Super Saturday 2010 Input Needed

Monday 12th October, 2009

Tens of thousands across Kentucky and beyond have received training at Super Saturday over the last eighteen years. The training has included the following: Sunday School, small groups, discipleship, assimilation, youth ministry, preschool-children's ministry, pastors/staff/DOMs, evangelism, worship and music, leadership, WMU, Baptist Men, stewardship, finance, women's ministry, ministers' wives, church architecture, church secretaries, prayer ministry, single adults, and more!

We are still evaluating this year's six Super Saturdays. We are poring over the experiences and the evaluation forms. We listen and really desire to make them better every year. In so many ways, Super Saturday now requires twelve months of preparation every year because as soon as the events are over we are debriefing the events and quickly moving to confirm arrangements, content, and faculty.

Because we desire to make Super Saturday fresh every year, very little of the training offered is repeated. That means that church leaders, workers, and members can return every year to learn even more about their areas of responsibility. That is why we have a strong group of people (about two thirds) who return every year to Super Saturday.

In order to make Super Saturday 2010 even more valuable to returners and to new people, we seek input each year about topics for training that you need and that we might address. Would you take a moment to answer one or more of these questions by pressing Comments below or email responses to supersaturday@kybaptist.org:

1) What topic(s) would you like to see covered at Super Saturday 2010 (include your area of responsibility, such as Sunday School, etc.)?

2) What major areas of need in the church could be strengthened through offering training at Super Saturday 2010 (include program area that likely would address it, such as worship & music)?

3) How could Super Saturday 2010 strengthen Kentucky Baptist churches even more?

Thanks in advance for your responses. I look forward to reading them here and by email. With thousands of blog readers, we may not be able to address every suggestion offered. We will, however, do our best to address significant issues as we prepare for 2010. Just so you know the timetable, we gather content suggestions by January so that by February-early March program leaders can determine topics which will be taught at Super Saturday. Then they can enlist faculty by April-early May.

Also, for your information, the six Super Saturday 2010 cities and dates include the following:

  • Lexington, August 21
  • Louisville, August 28
  • Williamsburg, September 11
  • Paducah, September 11
  • Ashland, September 18
  • Bowling Green, September 18

Hope to see you at Super Saturday 2010!
