Myers-Mallory Offering provides Bible study software to Alabama pastors

Ministers sit with laptops open at the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions for training

Thanks to the Myers-Mallory State Missions Offering, 50 Alabama Baptist pastors received a gift of deeply discounted Bible study software during a Jan. 23 training.

Rob Jackson, director of the SBOM office of church health, said the gift came at the request of Rick Lance, SBOM executive director.

“Dr. Lance saw the value in Logos Bible Software as a helpful study tool and suggested we make it available at a discount to the first ministers who enrolled for our training session today,” Jackson said. “The pastors had a buy-in, but they had significant savings from the retail cost since we purchased in bulk. This program was made possible by the Myers-Mallory (State Missions) Offering from our churches.”

Jackson partnered with Ken Allen, director of the office of LeaderCare, to sponsor Logos training as part of the “Intentional Leaders” series, now in its second cycle of four emphases: person, pastor, preacher and pathfinder.

Attendees heard from facilitator Shawn Grubb, customer success manager at Logos and a Southern Baptist pastor in Pennsylvania.

“I’ve been in ministry for more than 28 years, and I call it being ‘dual-vocational,’ though some call it bivocational,” he said. “I use Logos every day for preaching, teaching and personal Bible study, and it’s been a wonderful tool for me as a pastor.”
