JPBC will host the seventh annual Evangelical Forum meeting the weekend of September 26-27.

This conference is primarily aimed at those serving as Pastor, Elders, and Teachers. We will have Pastors and laymen visiting from sister congregation in the area and around the state. The conference is open, however, to anyone who wishes to attend. There is no cost to attend.
