Contextual Clarity: Understanding your community and the unique
doorways and platforms for the Gospel

Hal Haller, Church Planting Director of the New York Baptist Convention, will address our Association in a special training on the effective contextualization of the Gospel:
February 23, 2017TBBA Office | 1060 W. Busch Blvd., Tampa FL 3361210:00 a.m. to noonHaller will be presenting vital perspectives for all Pastors, Church Planters and those who bring Good News in and through Tampa Bay.   We all love Tampa Bay!  We love her people, we love her diversity, we love the variety of neighborhoods and people groups. What can we do to connect Good News to your assigned set of friends and neighbors?

Let's ask the Lord for a glimpse of His eyesight, to learn to see our neighbors in a fresh light.
Every unique person and every unique group of people has bridges and barriers to the Gospel.  Good and bad woven into their culture and their personalities. Speaking as one missionary to another, what have you found to be the doorways that are wide open for entry of good news?

Upon which unique platforms are you leading your church as they live and speak the timeless, unchanging salvation of Jesus.   Please RSVP with Robert at in order that we may prepare for you. This resource is provided by the generosity of contributing TBBA churches.
