Encouraging, Equipping, and Engaging Ideas for Local Church Leaders

I’m excited to finally be able to introduce to you a new resource for local church leaders—!

For many years, God has placed a passion in my heart for independent Baptist leaders to strive together for the faith of the Gospel (Philippians 1:27.) I thank God for friends and spiritual leaders around the world who have sharpened and encouraged me in the work of the Gospel. In that spirit, our team has been working for months on a new resource website called (based upon Philippians 1:27.)

Just as our annual Spiritual Leadership Conference brings leaders together for mutual edification, even so, our prayer is that will be a Spiritual Leadership Conference every day—online, at no charge!

This site brings together a dynamic and diverse group of like-minded independent Baptist contributors—men and women who are leading the way in fruitful, local church ministry. And we’ve labored to build a strong initial library of resources—from ministry articles, to sermon helps, sermon outlines, videos, illustrations, powerpoint slides, podcasts, and more. It provides excellent resources for:

  • Pastors and Church Staff Members
  • Deacons and Lay Leaders
  • Parents and Families
  • Sunday School Teachers
  • Youth Workers
  • Christian Educators
  • And Many Others…

After much work, we launch this site with hopeful prayers that it will truly begin to encourage and equip you in a biblical philosophy of ministry.

Click the photo above to visit this exciting new site. Read the welcome post, watch the tutorial video—and then be sure to use the resources! I believe biblical ministries will be greatly strengthened by the collective wisdom of so many proven leaders!


  1. God bless you Brother Chappell.
    Praying for you, your ministry, and family.
