SPRINGFIELD, IL – Leaders attending the Midwest Leadership Summit in Springfield came with questions about ministry in the region, and many found answers. Some 850 leaders from 12 states in the region attended the three-day event in Springfield January 18-20. In three worship settings and 70 breakouts, they considered their calling again and took home fresh training for ministry.
Pastors and church leaders from 9 Baptist state conventions filled the halls and ballrooms at the Crowne Plaza in Springfield IL. The main purpose of the event, as it has been since the 1950s, was equipping leaders for ministry that matches our north central territory.
Hear from some of the attendees and what they took away from the three day meeting.
