Training and breakout sessions will be offered on a variety of topics, including how to utilize social media, the best way to equip both men and women to disciple others, evangelism for children and the best ways to reach out to the American Indian and Asian communities.

“After attending the conference, attendees will be prepared to lead others to serve and share Jesus through both actions and words,” said Tim Gentry, the convention's evangelism director.

Serve Oklahoma, a major initiative to be launched at this year's conference, is designed to mobilize Oklahoma congregations to take Jesus outside the walls of the church building to “be the church” instead of just “doing church.”

“Serve Oklahoma involves organizing a day of service and a season of service through Sunday school or small groups within congregations,” said Brian Hobbs, the convention's communications director.

“It's designed to encourage churches and Oklahoma Baptists to transform their community for Christ.”

The Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma is made up of more than 1,800 Southern Baptist churches throughout the state.
