2017 BMA of Arkansas State Meeting

Just Around the Corner

By Ron Fields, President, BMA of Arkansas

The annual meeting of the BMA of Arkansas is just around the corner (Nov. 2-3), and all churches are encouraged to send messengers to represent them this year. Not only will you hear reports from our departments and their plans for the future, you have an opportunity for input into those departments.

Central Baptist College will host the meeting again this year. They are always gracious hosts and the facilities are very adequate. It is always impressive to meet on campus and to see the progress in buildings and in student growth.

Plans are underway to provide breakout sessions again this year. Your officers are excited about providing helpful and hopefully encouraging sessions to make your presence worthwhile.
