The newly formed North Carolina Pastors Network (NCPN, ncpastors.net) and its affiliate organization, the American Pastors Network (americanpastorsnetwork.net), announced its statewide initiative to inform N.C. pastors of the mission and vision of NCPN, encourage them to form area chapters to mobilize and support local pastors and advise them of critical issues facing the state and nation.
“The North Carolina Pastors Network exists for the purpose of encouraging pastors to speak the truth boldly so they can equip their congregations to be salt and light in our culture,” said NCPN President Dave Kistler.
“Our prayer is that the network we are building through NCPN will bring together biblically faithful pastors who will courageously speak truth on biblical, social, and policy issues, with the result that thousands of biblically minded believers across the state will step out and impact the culture for Christ.”
NCPN will also be joined by several partners including Bobbie Meyer from Carolina Pregnancy Care Fellowship, Mark Creech from the Christian Action League, Tami Fitzgerald from the North Carolina Values Coalition, John Rustin from the North Carolina Family Policy Council and Randy Wilson from Watchmen on the Wall (Family Research Council).
The three-day initiative, which will take place May 27-29, includes eight regional meetings at churches across the state:
Tuesday, May 27 – 9 a.m. at Mt. Vernon Baptist Church, Boone; 2 p.m. at Pole Creek Baptist Church, Candler; and 6:30 p.m. at Tri-Cities Baptist Church, Conover
Wednesday, May 28 – 9 a.m. at First Baptist Church, Charlotte; and 2 p.m. at Calvary Baptist Church, Winston Salem
Thursday, May 29 – 9 a.m. at Crossroads Fellowship, Raleigh; 2 p.m. at Village Baptist Church, Fayetteville; and 6:30 p.m. at Memorial Baptist Church, Greenville
