Missions Education and Ministries

Linda ClarkWelcome 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: lclark1213@hotmail.com  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,

Linda Clark
