DULUTH — Georgia Baptists looking to add to their ministry toolbox will have two opportunities for doing so at GO Georgia this August, held in separate cities one week apart.
First Baptist Church in Jonesboro will serve as the site for the annual training event Aug. 16-17 while First Baptist in Statesboro will do the same Aug. 23-24. Each location will provide specialized training on more than 100 topics relatable to various facets of ministry, including music, children, youth, and discipleship.
After last year’s single-location GO Georgia held in Macon, the event will return to the two-location format it employed in 2017. That year, more than 1,500 pastors, laity, and church staff registered for the Athens and Tifton collection of breakout sessions, corporate worship, and general sessions.
Three main speakers will engage with readers around the central theme of “Story,” based on Psalm 78:3-4. On Friday evening Mark Croston, of LifeWay Christian Resources, will speak on “HIS Story.” Saturday morning’s general session speaker, Associate Professor and Dean at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary Jamie Dew, will address the topic of “MY Story.” Georgia Baptist pastor Levi Skipper, of Concord Baptist Church in Clermont, will be the Saturday afternoon speaker with the subject “OUR Story.”
For more information continue to check in at GOGeorgia.net. Both 2-day and 1-day registration options are available. The 2-day option, at $35, includes dinner Friday night as well as a continental breakfast and lunch Saturday. Directions as well as booking information for hotels is also available at the GO Georgia website. Other updates can be found through the Georgia Baptist Mission Board Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts.
