DUE TO SOME UNFORESEEN CONFLICTS THE DATE OF THE B21 EVENT IN MISSOURI HAS BEEN MOVED TO MONDAY, MAY 10.
Baptist21 will be putting on a mini-confernece in Missouri at the First Baptist Church of Arnold. We are grateful to FBC Arnold and Pastor Kenny Qualls for opening up their facilities to host this event.
What: A mini-conference covering the topics of men in the Church and men on mission.
Why: There seems to be a tendency for men in our culture to be complacent and take the path of ease, or to be grown children who are consumers and those who are limited on commitment. However, God’s mission calls them instead to something radically different, courage, commitment, and action. Come hear godly, experienced ministers lay out God’s mission for men, especially young men, in the world and in service to His Church.
When: Monday MAY 10 from Noon to 4pm
Where: First Baptist Church Arnold, Missouri (about 30 minutes from St. Louis, MO)
