This past Saturday a big crowd of 563 people attended the Kidz Leader Conference and Super VBS Clinic at Swift Creek Baptist Church in Midlothian. Children leaders from 115 SBCV churches received training from leaders of organizations like the IMB and LifeWay. You can find photos now and videos soon on our website: sbcv.org/kidz
SBCV churches have been a big help through the recovery efforts from the recent tornado. Thank you for contributing $20,000 in donations. You will be pleased to know that 100% of that went directly to families impacted.
Volunteers distributed food and water, cleaned up debris with chainsaw crews, and shared God’s love. Thank you for making this possible. You can find details and videos on our website: sbcv.org/tornadorelief
We have a new addition to the SBCV family. Josh Turner was just affirmed by the executive committee of the executive board as the new Church Planting Strategist in Central Virginia. This comes at a time as Ron and Linda Kidd prepare to relocate in Montreal to serve as Missionary Service Corps Missionaries.
Josh grew up in Louisa County, an undergraduate degree from Virginia Tech and three degrees from Liberty University to include a Doctorate of Ministry. He has been working part-time with the SBCV since February 2011 as an Associate Church Planting Specialist. Josh is a proven leader in recruiting, equipping, and coaching church planters.
He has been married for 19 years to Stacy and together they have three children; Caleb, Laura, and Anna. Please keep Josh and his family in your prayers as he transitions into this new position.
