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.

Calendar Update

The Spring Meeting will be hosted by Berean Baptist Church in Strafford on April 24-25, not on March 6-7 as listed on the calendar page earlier. We apologize for this error. More information to follow.

Winter Meeting 2016

We are excited to be hosting the winter meeting of the Missouri Baptist Preachers next month. It is our desire that you will come, be encouraged through the fellowship and preaching, and help us celebrate a very special year here at Tabernacle Baptist Church. We have been celebrating several important milestones this year. Early in the year, on February 21st, we celebrated the 75th anniversary of the start of Tabernacle Baptist Church. Then on March 21st, we celebrated the 45th anniversary of the Free Day Away, ministering to the soldiers of Fort Leonard Wood. When August 18th arrived, we celebrated yet another anniversary – the start of Tabernacle Christian Academy, our Christian school, which has ministered to hundreds of young people over the last 35 years.

As a part of this yearlong celebration, we have invited former members back to share in these celebrations. Nearly ever special event this year has included a return visit from a former member that was either on staff or grew up here and is now serving the Lord in full time ministry. It has been a very blessed time as we reconnected or rejoiced with each of them about what God has done or is doing in their lives.

In keeping with the theme of our anniversary this year, all four of our speakers will be individuals who grew up here or were on staff here at Tabernacle.

Rocky Harrill, pastor of Tulsa Baptist Temple, Tulsa OK, will be preaching on Tuesday morning. Pastor Harrill was saved while here at TBC, graduated from TCA in 1984, and served on staff at TBC for 3 1/2 years. After serving here in Lebanon, he accepted the call to pastor Faith Baptist Church, Johnson, KS. After ministering there for several years, he was called to be the pastor of Tulsa Baptist Temple, where he has now served for 17 years. He also serves as a part time teacher at Heartland Baptist Bible College where he teaches Baptist History and Baptist Distinctives.

Cliff Mizer, pastor of First Baptist Church, Englewood, CO, will also be preaching on Tuesday morning. Pastor Mizer was saved here in Lebanon and served on staff for six years. Pastor Mizer then left to pastor Bible Baptist Church in Cassville, MO. After a fruitful ministry in Missouri, he was called to be the pastor of First Baptist Church in Englewood, where he has ministered for the last 16 years. The church is the home of Silver State Youth Camp and hosts the Dennis Brown Memorial Church Planting Conference every spring.

Darren Myers, evangelist and founder of Freedom Focus Ministry, will be preaching on Tuesday. Bro. Myers grew up at TBC, graduated from TCA,and served on staff for twelve years. After serving in Lebanon, he accepted the call to pastor Landmark Baptist Church in Rolla, MO. In January of 2015, he went into full time evangelism with Freedom Focus Ministry. Darren, Tammy, and their son Daniel are excited to use their years of ministry experience to assist local churches to reach America. Through preaching, teaching, singing, and multimedia presentations, they desire to bring the truths of freedom alive for this generation.

John Wilkerson, pastor of First Baptist Church, Hammond, IN, will preach Monday night. Pastor Wilkerson and his family attended TBC and TCA in the early 1980’s. Throughout his ministry, Pastor Wilkerson has served the Lord as a Christian school teacher and principal, has pastored the First Baptist Church of Long Beach, CA, a church that saw substantial growth while he was there, and is currently serving his fourth year as the pastor in Hammond. I am very excited about and thankful for the good reports that I hear about this historic church.

I hope you will plan to spend December 12-13 with us. The meeting starts at 7:00 PM Monday night. If you will come, I promise that you will enjoy great food, encouraging fellowship, and the power of God on your life through the preaching of His Word.

If we can assist you in planning your visit to Lebanon, please feel free to call the church.

Serving Together,

Donald R. Ball

Fall Meeting 2016


Do you sometimes feel like a basket case? I believe we can help you with that! The rigors of the ministry can often make us feel like we are coming unraveled and in need of help. Last October, during our meeting here in Houston, MO, Pastor Don Ball preached a powerful message from Acts chapter 9 titled, “You Never Know Who’s in the Basket.” He read how the disciples worked together to lower Saul down the wall in a basket to safety. Next, he made application by explaining we all have need of “baskets” from time-to-time when the enemy is out to destroy us. Then, he gave testimony of people in his life that offered baskets to carry him through difficult experiences in his life. He concluded by exhorting us to look for and get into baskets offered by the disciples around us so that we can endure. He also admonished us of our responsibility to offer baskets to others who are vulnerable to attack.

I want to offer you, your family, staff, and members of your church, a basket this October 3-4, 2016. Our church is praying, preparing, and providing for a great meeting. Through singing, praying, preaching, and fellowship, we want to offer a basket of encouragement and strength to help you overcome the enemies of your ministry. We also want to be a part of God’s comfort and healing if you are hurting. Please make every effort to come, and bring those close companions around you that need a basket as much (or maybe more) than you do. Your wife needs fellowship with other Pastor’s wives, your children will enjoy interaction with other preacher’s kids, your staff will benefit from the spirit and excitement of the meeting, and I believe your members will walk away with a blessing too.

Another reason I need you to come is that I need help preparing the basket. It took all the disciples working together to lower Saul to safety. You might be able to reach out and help someone that I could not reach out and help myself. I also know that your presence will be an inspiration to our church folks.

If fuel and/or hotel expense is more than you can afford, WE WANT TO HELP! Just let me know what the need is and our church will take care of it. I mean it! Don’t you dare let finances (or pride) keep you from getting into the basket. If you will let us help, call me at (417) 260-4683. I promise to be discreet. We are also offering a free round of golf again this year if you want to come early or stay late.

I will be looking for you in October,

David Barbee

Winter Meeting 2015


Dear Preachers,

“But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger then men.” (1 Corinthians 1:24-25)

We need the Power of God and the Wisdom of God. We know that both are the Lord Jesus Christ. I have not seen one of the meetings this year fail to bring out Power and Wisdom in me through exhortation and encouragement. That helps me fulfill God’s verse for me, (“And they glorified God in me,” Galatians 1:24) to the people God has me pastoring.

So I want to invite you, your family, and anyone else you would like to bring to the Missouri Independent Baptist Preachers Meeting we are hosting December 14th and 15th. We feel privileged to get to do this and want to treat you to a great time to revive and refresh. But we can’t treat you to a great time if you don’t come. So you lose and we lose! Well, you ought to just come then and save a lot of grief!

As times get darker these meetings are important to preachers and for churches to host them. I want this church to know there are still courageous separated unto God men, doing the work.

Continuing the Harvest,

Pastor Jim Mackey
