Base Camp graphicRANDALLSTOWN, Md.–Colonial Baptist Church in Randallstown, Md., and the International Mission Board will host a ‘Base Camp’ missions training event on May 13-14.

What is a Base Camp? 

Base Camps are training and networking conferences for churches that have already committed to serve in Sub-Saharan Africa or other places around the globe. They’re great opportunities to hear testimonies of God’s work and pick up practical suggestions and new ministry techniques. Typical workshop seminars include: discipleship, leadership training, cultural insights, and more.

“I believe every Christian should go on at least one mission trip,” shared Robert Anderson, pastor of Colonial Baptist Church. He said this training will help those interested in missions to learn the basics of missions, to be more sensitive to other cultures, and to see how God can work through their efforts.

Connie Simon, chairman of short-term missions for Colonial, said people serving anywhere can use this information, which will include subjects such as how to obtain passports and shots to creative ways to share the Gospel.

Base Camp begins at 5:00pm on Friday, and will be held from 8:30am – 4:00pm on Saturday.

The registration fee is $45 until May 6th; $50 after May 6th, which includes materials, Friday evening meal, snacks, and Saturday lunch. Colonial Baptist Church is located at 9411 Liberty Road in Randallstown.
