More on the annual meeting...
Each year the Biblical Recorder is allowed a few minutes on the program of the annual meeting of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina to talk about our ministry. Other convention related ministries are also given a segment of time on the program. I have some very important things to say in my presentation on Tuesday morning, Nov. 7 around 11:05. I hope you will be in the convention hall to hear my comments.
In the convention’s exhibit hall, look for the Biblical Recorder’s booth. As you know, we give away some great prizes each year. We are grateful to the good people at Olive Tree Bible Software. They are giving you a chance to win a Bible software package valued above $700.
Olive Tree Bible Software has been inspiring people to connect with God and the Bible through technology since 1998. They want pastors and laity to be well-equipped, able to study God’s Word wherever and whenever you want. The Olive Tree Bible app gives instant access to commentaries, dictionaries, Greek and Hebrew tools, devotionals and more. They offer thousands of reliable, Biblical resources for purchase – individually or in bundles. If you make notes or highlights, these will sync across any of your devices. The app works on iOS, Android, Mac, Widows and Kindle devices. You’ll never have to be far from your Bible and study tools ever again.
I’ve used Olive Tree for more than ten years. It’s on my iPhone, iPad and laptop. I find it easy to use and very reasonably priced. Drop by our booth and register to win the Olive Tree software package or one of three CSB Leather Study Bibles we will be giving away, compliments of Holman Bibles.
I look forward to seeing you in Greensboro, November 5-7, at the Pastor’s Conference and the annual meeting.
