Lone Star Founders Fraternal
(N.B. For updated info, see Lone Star Founders Fraternal.)
For a few years now I've wanted to organize a local fellowship of like-minded SBC church leaders and future leaders who could meet for mutual encouragement, edification, and enhancement of ministry and personal spirituality. There was a similar group, though more ecumenical, that met in the Fort Worth area that was meeting my needs in this area, but it has been dissolved.
So, at the encouragement of others, I put the wheels in motion for the Lone Star Founders Fraternal, for those friendly to the aims & values of Founders Ministries. We will primarily be meeting in the NE Dallas area and will have our first official meeting on Saturday September 9th, at 9AM. I welcome input from those interested with regard to when to topics to discuss and how to mutually encourage and edify one another.
I envision activities centered around the discussion of theology & practice, perhaps with guest speakers, Deo volente. At our first meeting, we will better define what will meet the needs of the group, so bring your ideas to the table there/then or in the comments section.
The Lone Star Founders Fraternal promotes the fellowship and edification of SBC pastors/elders and future church leaders (e.g., theological students) who seek to glorify God by the preservation & promotion of the doctrines of grace in SBC church life. To the end of fellowship and unity, we request at least general agreement with the "5 Solas" as described in the Cambridge Declaration, but welcome Baptists who can generally affirm any of the following: London Baptist Confessions of 1644/46 or 1689 or the Abstract of Principles (1858).
Please post your comments with any suggestions regarding material or logistical aspects. As a general rule, the plan is to meet every 2nd Saturday at 9AM for breakfast followed by some sort of semi-formal program of study and/or discussion.
At least initially, we will meet at Providence Church.
