Seeking Ministers/Seeking Churches
CBFNC Webinar
Tuesday, July 16
11:00 a.m. – noon
Every minister and every church faces times of transition. Churches need leaders. Ministers need places to lead. How do the two groups meet? What are the trends in the "church search?" What are the best practices for the 21st-century free church, such as Baptists?

Seth Hix began as CBFNC Church Engagement Coordinator on June 1, 2017. After a 13-year career in church music, the pursuit of a new ministerial calling led Seth and his family to North Carolina, where he enrolled at Wake Forest School of Divinity. While at Wake Forest, Seth was a CBFNC Lolly Scholar. Seth has completed Intentional Interim Pastor Training (Phase 1 and 2) through the Center for Congregational Health, and the S.T.E.P. Interim Ministry training through the Center for Healthy Churches.

CBFNC is here for students!
CBFNC has 10 campus ministry groups on state campuses in NC and we partner with several other private college campuses who have groups as well. We would love to connect with students that you know are coming to these campuses so that we can reach out to them before they even get there.

Trust is an integral part of students connecting with people on campus. Helping them connect with people that you know and trust is very important as they navigate these new waters.
