Few in our churches want to talk about the old denominational wars.  Church people don’t know what happened, don’t care what happened, and don’t care to know what happened.  Unfortunately, the interim church has become the new battleground.  Without a pastor in place, a small group in the church might agitate for the church to leave its historic relationship with the BGCT.  Outside influences also target the church during this vulnerable interim period.  Many falsehoods are floating around out there, and church members are often all too gullible.  How can we, as interim pastors, help churches navigate these treacherous times, so that the church is informed and united, while the leaders (especially the search committee) stay savvy enough to protect their church from what could happen?
Dr. Mark Brister will be our morning leader.  He has served as a pastor and a university president.  He successfully led IIM pastorates at South Hills Baptist Church in Fort Worth and Highland Baptist Church in Denton.  He has also led  4 traditional interim pastorates, including FBC Corpus Christi and FBC El Paso.
The afternoon will include a information on how a matching Lily Grant, through the BGCT, could add up to $10,000 to assist a pastor with financial challenges.  The Maples-Williamson-Daehnert Award will also be presented and, as always, there will be good food and great fellowship.
