2016 Refresh Montana Meeting
October 6-7, 2016
Save the date for this year's Refresh Montana meeting, which will take place October 6-7 in Missoula. Registration below.
From the August E-news, a summary of changes to our Annual Meeting:
First, we have changed the name, and with that the emphasis, to Refresh. Our goal of this being a time of Spiritual refreshment, challenge, and encouragement. Second, we have moved the days and shortened the time from a Tuesday through Thursday, which is really hard for us in small churches with a Wednesday night ministry, to a Thursday afternoon through Friday afternoon. Third, we wanted to change from a business emphasis to a spiritual refreshing and connection emphasis. While understanding there will still be a little business we must legally do, we will be focusing on spiritual health and refreshment through powerful worship, breakout sessions and a special address by Our SBC President Dr Steve Gaines. Fourth, one of the best things we do as Southern Baptists is support over 10,000 missionaries through our giving to the Cooperative Program. One of our faults is that there is not the personal connection with those on the field that is so important for a church to be a part of. We will be spending more time focusing on the IMB and how we as churches can connect with missionaries individually. Fifth, if all goes well, the Executive Director Search Team hopes to have a candidate for you to meet and vote on during this meeting.
