Spring is here! And that means lots of incredible opportunities to get involved in God’s work. Here are a few highlights of recent and upcoming events for you and your church.
Nearly 600 people from 115 SBC of Virginia churches attended the Kidz Leader Conference and Super VBS Clinic at Swift Creek Baptist Church in Midlothian. Here is a new highlight video from that event.
Daytona Bike Week In early March, thousands of people attended the 75th Anniversary of Daytona Bike Week in Florida. A total of 41 SBC of Virginia church volunteers from First Baptist in Roanoke, London Bridge Baptist in Virginia Beach, and Southside Baptist in Suffolk made the trip to share the gospel. Their commitment helped lead 409 people to accept Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Continue to pray for these new brothers and sisters in Christ.

The International Mission Board (IMB) is in the midst of re-tooling its mission strategy and staff.

This unique, one-day conference will help answer some of these questions. More details on our website: sbcv.org/imbmeeting

Be in prayer for how God will move your church to contribute to Vision Virginia. This state missions offering supports ministries like church planting, building churches, backpacks for impoverished children, and reaching refugees in Greece. Our 2016 goal is $275,000. If each SBC of Virginia church gives $404, we can reach our goal together. Go to our website for more details: sbcv.org/visionvirginia
