2020 Fall Virtual Mission Connection Event Registration

For fall 2020, Mission Connection is LIVE -- and virtual.  Each year we bring in church planters desiring to make connections with Arkansas Baptists.  This year you can meet them on your screen!

  • Start with a desire to lead your group to be a prayer partner with a planter. 
  • Groups = associations, churches, missions education groups, women's and men's ministry groups, Sunday School classes, youth groups, and more! 
  • Partner with a planter who will send you prayer requests regularly. Some do monthly newsletters, some use social media.  
  • PRAY! Lead your group to pray 
  • Go when called!

We're holding a ZOOM video call (and you can call in by phone) with each of the planters below on their assigned day. Each planter will make a 15-minue presentation at 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m on their assigned day. You can attend either call. You'll have a chance to ask questions!
