    JAN 26-  BAPTIST MENS RETREAT SOUTH MOUNTAIN CAMP PERRY TUTTLE SPEAKER

    JAN 27 -

    1. BAPTIST MENS RETREAT SOUTH MOUNTAIN CAMP PERRY TUTTLE SPEAKER
    2. Operation InAsMuch Training:  Operation Inasmuch is a one day missions blitz during which churches do a wide variety of projects locally as a platform to building relationships, sharing the gospel, and meeting needs.  I hope your churches will take advantage of this training as a way to involve as many of their members as possible in local missions in their own communities.  Each event will be on a Saturday from 9 am until noon with refreshments before and during the training.  The session will end by noon so that participants can make in home and have an entire afternoon to do the other things that are demanding attention.

      Who is Invited?  Any church that is planning to participate, or even contemplating participating, in Operation Inasmuch in 2018 should attend.  Churches that have already done OIAM in the past can be great resources for newer churches that are planning their first OIAM.  County Coordinators, potential church coordinators, pastors, and other OIAM local leaders will find this a helpful event.

      What Is the Training and Why Should I Attend? David Crocker, founder of OIAM, will lead the training in Regions 6-10 and John Daugherty, current CEO of OIAM, will lead the trainings in Region 1-5.   One of the most helpful things for a new church is hearing how others in the area have done OIAM, what worked and didn't, and how preparation and promotion was done.  A church that has never done OIAM will learn how they can raise funds, some ideas on what projects they can do, how to plan and promote, and how OIAM can mobilize over half of their church members to impact their communities.

      When and Where?  9 am - 12 pm on Saturday  January 27 - Region 8 - Greater Cleveland County Baptist Association, Shelby  Please register at: http://baptistsonmission.org/Missions/North-Carolina/Operation-Inasmuch.

    *FINANCIAL & TAX SEMINAR FOR PASTORS AND CHURCH STAFF, March 5: Shelby, NC

    This seminar with be led by Davis Blount (Senior Consultant/Compensation and Benefit Services group of the Baptist State Convention). Seminar information:

    • Developing a compensation package for pastors and church staff can seem daunting, but it doesn't have to be. There is no such thing as a "cookie cutter" approach, and there are many things to consider such as salary, employer provided benefits, tax savings strategies, and more.

    • Is your staff ready for retirement? What cash and non-cash benefits can the church provide its staff? What are the latest tax and administrative rules implemented during the last year that affect how our churches do business? How do you handle designated contributions given to your church, and how are you reporting those funds?

    "Let all things be done decently and in order" - based on 1 Corinthians 14:40 is the theme of the 2018 financial and tax workshops presented by senior consultant Davis Blount with the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina to address these and other issues. The workshops are designed for ministers, financial administrators, treasurers, church committees and other interested lay leaders. Topics will include:

    •           Preparing for retirement.

    •           Compensation planning.

    •           The Church Retirement Plan.

    •           Employer provided benefits.

    •           Managing designated funds.

    •           Reporting charitable giving.

    •           Tax updates.

    •           FAQs from affiliated churches

    •           Participant questions and answers.

    The locations and registration are on our web site at ncbaptist.org/financialseminar
