Bro. Dan Jessup joined FBC in the summer of 2015 when he became the director of Master Ministries. Before his arrival, Bro. Jessup had spent almost 20 years as an ordained pastor working as an assistant at churches in Pennsylvania and Virginia. During that time he was an active youth director, chapel speaker, Bible class teacher, bus ministry director, children’s ministry pastor, adult Sunday School teacher, academy administrator, and most of all a successful Master Clubs director at the Lighthouse Baptist Church of Winchester, Virginia! FBC and Master Ministries have a great expectation that the Lord will use Bro. Jessup to give direction to the Loving and Leading Conference and to edify the children and youth ministries of our respective churches.

Master Clubs, a children’s discipleship program through Master Ministries, is headquartered right here at First Baptist Church. Each year churches across the country contact us to learn about Master Clubs but much of this communication is done through e-mail or phone conversation. If your church is interested in starting a children’s discipleship program, or if you are seeking to switch from AWANA or another well-known program, please join Director Daniel Jessup for a very informative session that will give delegates answers to questions such as, “What makes Master Clubs different from all other children’s discipleship programs?” or “How can our church switch from our current program and use Master Clubs?” If you are at the LLC specifically for the Master Clubs training track then this would be an excellent session to begin your weekend!

Do you know the addresses of your bus riders? Do you know if/when a bus rider has come to a saving knowledge of Christ? How about when someone off your route was baptized? You can organize to evangelize and disciple through your bus ministry, and one of the indirect results of doing so will be the legal protection it affords your church and ministry. Join us as we determine to improve our records and results in the Bus Ministry.

Children love music! Are you prepared with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs for your children's ministry? In this session we will be "unplugged"- no electricity, no screens, and no music other that what the Lord affords us to make ourselves. Join us to learn the what, why and how of music when working with children in Sunday School, Junior Church, Master Clubs, Bus Route, Vacation Bible School, etc. Such ideas as the song service, song selection, song leading, and helpful resources will all be included. Do not make the mistake of leaving this vital, spiritual facet out of your children's ministry.

The most often neglected segment of our bus route is a parent. Are you effectively reaching the mothers and fathers of your bus riders? Do you desire to see more parents come to a saving knowledge of Christ and follow Him as a disciple and church member? Let’s work and improve to see us lose bus riders because now mom and dad are bringing them to church!
