Spring Meeting 2020

Hello again!

We are looking forward to hosting the Missouri Independent Baptist Preachers Fellowship once again. When I get that chance to take a breath and slow down for a minute, I realize how little preaching I myself receive, and how much I need it.

Because the encouragement, correction and instruction has been so vital to my ability to pastor, it has always been my desire to create a meeting that does the same in every preacher’s life.

The pastors selected to preach this year are undoubtedly equipped with ability, experience and seriousness to help us to pastor the churches in which God has placed us. But greater than their qualifications is their evident walk with God. We as a church are praying that God will do such a work in your life at this meeting that you will glean from it for years to come! Please begin now to plan and pray for these services.

Monday night – 7:00 PM

  • Food and fellowship to follow

Spring Meeting 2019

Calvary Baptist Church | Nixa, MO | March 4-5

Dear Pastors and Workers,

Another meeting is upon us, and I am really looking forward to the messages, music and fellowship this month.

Even as I am just starting in the ministry, I have already been bombarded by many articles, messages and seminars with expert opinion on how to grow your church. Though the subject is appropriate, the opinions are many times unbiblical to say the least.

With this in mind, I wanted some men of God with great experience to remind us, and encourage us in the simplicity of church growth that works in any generation. Please be in prayer for our preachers for this meeting:

Brother Charles Elliott – Prayer

Brother C.R. Curtman – Compromise

Pastor Jeffrey Ables – Preaching

I have been thankful for these meetings, and look forward to the preaching, music, fellowship, and food. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Directions to the church can be found on our website. See you soon!

In Christ, Pastor Derek Eckels | 417-207-6158

  • Monday Night: 7:00 PM – food and fellowship to follow
  • Tuesday: Breakfast 7:30 AM, services begin at 9:00 AM.
  • Lunch will be served on Tuesday after the preaching.
