Join us for CONFLUENCE 2024

A Georgia Baptist Collegiate Conference

What is Confluence?

Confluence is a gathering of college and university students from across Georgia who come together for one shared purpose: Jesus. They come from different places, different experiences, and even different cultures, but they share the same passion to grow in their relationship with God. Through a weekend of worship, learning, playing, and growing together, students take their next step in following Jesus and making Him known on their campus.

Chip Luter

Fred “Chip” Luter, III is a native of New Orleans, LA. He currently serves as the Senior Associate Pastor at Franklin Avenue Baptist Church under the leadership of his father, Fred Luter, Jr. At an early age, he accepted his calling to be a minister of the gospel of Christ.

Since accepting his calling, Chip has served in various capacities at a few different churches. At Concord Church in Dallas, he was the High School Pastor for 3 years. He then served for 5 years at Franklin Avenue as the Pastor of Youth and Young Adults. He then followed the call of God to serve at Idlewild Baptist Church for close to six years as the Campus Pastor of the Sulphur Springs campus in Tampa.

Chip has a strong passion for preaching and teaching the Word of God, as well as living out the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. Outside of ministry, Chip loves to root for his hometown sports teams along with enjoying great food and fellowship with family and friends.

Even though the Lord has blessed Chip to serve at amazing places of ministry, the greatest blessings are his wife, Jasmine, and their three precious children Fred, IV aka Drew, Zoe Grace, and Gabrielle Sierra.

Called to Ministry: Why is Seminary Important

Does everyone who feels called to ministry need to go to seminary? How do I choose which seminary to attend? What will a seminary degree equip me to do and how do I choose the right program for me? This session will explore all of those questions. Representatives from all 6 SBC seminaries will be present.

Called to Ministry: Ministry Roundtable

When you are exploring a call to ministry, it can be helpful to talk with people serving in a variety of ministry roles. This session will include men and women serving in a variety of ministry roles. You will have opportunity to meet them, learn about how they go to where they are in ministry, and ask questions.

Called to Ministry: Is God Calling Me?

How can you be sure if God is calling you to vocational ministry? This session will help you know how to hear God's voice and clarify if He is calling you to ministry.

Do you want your life to be all about success or one that is filled with great significance? So many people think the secret to a successful life is promotion, position, and greater personal expression. However, the real key is to find and live out your mission in life. As we seek to follow after Jesus and commit to aligning all we think, say, and act to that mission, it is important to steward well the time, talent, and resources God has given each of us.
