We pray that the amazing grace of our awesome God has been manifested in your ministry in an abundant fashion.
This message comes to announce the 70th Annual Session of the Baptist Missionary and Educational State Convention of Louisiana, Incorporated, which is slated for July 23-25, 2023 at 6:00 PM nightly. We will meet at the Bright Star Baptist Church located at 3330 Meriwhether Road in Shreveport where Patrick L. Dennis is pastor.
We recognize that these are interesting times for churches and conventions. We further recognize the mandate to do things differently. Thus, we are using this time to re-engage pastors and churches in fellowship. The truth is we need each other and we are better together.
On Sunday night, we will celebrate 15 years as president of this august body. The focus for Monday is missions as we seek to invest in pastors and churches that are struggling because of the pandemic.
Tuesday has been designated Youth and Young Adult Night. This event will feature a mass youth choir and recording artist Brent Jones. Rehearsals will take place on Thursday, July 20 and Tuesday, July 24 at Bright Star at 6 PM. Please inform your youth directors and have your young people in place.
As previously mentioned, we know times are different and we do not want this annual session to be financially cumbersome for our churches. Thus, there are no assessments. However, we are asking each church to register with ANY AMOUNT. Thank you in advance for your support. Remember – we are better together!
Dr. R. Timothy Jones
