Guidance for inviting visiting preachers

"Receiving the ministry of visiting preachers is a privilege and a wonderful expression of our fellowship across the churches.

It is a great opportunity for mutual encouragement and support. Obviously, we trust that the visiting preacher will lead the worship and minister the Word in a way that will build up the fellowship, but the receiving church can also encourage the preacher.

Clearly this happens during the visit, but it begins with the help and guidance given well before the date of the service. Often, but not always, this is done by the Church Secretary."

Above is a short extract from Guidance for inviting visiting preachers, an NBA leaflet produced by the NBA Ministry Group. (see below)

There is also a brief document below called 'Settlement Process'.
 


There are two documents below relating to the role of a moderator in a Baptist Church. One is 'Moderator - leaflet for Moderators' which is for the person considering the role. The other is 'Moderator - a leaflet for the church' which is a brief guide for the church
