The State Convention of Baptists in Ohio (SCBO) has designated 2019 as the year of encouragement. Our goal is to encourage as many pastors and churches as possible as they continue to labor in the field.
The importance of encouragement to the work of the ministry is referenced throughout scripture:
Josiah encouraged those he placed in the house of the Lord:
“And he set the priest in their duties and encouraged them for the service of the house of the Lord.”
II Chronicles 35:2
Paul wanted to encourage the Roman Christians as he wrote:
“That is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.”
Needless to say, it is important for all of us to be encouraged.
Therefore, SCBO in connection with our state convention president, Ryan Strother, has created what we are calling, “The Reach Ohio Encouragement Tour.” This tour is set to begin on February 26, 2019 and run through July 2019. There are six (6) locations total spread across Ohio. You can receive all of the details by clicking here.
The purpose of this tour is for us to hear from you, the leaders across Ohio, and answer questions. We also want you to hear what our president sees as the future for Ohio Baptists.
Make plans now to attend one of these gatherings. For further information contact Steve Hopkins (614) 601-6820 or Dwayne lee (614) 601-6824.
In His Service,
SCBO President Ryan Strother
