For many years, God has placed a passion on Dr. Paul Chappell’s heart for independent Baptist leaders to strive together for the faith of the Gospel (Philippians 1:27.) In that spirit, our team has been working for months on a new resource website called (based upon Philippians 1:27.)

Just as the 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!

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 resources for:

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

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!

Everything on the site is FREE, so be sure to tell others who could benefit as well!

Finally—much thanks to a team of about 20 people who have labored in addition to their normal work responsibilities to  bring this site and it’s wealth of content into being over the past 8 months. They’ve done a marvelous job and we sincerely pray it will bless your work.

  • I was just listening to Dr. Chappell’s podcast for the month and wishing there were more ladies’ resources available. My son Andrew mentioned the new site this morning when I was talking to him, and I was so glad it had some ladies’ ministry resources included. Thank you to all of you who have been working on it – I’m one pastor’s wife who is looking forward to being inspired and helped in my own Christian growth, as well as my ladies’!
