Discipleship/Small Groups -- Regathering Part II: Leadership Toolkit

It is imperative that the discipleship and small group ministries of the church function with intentionality through every season. This tool aims to help pastors and church leaders think through ways to navigate this season of ministry with an eye on the next.

Zoom Video Conferencing: Best Practices to Prevent Trolling/ZoomBombing

People who wish to do harm are also sheltering-in-place and have more time on their hands to spread vile language and images. As churches and ministries are ramping up their video conferencing using platforms like Zoom, these meetings are targets of people trolling these meetings and “ZooomBombing” them.

RightNow Media

We are partnering with RightNow Media, an online video library and training resource. With this partnership, all SBTC Pastors and the first 300 ministerial staff members are able to begin a free personal account.

Additionally, RightNow Media is offering free access to a limited library of selected video series coving a wide range of topics for pastors, leaders, small groups, students and kids.

VIDEO: "Crisis, Conflict and Care"

Women are hurting and in crisis all around us; they don’t know how to get along with others or be helpful. As women in leadership we often are approached with the problems, personal struggles, conflicts, and pain of others. We will explore how to minister comfort, counseling, and conflict resolution when faced with crisis and conflict.
