Seminary Extension

 

The Seminary Extension Ministry has finished another very meaningful year of training for church leaders. The final course was "Introduction to Preaching" with 20 students participating. In each course, we had added new students and others have finished their eighth course for a certificate. We really enjoy the fellowship and atmosphere of learning new skills for ministry. Thank you for being our partner in missions at home.

 

 The 2018-2019 program will begin Monday night, August 20, 2018, at First Baptist Church in Starkville. This first course will be "Disciplines of the Christian Faith." For more information, contact Bill Duncan at 662-312-3792.

HOT COFFEE IN JESUS NAME

You still have an opportunity to send a cup of hot  coffee in Jesus’ name to the Middle East. This is a way for Chaplain Scott Edwards to minister to 400+ soldiers of the Mississippi Army National Guard. THANK YOU to everyone who has bought Keurig K-cups or sent money for purchasing K-cups. We will continue this mission opportunity for the duration of their deployment which is expected to be more than a year. Monies will be used for updated needs and shipment expenses, so please continue to give.
