Healthy Church Leadership Coming to NCBA

Equipping the saints is a mandate from God. The California Healthy Church Group has agreed to help our association in this effort. Tom Belew is putting together a team to be here on Saturday, March 14, to assist us.
I realize this is just one week before the small church conference in Yuba City so this will be a double opportunity for some of us. It is my prayer that at least 100 of you will be at the group leaders conference here in our association and 25 will going to Yuba City with us on the following Saturday. Prayerfully consider the needs of your church and recruit those who need equipping. I look forward to continue my in service training with many of you.
March is a busy month leading up to Easter on the First Sunday of April. Let’s go for it !

Smaller Church membership Conference, Yuba City

Pastors and Leaders of SBC Churches

We have been going to this conference since it started several years ago. It is top quality and only about 5 hours from here. Housing is inexpensive in Yuba City and it’s good time of fellowship with fellow pastors or church members coming and going. Our association with cover registration cost and pay for gas for those going. This offer is not just for pastors but for those in leadership in the association.

Most of us will leave Friday afternoon, spend the night in Yuba City and drive home after the meeting on Saturday. We should be home by 10 PM. Last year several stopped in Redding at the Red Lobster for dinner on the way home. I’ll be glad to register you and coordinate transportation for those who want me to, or you can work it out with friends and the association will reimburse you .If needed the association will also pay for lodging if you stay in rooms we have reserved.

The Pastors’ and wives’ Christmas dinner was an occasion of great fellowship with Doug Culbert  providing  entertainment and Roger Sanderson leading carols. Roger was presented with an award from the state convention for his leadership as a volunteer music leader in our state.

First Baptist Church,  Redway,  received recognition for  leading  our association in per capita giving to missions at Christmas last year.

Four of our new pastors were present and the event was hosted by Trinity Baptist in Arcata.
