is a new five-year strategy that focuses on impacting lostness through disciple-making.
In keeping with its stated mission, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina will assist the churches in evangelizing all people groups in every ethnic and/or cultural context by developing and applying disciple-making ministry models with an Acts 1:8 focus. North Carolina Baptists commit to accomplish this by strengthening and planting churches through creating a disciple-making culture, utilizing a relationship-driven consulting model incorporating generalists and specialists, starting in the most concentrated areas of lostness located in eight population centers.
On Thursday, April 11, 2013, the Executive Committee approved a five-year strategy that focuses on impacting lostness through disciple-making.
The Board of Directors endorsed the strategy during their May 2013 meeting, and the report was presented to Convention messengers during the 2013 annual meeting. Strategy implementation began January 2014.
Although lost people live throughout the entire state, the most concentrated areas of lostness in North Carolina are in eight population centers: Asheville, Charlotte, Fayetteville, Greenville, Hickory, Wilmington, the Triad area (Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point) and the Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill).
The Strategic Focus Team facilitates the work in these eight population areas, with a coordinator serving in each of the eight areas. Read the full strategy of Impacting Lostness Through Disciple-Making by downloading the first link below:
