About Groups and Faith Development
I’m so excited about the future of the Groups and Faith Development of the Georgia Baptist Mission Board. Yeah it’s a new name and a lot of new faces around the offices. The Groups and Faith Development of the Georgia Baptist Mission Board exists to partner with leaders to share Christ with the lost, equip people in spiritual growth and reproduce disciples. Our mission can be summarized in that we are making disciples through groups to reduce lostness.
The vision of our ministry is focused in three specific areas:
- Sunday School – to equip leaders and inspire churches.
- Small Groups – to connect with leaders and develop networks that make disciples.
- Vacation Bible School – to train leaders and emphasize evangelism.
Our goals and prayer is that our efforts will increase the following:
- Sunday School/Small Group Enrollment
- Average Sunday School/Small Group Attendance
- Sunday School/Small Group Leaders/ Multipliers Trained
- Number of Classes/Groups
- Prospects Discovered and Assimilated into Classes/Groups
This team values spiritual growth which comes about through Bible teaching and prayer. We also value people and this shown through sharing the gospel with the lost and caring for those in the family of God. We believe in the importance of multiplication by starting new classes/groups, enlisting new leaders and equipping leaders. We will continue to partner with Associational Missionaries and other Associational Leaders, Pastors and Ministers of Education, Sunday School and/or Small Group Directors and Vacation Bible School Directors/Teams, Age Group Staff Members and Sunday School/Small Group/VBS Teachers and Leaders.
