As the conference drew to a close, an overarching emphasis was placed on encouraging churches across the state of Oklahoma to return to their neighborhoods and commit to starting one new class or small group this fall. With a target date of Sept. 7, the focus of the statewide initiative is how the BGCO and their various ministry divisions can assist churches to start relational groups that will help people connect to a local church.
The theme for the initiative is “ReConnect,” and was kicked off Jan. 26 at a pre-conference prayer meeting. The initiative will gain ground in February through Town Hall #NewGroups on Twitter, and at a Transform Conference in late March.
