Kentucky Baptist pastors, church staff members and their spouses who are new to their churches are invited to attend “Get Acquainted Day” at the Kentucky Baptist Building on Tuesday, March 20.
Get Acquainted Day is designed to help build relationships and welcome new church staff members—especially those who have not served in Kentucky before—to ministry in the commonwealth. The one-day event will familiarize new church staff members with Kentucky Baptist Convention resources and ministries.
KBC Leadership Development Team Leader Karl Babb said the event will also give pastors and church staff members a chance to connect with others who are in the similar situation of being new.
“We want to address the sense of isolation that new ministers sometimes feel due to geography or the varying sizes of churches in their area and help them identify things they have in common with their fellow ministers,” Babb said.
Babb said pastors or church staff members who are not new to Kentucky but have never had an opportunity to visit the Kentucky Baptist Building are also invited.
The schedule includes an overview of the Kentucky Baptist Convention and its ministries, a Kentucky Baptist Building tour, an address by KBC Executive Director Paul Chitwood, and presentations on the Cooperative Program and the KBC’s More for Christ spiritual renewal emphasis.
The event begins at 9:30 a.m., EDT with registration and fellowship; sessions are 10 a.m. through 3:45 p.m.
The Kentucky Baptist Building is located at 13420 Eastpoint Centre Drive, Louisville.
The event is free and includes a complimentary lunch. To register, go to www.kybaptist.org/welcome.
