Missions Education and Ministries
Welcome to the missions education information page! The articles in this section are written to provide you with the latest resources and information to help you and your church fulfill our missions mandate.
Every month’s postings will include ideas you can use in your small group setting, emphases for use in worship services, projects your church can do to share Christ in your neighborhood and community, and information about Southern Baptist mission efforts around the world.
l serve as SEIBA’s missions education consultant and would be glad to work with you, your pastor, and church missions development team to help you develop a strategic approach to engaging in missions efforts in our region, in Indiana, in North America, and overseas. Please don’t hesitate to contact me by texting me (502.595.8473) or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org I am available to speak to women’s groups and retreats and to make mission presentations.
The theme for 2019 is “Unshakable Pursuit” and it speaks both to God’s pursuit of us for His salvation and work as well as how we should approach discipling others to live on mission for Jesus. Finding how we can share Christ naturally is one of a believer’s greatest discoveries. As churches in our association embrace our strategy of having more gospel conversations, learning about missions can be a very real part of reaching out in God’s love to others. Please don’t hesitate to call me or email me if you need missions resources or information. I look forward to hearing from you!
In His Service,

If you missed Missions Lifeline this year, you missed a great blessing! First Baptist Church of Charlestown led a mini missions day camp, and several North American and international missionaries participated and their presentations were motivational. The annual missions event is sponsored by Indiana Woman’s Missionary Union/Women’s Ministries and is designed to inform and equip all ages to be on missions and make disciples. The 2020 event is already being planned, so watch for the date. Begin planning now to encourage your church members to attend!

The annual MK (missionary kid) Re-Entry retreat will be held next August at Highland Lakes. Every year incoming college students from all over the globe gather for a week of activities and speakers on topics that will be of interest to their adjustment to life in the United States. Because many of them were born overseas or have lived most of their lives there, this event is critical to help them face the challenges that will arise due to their unfamiliarity with American culture. WMU needs the support of Indiana churches to make this project a reality!
The estimated cost per student is $400 and your church or individuals can send donations to the state offices designated for “MK Retreat.” We are co-sponsoring this event with Kentucky WMU and must do our part! Contact Linda Clark for additional ways your church can be involved in this important event.
