A Message from Our Executive Director
 
Summer is a key time in ministry work for Arkansas! Summertime is normally when we see great numbers of students saved, called to ministry, and respond to the call to go deeper in discipleship. Summer 2020 may be unusual, but with the extra free time that many students and families have, it can become a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that churches and parents must take advantage of to make incredible life change become a reality. Learn more about how you can use this summer to its fullest.

In this newsletter, you’ll find resources and stories from some very creative and strategic churches. I hope you find inspiration from your fellow Arkansas Baptists to encourage you as we strive to make great impact during this unusual summer.
