OWENSBORO, Ky. (8/20/13) – “Super Saturday,” a program providing Baptists all over Kentucky a broad range of practical training for their worship teams, will celebrate its twentieth anniversary this year.
Owensboro’s Bellevue Baptist Church will host the event on September 17 with special guest Gary L. McIntosh, a church growth expert. The theme of Super Saturday is “Revving Up Your Ministry,” and will include morning worship, a two-hour morning conference, and two one-hour afternoon conferences.
Conferences offer education in church revitalization, discipleship, finances, specific age group training, worship, and music. The conferences provide training to pastors, ministers, and church volunteers, said Steve Rice, Church Consulting and Revitalization Team Leader for KBC. New to Super Saturday, a class on church safety.
Classes on safety will include, topics such as “How Safe is Your Church?” and "Church Safety." Educators will instruct on how to ensure the safety of church staff and members, planning and preparing for the unexpected emergency medical situation, and how to protect the church in "How Safe is Your Church?" In "Church Safety", attendees will learn the roles and responsibilities of a church security team, and how to make sure their church is really secure in case of threats of violence.
“It’s such a pressing issue in so many churches today,” Rice said.
Louisville hosted a past Super Saturday event that held 500 Baptists, and Lexington’s conference this weekend is said to have even more attendees. Bellevue Baptist Church was chosen because of its large campus. Organizers are projecting 400 participants at the September event, said Rice.
“Bellevue has been a gracious church partnering with us,” Rice said.
