According to Lamar Duke, lead church planting strategist for SBOM's office of associational missions and church planting, the event will be a "family reunion of Kingdom-minded servants, a diverse group of Alabama Baptists who are serving our Lord through church planting or who may be called to do so."
We will enjoy a time of singing, prayer, special music, and inspiring messages from Rev. Lamar Duke (Church Planting Strategist for ALSBOM) and Dr. Jimmy Jackson (Senior Pastor, Whitesburg Baptist Church).
"God's timing is always perfect," said Lamar Duke, SBOM church planting strategist.
Duke said the answer "is to follow the Lord" and pursue available resources. Hillcrest, he said, has done "an awesome job" at preparing Johnson and another residency participant, Aaron Wine. "They have reading assignments, weekly training ... and they are learning the nuts and bolts of what it takes to plant a church," Duke said. "It's been a great pilot project, and we hope to duplicate it across the state," Duke said of the church planting residency. "I'd love to see 20 of them in the next few years intensively preparing people for planting." He calls the strategy "church planting in Alabama and beyond," something he hopes will foster an Acts 1:8 mentality in churches across the state. "We want to be a sending state," he said. "We need churches here but beyond as well." Duke's office at the SBOM helps recruit interns as well as helps churches set up internships or residencies to train them. "Basic Training Journey is an intensive three-day training for planters and core group members of new church plants," Duke said, noting that the next basic training is Oct. 17-19 at First Baptist Church, North Mobile, in Saraland. "God is bringing us some solid planters and amassing some core groups, but we need more sending churches," he said. "There's no way we can do this without CP funding," Duke said. "It costs a considerable amount to put these trainings on, and we give them away." The CP also provides salary support and start-up funds for church planters, as well as mobile chapels and other resources.
