“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing… This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”
– John 15:5-8

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
– Galatians 5:22-23a

Texas Baptist Educator’s Network

The Texas Baptist Educator’s Network connects leaders of education and discipleship ministries in churches across the state, to provide continuing education, fellowship, and support. There is no one-size-fits-all discipleship plan for every church, but we can learn from and encourage each other as we design ministries for our unique congregations. All pastors, directors, and ministers who oversee the education and discipleship ministries of their church are included and invited to participate. See below for more information:


Church staff leaders with responsibilities for Bible study and discipleship will gain valuable ministry insight and encouragement/connection with colleagues from across the state. Learn more…


These fellowship groups of education and discipleship ministers participate in a fellowship dinner every year at Annual Meeting and monthly or quarterly lunches for fellowship and discussion. Learn more…


If you have a fellowship group in another region you would like listed here, please contact Keith Lowry.
