New for 2020! The ABSC Missions Team is combining two popular workshops (Literacy Missions and Bible Storying) into one incredible Literacy Missions training event! Join other Arkansas Baptists who are committed to reaching people for Christ through literacy missions for the Literacy Missions Workshop held at the Baptist Building, April 3-4.


Online registration will be open in January, 2020.   Once open, the deadline for registration is March 20.


Participants have the option of choosing one of the following:

  • English as a Second Language – Learn how to minister to Internationals who need a better grasp of the English language
  • Tutoring Children and Youth – Learn how to serve school-aged children and youth who need help with basic skills and/or schoolwork
  • Bible Storying – Learn how to lead a Story Fellowship Group, connect your story to a story from Scripture, and craft Bible stories for use in local and international ministries

ESL and Tutoring trainings are led by North American Mission Board/Send Relief certified trainers. Upon completion of the workshop, participants receive certification given through the National Literacy Missions Partnership.  Bible Storying training is led by Jamie Naramore, ABSC Missions Team, who received International Mission Board training in this area, served on the international field, and has started multiple storying groups.
