Coming up on its 67th year, the State Evangelism Conference is a place to find inspiration, according to Sammy Gilbreath, director of the office of evangelism for the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions (SBOM).
Gilbreath said there are two sides to the SBOM evangelism office - instruction and inspiration. Throughout the year Gilbreath and his staff instruct and train Alabama Baptists in how to share their faith or how to put an evangelism strategy in place, he explained.
"The other very valuable side is inspiration where we encourage people," Gilbreath said. "It's one thing to know how to do evangelism, it's another thing to do it."
And that's just what the State Evangelism Conference is meant to do - encourage pastors and church staff with good preaching and good music, Gilbreath said, so they return to their home church ready to lead.
Gilbreath said he continues to receive emails after each year's conference saying how the preaching, time of worship and fellowship made a difference in participants' lives. One such email confessed the heart of a pastor who was ready to resign and leave his ministry. In his email the man said the conference helped put joy back in his life and he felt restored.

No one is a bigger believer in using GPS for intentional evangelism than Sammy Gilbreath, state director of evangelism for the Alabama State Board of Missions in Montgomery.
"GPS 2010 was great for us in Alabama," Gilbreath said. "Two Saturdays prior to Easter Sunday, we actually put a plastic bag with a Gospel witness on the doors of 989,000 Alabama homes. It gave our churches such a shot in the arm, especially those who were out in the community for the first time. All of a sudden, our churches said, 'We can do this and reach people we haven't reached.' And 2010 gave us a good bump toward 2012."
Gilbreath and his staff have set up 12 districts in Alabama and are inviting pastors and key laypeople in a district to attend a two-hour GPS clinic to learn about downloadable GPS resources, a free mapping service for a church's immediate area and available deals for three-for-one billboard advertising across Alabama.
"We have also put together a task force for every attractional event we can think of," Gilbreath said. The task force is made up of experts with practical experience in doing a particular event.
For 2012, Gilbreath and his team are visiting every association and asking local churches to commit to do four attractional events during the year.
"Churches already do some of these, such as revivals, Vacation Bible Schools and fall festivals. So they only have to commit to do one more. They also have to commit to make the four events intentionally evangelistic."
Gilbreath believes the use of attractional events in 2012 will be even bigger than the successes of door-to-door evangelism in 2010 because such events give churches and pastors the opportunity to train their people on how to share their faith.
"Our office just does the planning and preparation and then we become cheerleaders. The churches have to make it happen," Gilbreath said. "GPS keeps us focused on planning for evangelism and prevents us from falling into a lull.
"Our goal," he said, reflecting GPS' long-term impact, "is to present the Gospel to every person in Alabama by 2020."

Sammy Gilbreath, director of evangelism for the Alabama State Board of Missions, called "GPS Across Alabama" the largest organized outreach ever attempted by Alabama Baptists. "When it was all said and done, Alabama Baptists put 980,000 packets of material on the doors of homes in Alabama," Gilbreath said.

"It was a great success - just tremendous," said Sammy Gilbreath, director of the SBOM's office of evangelism.
All three speakers "hit home runs," Gilbreath said, but attendees were especially challenged by Welch's message.
"He took the SBC statistics on baptisms and showed the terrible decline we've been facing since 1972 and he said, 'You're the group to turn this around. If this age group doesn't turn that around, it will be too late to stop it. You've got to get re-engaged. It's easy to think, I've done my thing and lived my life, but you've got to get back up to the plate and you've got to do this,'" Gilbreath said of Welch's message.
"The musicians were outstanding," Gilbreath said.
Sammy and his leadership in helping Alabama reach those who are lost without Christ."
Gilbreath is already looking forward to next year's conference, which will be hosted by Lakeside Baptist Church, Birmingham.
