Dear Evangelists,

2019 is off to a great start!  We are gearing up for our E4E (Ephesians 4 Evangelists) Summit, and soon after that, the Empower Conference in Irving!

E4E Evangelism Summit & Retreat, Falls Creek, OK: Feb. 11-13
This coming week, we'll be gathering in beautiful Falls Creek, OK (about 2 hours north of Dallas) for our E4E Summit & Retreat.   We are excited about this great opportunity for a time of fellowship, worship, prayer and strategizing,  F eb. 11-13, 2019.  Several of our Texas evangelists and their wives, along with our SBTC State Evangelism Director, Shane Pruitt, and several Texas pastors will be in attendance.  

We are partnering with SBC leadership from across the U.S., to pray and discuss issues facing churches and evangelists, and work together to come up with some new initiatives and ways we can reach those around us with the Good News of Christ.  We look forward to coming back with a great report to share with those of you who are not able to attend the E4E Summit.
