Welcome to the inaugural blog of the Church Planting and Missions Development Group (CPMD) of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. Our team is excited about launching this new ministry resource that we trust will prove both inspirational and informational for you in the days to come.
At Cross the Culture, our focus is assisting you and your church in becoming the very best at helping people in your community and around the world become spiritually mature followers of Jesus Christ. We want to help you be a part of the life-transforming work of God’s Spirit in your home, your community, in North America and around the world!
In the posts to come you will discover that the contributors to this blog, though different in race, gender and heart language, all have several things in common. First, they all passionately love Jesus and live to serve Him faithfully every moment of their lives. Second, they have a passion to help you help those around you become Christ-followers. Third, they all have a wealth of practical ministry experience in the areas of church planting and global missions. So, check in frequently and spend some time with us. Some days you will be inspired. Some days you will be informed. Who knows, some days maybe both!
First up – a series on the Great Commission. We will examine the nature of the Great Commission given by Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20. It’s paramount, it’s personal and it’s pervasive.
