready to be blessed. In Mississippi, we have no little churches. Just ahead is the date that we are going to gather together and celebrate the small strong congregations across Mississippi. In one of our sister Southern states, the state government has an ad campaign that says in their state, ‘Small business is big business.’ In Mississippi, our strong small churches are big Kingdom business. Mark it down. Be there!”
