Partnered to Plant: Sola 5 Conference 2018

The 2018 Sola 5 Conference will be held from 5–7 September 2018 at Brackenhurst Baptist Church in Johannesburg, South Africa. The theme is “Partnered to Plant,” and we will focus on what it looks like for churches in association to partner together in church plants.

We anticipate a good time around the Word. We will hear about church planting from six Sola 5 pastors—Tyrell Haag (Heritage Baptist Church, South Africa); Phil Hunt (Kitwe Church, Zambia); Sammy Leballo (Moletsani Baptist Church, South Africa); Mario Maneville (Reformed Faith Mission Community Church, South Africa); Conrad Mbewe (Kabwata Baptist Church, Zambia); and Chris Woolley (Midrand Chapel, South Africa)—have opportunity for questions and answers at a panel discussion, and be exposed to various church planting initiatives within Sola 5.

There is a cost of R100 per delegate. Registration information will follow shortly.
