Block Party Trailer
This trailer provides the basic resources needed to conduct an evangelistic party in any area of our community. We are providing this trailer to help churches maximize their outreach budget and help some that would not otherwise have the resources to conduct an evangelistic party. We also want to help churches know how to reach out to lost people through an evangelistic party.   DOWNLOAD

Block Party Trailer Protocols
I. TRANSPORTATION

Church-owned vehicles
Many churches are acquiring an automobile for their pastors' church-related travel. Here's one reason why. If a church owns or leases a car and the board adopts a resolution restricting use of the car to church-related activities, the pastor need report no income or deductions related to it. And better yet, there are no accountings, reimbursements, allowances, or record-keeping requirements, a relief for most pastors.   DOWNLOAD

Inurement to Insiders
Churches and religious organizations, like all exempt organizations under IRC Section 501(c)(3), are prohibited from engaging in activities that result in inurement of the church’s or organization’s income or assets to insiders (such as persons having a personal and private interest in the activities of the organization).   DOWNLOAD
How to Help Make Your Church Friendly
Southern Baptist churches are autonomous and establish their own policies regarding ordination. Ordination is therefore an act of the local congregation and not of the denomination.   DOWNLOAD

Calling of an Interim Pastor - MWBC
The period in which the congregation is without its pastor is called the "interim period."  This refers to the time between the former pastor leaves and the new one comes.  Providing someone to preach in each worship service during the interim is referred to as "filling" or "supplying the pulpit."    DOWNLOAD
Normally, a Pastor Search Committee is selected by the congregation and reports to the congregation.  It should work on behalf of the congregation to recommend a pastor to the congregation, but it does not have the power to obligate the church nor make the choice of the new pastor.    DOWNLOAD
