Kentucky Baptist Religious Education Association Annual Meeting 2008

Wednesday 22nd October, 2008

I want to invite all current, former, and retired church staff members who lead educational efforts to attend this year's excellent KBREA program. This includes the Minister of Education, Associate Pastor, Minister of Preschool/Children, Minister of Youth, Minister of Adults, college and seminary professors, associational and denominational leaders, pastors, and others.

The KBREA Annual Meeting will be held at Porter Memorial Baptist Church (, 4300 Nicholasville Rd, Lexington, KY. on Monday, November 10, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The theme will be "What Is the Missional Church?" and will feature Chuck Coward, Church and Communities Consultant for the Charleston (SC) Baptist Association.

Here is some more information about the program:

What Is the Missional Church? Missional has become the new buzz word in Southern Baptist circles. During training events at Ridgecrest and Glorieta this summer, Bruce Raley, Director of Leadership and Evangelism Training for LifeWay, predicted that the next defining stage of church ministry will be known as the missional era. Chuck Coward is a passionate student of the missional church movement. While many events are attempting to define what the missional church is, Chuck will provide practical concepts for becoming missional.

Registration. Cost for the event is $30 which includes lunch. Please make checks payable to KBREA. You may mail your payment in advance to Rodney Lynch, Parkway Baptist Church, 2850 Springfield Rd, Bardstown, KY  40004. If you choose to bring your payment on the day of the event, please pre-register by e-mailing your KBREA Treasurer at
