People Group Discovery Workshop - Northwest Arkansas

People Group Discovery Workshop - Northwest Arkansas

Elmdale Baptist Church
1700 W Huntsville Ave
Springdale, AR 72762

Because there are over 127 people groups in Arkansas, and half of them are either unreached or unengaged with the gospel, the Missions Team at the Arkansas Baptist State Convention would like to invite you to a Northwest Arkansas People Group Discovery Workshop. This will be a brief training for both pastoral and lay leadership who are working among internationals in your local context, in hopes that you will take these tools back to your churches and mobilize a team who can help discover unreached people groups in your area. This research will contribute to both a statewide Arkansas Baptists Ethno-Linguistic People Group Mapping Project as well as the IMB + NAMB initiative at www.peoplegroups.info.  The only cost involved will be that of your lunch at the local ethnic restaurant you are helping to map. 

Event Schedule:
10:00-10:45    Vision-casting and mapping tutorial at Elmdale
11:00-12:15    Lunch in pairs at a local ethnic restaurant
12:30-1:30     NWA Mapping Update, Next Steps, and Q&A at Elmdale

As a follow-up to this training we will also schedule a Zoom Video Conference for Monday, November 13th. The purpose of this conference call will simply be to share ideas and celebrate ways the mapping tools have been used in Northwest Arkansas. 

If you plan to attend the People Group Discovery Workshop, please RSVP by October 5th to jnaramore@absc.org or register for free on the form below. In the meantime, please spread the word to other area pastors, and invite any of your key leaders that might be available that day.

Thank you again for your partnership in reaching unreached people groups in Arkansas.
