The Southern Baptist Convention Pastors’ Conference will provide $1,000 travel scholarships to pastors of “average-sized churches” who cannot otherwise afford to attend the Pastors’ Conference and SBC annual meeting this summer in Phoenix, the event’s leadership team announced on the SBC Voices blog.
The June 11-12 conference will feature pastors of churches ranging in size from 60 to 500, including David Choi of Church of the Beloved and Michael Allen of Uptown Baptist Church, both in Chicago.
Pastors’ Conference President Dave Miller told Baptist Press larger churches traditionally have helped fund the event. This year, conference costs have been covered by other sponsors, freeing the conference’s traditional sponsors to help in a new way.
“God has provided for the Pastors’ Conference, so we are asking people to help by sending smaller and average church pastors who couldn’t afford to come.”
Pastors can apply for the scholarships at SBCVoices.com beginning April 10 at 11 a.m. Eastern Time.
