NextGen, men’s & women’s ministry events slated

IRVING Pastors age 40 and younger are invited to a NextGen Pastor’s Network reception and couples are invited to a Men’s/Women’s Dinner during the Empower Conference in Irving Feb. 26-27. 

The reception and the dinner will occur simultaneously Monday from 4:30-6 p.m. at the Irving Convention Center. 

“A light dinner will be provided, and as always, NextGen pastors will walk away with some valuable resources and other giveaways,” Tony Wolfe, SBTC director of pastor/church relations, said. “This is an excellent opportunity for young pastors to network and be encouraged and challenged.”  

Wolfe recommended that all young pastors attend to learn more about the heartbeat of the SBTC NextGen Pastor’s Network. For more information, email 

Barrett and Jenifer Johnson of INFO for Families will present “Celebrating the Differences: How to Bring Out the Best in your Spouse” during the Men’s/Women’s Dinner.

INFO (Imperfect and Normal Families Only) for Families is a marriage coaching ministry for newlyweds, marriages in midlife and couples considering marriage. The Johnsons have been married 27 years and have five children ages 10-25 and three grandchildren.

Lance Crowell, SBTC men’s ministry director, said everyone is welcome to attend the dinner, which will include an update on SBTC men’s and women’s ministry planning for 2018. 

Last year was the first Men’s/Women’s Dinner, and it sold out. Cost is $15 per person, and reservations can be made at by clicking on “register” and then “meals.”
