Summer Meeting 2018

Greetings Brethren,

It is our privilege to host a time of fellowship and refreshment for God’s servants. The meeting here in Springfield will be on June 11 & 12. On Monday evening, following the service, we will have finger foods and desserts. On Tuesday morning, we will have a make-your-own Breakfast Sandwich buffet. After the preaching has concluded, we will be having a fish fry for lunch with all the sides and desserts to go with it. (There will also be chicken for those who do not care for fish.)

Most important is the preaching of God’s Word. During the meeting, we will be hearing from Bro. Bill Marshall, Bro. John England, Bro. Carl Boonstra, and Bro. Paul Gentry.

Bro. Bill Marshall is pastor of the newly renamed Riverside Baptist Church in St. Joseph, MO. He has been their pastor now for 10 years and God is blessing the church.

Bro. John England pastored the Ozark Baptist Temple for many years before God led he and his wife, Mary to start the Black River Bible Baptist Church in Williamsville, MO. God has been blessing this work tremendously. They have seen many saved and baptized and are in the process of getting their own property and place of worship. On Easter Sunday, they had 54 in attendance. Though that might sound like a small number to some, how many churches can say they had over 16% of their city’s population in their church on Sunday morning?

Bro. Carl Boonstra is a statesman for the cause of Christ and missions to local churches around the world. I am always challenged and stirred to here this man of God recount the former days but with a prodding to look into the future at what God wants to do through us.

Bro. Paul Gentry has been pastoring the Harvest Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon, Washington since 2008 up until just recently when the Lord led he and his family back to the Midwest. In March, Bro. Gentry accepted the call to pastor Tulsa Baptist Temple in Oklahoma. The Gentry family has ties to South Campbell Ave. Baptist Church dating back to the late 90’s. After God has used him and his influence to see numerous works established in the Northwest, we are glad to welcome him back home.

There are many fine hotels in Springfield, each with varying rates. If you would like assistance finding a hotel in your price range or whether or not a hotel has a good reputation, please call the church at 417-862-8471.

We look forward to seeing you in June! God Bless!

Pastor Joe Decker, Jr.

Spring Meeting 2018

Dear Preacher,
United Baptist Church is thrilled to host the Missouri Independent Baptist Preacher’s Meeting March 26th & 27th.  I hope you can make it.  As I see it there are two glaring problems with this Preachers Meeting:
1.     This letter is VERY late, and you don’t have much time to clear your schedule.
2.     The March meeting is normally the Monday & Tuesday after the first Sunday in March.
As a pastor, the only thing I hate more than hearing excuses is giving excuses.  But sometimes we face things beyond our control.  Having agreed to host the meeting well over a year ago I had no idea it would come during a time we did have a church building.  This coupled with a severe concussion I suffered while trying to find a place we could meet has resulted in this late notice.
I hope, in spite of this late notice, God intervenes and opens the door for you and many other pastors to be able to attend.  I realize the load that pastors bear and the time which it requires.  We are excited about being a blessing to you, but we can’t be if you don’t come!
God has laid on my heart to ask three men to preach that have a very close connection to United Baptist Church.  God’s hand is upon of each of the men preaching.  My prayer is that each of us will be changed by the preached Word!  These two days of preaching should prove to be a challenge, encouragement and help to your life and ministry.  
Our speakers are:
  Evangelist Jim Van Gelderen – He has held 6 Revival Campaigns in the 14 years I have pastored United Baptist.  God has always greatly used his preaching.  God has clearly directed that he would have a regular influence in our church and I know his preaching will help and encourage you!
  Pastor Matt Dedmon – Was sent out of United Baptist to plant Heritage Baptist Church on the east side of Springfield in 2012.  God has always used his preaching in our church and I know it will be a blessing to you!
  Pastor Stan Metts – Bro. Metts serves as the Pastor Emeritus at United Baptist.  He has served the Lord for over 50 years as a Missionary in Ethiopia, a Church planter in Connecticut, and a Pastor in Macon, MO.  Pastor Emeritus is a position of honor and he and his wife, Wilda, are both honored and loved by United Baptist Church.  I know you will love his preaching and be instructed by the wisdom God has blessed him with!
Schedule will be as follows:
Monday  7:30 pm  Preaching              
 Tuesday 8:00 am   Breakfast – Fellowship to follow                                
  9:00 am   Preaching                                                          
 12:00 pm Lunch
                                                                               
PLESE NOTE – We no longer have our former church building.  We are meeting at a borrowed building, because of that the meeting is at 7:30 pm Monday night
 
The place of meeting for both Monday & Tuesday is:
 
SRCC Event Center
6448 W. State Hwy. EE
Springfield, MO 65802
 
His Servant & Yours,
Steven B. Brudnak
Pastor

Winter Meeting 2017

Dear pastors and workers,

Another Preacher’s Fellowship Meeting is upon us, and I must say we are a little apprehensive.

Calvary Baptist Church in Nixa has been scheduled for this meeting for over a year. This will be our first meeting to host, and will be my first meeting to host as the pastor. Needless to say our church is very excited and is looking forward to being a blessing to pastors and workers. I am so new that I have no great words of aged wisdom; but I have already realized how much I personally need to be preached to after spending week in and week out preaching to others. It is no trite statement when I say my prayer is that this meeting is life changing. I would that you would pray with me to that end.

I have been praying about who to have preach this meeting, and I am confident God has brought the right men for this meeting. Please pray for the following preachers who have been praying and preparing to preach.

C.R. Curtman
Cornerstone Baptist Church
Wildwood, MO

Wes Stewart

Spring Meeting 2017

Dear Preacher,

We are excited to be hosting the Spring 2017 MO Baptist Preacher’s Fellowship Meeting. It will be held April 24 and 25. Services will begin Monday evening at 7:00 PM with a dessert fellowship to follow. Tuesday services will start at 9:00 AM with lunch following the preaching. The preachers we will be hearing from at this meeting include Bro. Joe Decker, Jr., Bro. Jason Tucker, and Bro. Jerry Pyle.

It has come to my attention that there might be some confusion about the month in which this meeting is to be held. It will be in April, not March. I am sorry for any miscommunication on this matter.

Berean Baptist Church is excited about ministering to you at this meeting. I am looking forward to seeing you here and to the time of fellowship. Let me know if you have any needs or questions.

Sincerely,

Shane Hughes
Berean Baptist Church
Strafford, MO

Calendar Update
