There are 46000+ South Baptist Churches in the U.S.
Out of the 46,000 churches we have on average been baptizing the past few years 75,000+ students. That is 1.6 students a church is being baptized a year.
I want to throw the challenge out there that IN THE YEAR 2014 may ALL SBC CHURCHES take on a 12 a year challenge.
The 12 A YEAR CHALLENGE IS SIMPLE THIS:
That every church in the Southern Baptist Convention commits to winning one teenager a month to the Lord then following up with that teenager in seeing them get baptized and plugged into their church.
IF WE DO THIS:
We will baptize 552,000 students and over ½ a million teenagers will have a different story than they had in 2013. It will be a story of life change.
WILL YOU TAKE THE CHALLENGE?
Over the years I have written a few post about this:
