BONIFAY — The 2014 State Evangelism Conference will be offered at First Baptist Church in Bonifay host the annual evangelistic meeting during the last week of March.

The Bonifay gathering will meet Thursday and Friday, March 27 and 28.

“Each day Florida Baptists will be encouraged and equipped by dynamic speakers and teachers from across the country,” said David Burton, lead strategist the Florida Baptist Convention’s Evangelism Group, which sponsors the event.

The conference is being held in two locations this year to increase accessibility for all Florida Baptist pastors, said Burton. “Our pastors are extremely busy these days meeting needs of their congregations. Conferences in two locations will make it easier for them to attend and not be absent for as long from their church field. Also travel and accommodations are expensive and this will help ease that burden.”

The theme of the two-day meeting is “Love-Share,” focusing on the Convention’s “Love Your Neighbor, Share Christ” evangelistic emphasis.

“An evangelism conference with a clear focus on reaching others for Christ is critical because so often we find churches and pastors losing their edge and heart for evangelism,” said Burton.

“Too many books, authors and conferences tell us what doesn't work today without ever showing and telling what does work. Sometimes complacency sets in the people our pastors are serving,” he added. “We intend to have a pastor return to his church with fresh, new energy, insight and compassion to help these people push back darkness and lostness.”
