Making disciples is commanded, not optional. On Thursday, February 27, 2020, Bradfordville is partnering with the Florida Baptist Convention and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary for a one-day training event designed for pastors, ministry leaders, and lay-leaders. You’ll sit under the teaching of seminary professors from NOBTS, learning about evangelism, preaching, theology, apologetics, women’s ministry, and church conflict. The day will be filled with worship times, breakout sessions, panel discussions, lunch, and giveaways. We’re excited to sharpen God’s servants for ministry. I invite you to register today and join us on Thursday, February 27.
