Greetings in the Name of the Lord:

You are invited to a once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate the past, present, and future of our region all in just three days.

  • On Thursday, September 15, we will celebrate our Region's Fiftieth Anniversary with lots of reminiscing.  We will have a special guest speaker - Rev. Dr. Frank Frischkorn, former ABCOPAD Regional Executive Pastor - as part of the evening program.
  • On Friday, September 16, we will be showcasing numerous churches across our two-state region, not only telling you during the plenary times WHAT they are doing missionally, but then, during workshop times to follow, they will tell you HOW they did it and how your church can too. (Downloadable list of workshops.)  We will have multiple churches of various sizes and settings for both the morning and afternoon sessions. Oh, and there will be a seminar on Baptist History and another one on Living and Leaving a Legacy.
  • On Saturday, September 17, during the morning hours leading up to our closure at noon, there will be a formal presentation made by our region's vision team about the proposed structure and staffing, and what that looks like moving into our future.

There will be special meals and special music throughout our time together, the first time together in four years. You are not going to want to miss a moment of this year's Biennial Leadership Conference. You'll be glad you'll be able to say later, you were there! (You don't later want to be someone saying you wish you had attended!)
