“Emerge: Baptist Witness in the 21st Century” combines a Ministers Conference and Orientation to American Baptist Life, where conferees will explore emergent themes in Baptist theology of the Holy Spirit, postmodern witness and third millennium mission, in this 200th anniversary year of the historic Judson mission to Burma. The conference meets in Orlando, Florida, January 6-9, 2014. Bible study teachers, worship experiences, workshops and speakers will find their themes in Acts 1:8. The 2014 conference marks the third time that the orientation conference (for Seminarians and new-to-ABC ministers) and the Ministers Conference, sponsored by ABCUSA, will be integrated into one event.
