Free Webinar: “The Question Churches Rarely Ask”
For churches that are committed to taking care of their pastors but are on tight budgets, there is always a hidden concern: “What if our pastor gets sick or injured and can no longer work? How could we take care of him financially and still have money in the budget to call a new pastor?” With deacons’ forethought and careful planning, your church can avoid an awkward and costly dilemma.
Dale Whiting, a faithful layperson in the GARBC, chartered life underwriter, and friend of pastors and churches, is at your disposal to work through disability issues. This free-of-charge webinar, hosted by the Regular Baptist Web Community, is available two dates and times (Oct. 7 at 6:30 p.m. CDT, and Oct. 14 at 8:30 p.m. CDT) to best suit your deacons’ schedules.
