Over the past couple of years, the Lord has been gracious in opening up doors for B21 to expand our events calendar from just hosting events at the SBC annual meetings to also being able to host a number of events throughout the year around the country. We’d like to make you aware of a couple such events that we have coming up soon…
1. Pastor’s Conference at the Indiana Baptist Convention
– When: October 6, 2011 at 9:15pm
– Where: Twin Lakes Southern Baptist Church, Monticello, IN
– What: Panel discussion- “Can We Program Cooperation? Toward a Great Commission Vision of Partnership”
* Danny Akin- President of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
* Kevin Smith- Pastor, Watson Memorial Baptist Church, Louisville, KY. Associate Professor of Church History at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
* Micah Fries- Pastor, Frederick Boulevard Baptist Church, St. Joseph, MO.

2. Indiana Shepherd’s Conference:
– When: October 21, 2011 at 8:30pm
– Where: Highland Lakes Baptist Camp, Martinsville, IN
– What: Panel discussion- “Right Gospel, Wrong Text? Preaching Christ From All Of Scripture”
* Tony Merida- Pastor, Imago Dei Church, Raleigh, NC
* Greg Gilbert- Pastor, Third Avenue Baptist Church, Louisville, KY

* David Prince- Pastor, Ashland Avenue Baptist Church, Lexington, KY. Adjunct Professor of Preaching at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
If you live in or near Indiana, you definitely don’t want to miss the opportunity to hear these seasoned leaders address these important issues. If you are still on the fence about whether or not to attend these conferences, hopefully the lineup on these B21 panels will give you one more reason to be encouraged to attend.
Also, keep in mind that this is just a couple of the events we have scheduled between now and SBC 2012 in New Orleans (for which we are planning two possible B21 events). One such event will be a panel discussion at this year’s Tennessee Baptist Convention. Until then, stay tuned for more announcements about B21 events coming soon.
