  • NOVEMBER 30 - Executive Board Meeting
  • DECEMBER 7 - Kika and Anungla Jamir, DBA missionaries and church planters among refugees. Through English classes, consistent “ministry of presence” and meeting needs, God has started 9 congregations in Dallas and Fort Worth through the Jamirs’ work. Now new churches are also starting in several other states. Come hear about “pickle discipleship” and “hog evangelism.” 
  • DECEMBER 14 - Leonard Hatcher, pastor of Oasis Baptist Church in Dallas, will be speaking on community ministry.

Due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in Dallas County, we have decided to not have the “in person” option for our Monday lunch meetings between now and the end of the year. The Pastors/Leaders Conference and the Executive Board meetings will be entirely on Zoom. The meeting time for these Monday meetings during Nov/Dec will move to 11:00 a.m. With our new bylaws, our Executive Board can conduct our business electronically.
