North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry (NCBAM) is offering a special Aging Adult Leadership Track


It’s time again for one of the best things about autumn! Time for Camp Caraway’s Fall Festival of Fellowship for Senior Adults -- this year's theme is UNDER CONSTRUCTION! This popular annual event offers fun, fellowship, meaningful worship times and Bible studies, lots of entertainment as well as time for personal spiritual growth that you don’t want to miss! All at peak season at Camp Caraway near Asheboro, NC!


NCBAM will once again provide the Leadership Track for aging adult leaders or anyone interested in strengthening their church’s ministry to aging adults. The three sessions include:

• Dr. Sandy Gregory, director, NCBAM: The Church as an Heirloom
• Yvetta Smith, east regional director: Recreational Model of Ministry
• NCBAM Staff Members: Informal Panel Discussion


NCBAM will also provide an evidence-based Fall Prevention session that includes fun ways to combine personal worship time with exercises that improve strength, flexibility and balance.


Keith Henry, chief operating officer for Baptist Children’s Homes, will present on BCH’s international outreach in Guatemala—an orphanage that will benefit from this year’s silent auction.


Contact Camp Caraway to register for the conference. Day passes for NCBAM’s Leadership Track are $25 per day and include lunch.


Call NCBAM at 1.877.506.2226 for more information about the Leadership Track.
