It was my privilege to moderate last year’s Southwide Baptist Fellowship in Raleigh, NC. God gave us a very special meeting and real encouragement from His Word. (You may watch the 2021 messages here.) Now, we are just over 10 weeks away from the 2022 meeting!

Pastor Tim Rabon is serving as this year’s moderator, and Pastor Kenny Kuykendall is serving as the host pastor and vice moderator. These men are Spirit-filled men and will do a wonderful job of leading our gathering on October 10-12. The meeting will be held at the Cross Roads Baptist Church in Lawrenceville, GA.

This year’s theme is “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord” (1 Corinthians 15:58). We know that the Bible messages, Christ-honoring music, seasons of prayer, and time of fellowship with other Christian workers will be a great refreshment to all who come. I hope you will plan to bring your family and others from your church family.
