The staff and faculty of the First Baptist Church of Hammond and Hyles- Anderson College would like to invite all pastors, ministry leaders, laymen, and ladies to an intensive training forum, discussing helps in church ministry. This event will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Monday,    October 2, with an encouraging music and preaching service in the Jack Hyles Memorial Auditorium.
An all-day, intensive forum will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 3. The forum will end that evening with Christ-honoring music presented by the Hyles-Anderson College Music Department and an inspirational service. There is no charge for this forum. All you will need to do is register and attend. We pray you will leave this time with your heart stirred, your mind challenged, and your resource bag equipped for an effective service for our Lord Jesus, regardless of the size or location of your ministry.
All those staying through Wednesday morning are encouraged to attend classes and chapel at Hyles-Anderson College. All forum guests are invited to attend a Leaders’ Fellowship with Pastor Wilkerson and staff, as well as a Ladies’ Tea, hosted by Mrs. Wilkerson and FBC ladies.
