PHOENIX (BP) – Southern Baptists will learn more about the newly revised Christian Standard Bible (CSB) translation at the Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting in Phoenix June 13-14.
LifeWay Christian Resources will host a free breakfast focusing on “Discipleship through the Word.”
LifeWay President and CEO Thom S. Rainer, Michael Kelley, director of discipleship, and Daniel Im, director of church multiplication, will address the essential role of Bible engagement in the process of discipleship. Christian music artists Keith and Kristyn Getty will lead a time of worship during the event.
The free breakfast will be held Tuesday, June 13 at 7 a.m. in North Hall A (Level 300) of the Phoenix Convention Center. Doors open at 6:30 a.m. Attendees will receive free resources worth more than $70, including a copy of the new CSB Study Bible and a LifeWay gift card.
