BGCM Annual Meeting

I am very excited about the Annual Meeting of the Baptist General Convention of Missouri at Fee Fee Baptist Church on April 4-5, 2008. We have a great program planned. Our theme is Faith in Action: Making the Most of Every Opportunity. The Opening Session will feature messages by Dr. Scott Harrison, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church in Lee's Summit, Missouri, and by Dr. Wallace S. Hartsfield, retired Senior Pastor of Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church of Kansas City, Missouri and Vice President-at-Large of the National Baptist Convention of America, Inc.

The Evening Celebration Friday evening will feature messages by Dr. William R. O'Brien, Co-Director, BellMitra Associates, Frisco, TX, and former Executive Vice President of the Foreign Mission Board and by Dr. Ronald L. Bobo, Sr., Senior Pastor, West Side Missionary Baptist Church, St. Louis, and past president of the Baptist World Alliance Youth Department.

The Closing Session on Saturday morning will feature Convention & Institutional Reports, the President's Address by Dr. Harlan Spurgeon of Springfield, Missouri, and a message by Dr. William R. O'Brien. Our Missions Banquet is a special part of the BGCM Annual Meeting as we celebrate our mission partnerships.

Dr. William J. Shaw was originally scheduled to speak Friday afternoon and evening; however, he will not be able to be present due to an international flight schedule problem as he returns from the Sudan. We are delighted to have Dr. Hartsfield and Dr. Bobo speaking at our Annual Meeting. Dennis Goskie, our Worship Leader, has enlisted a broad range of gifted musicians and three choirs to participate in the sessions. I believe we will have a great meeting. For more information including posters and a copy of the provisional program check out Annual Meeting.
