Arch Ministries held its seventh annual National Pastors’ Fellowship this January at Community Baptist Church in Bradenton, Florida. The event was scaled down quite a bit given our unique circumstances this year, but we were still thrilled to welcome over a hundred church planters, ministry leaders, pastors and their wives.

Three days of mutual edification, fellowship, and prayer focused on the theme "Being Encouraged Together" taken from Romans 1:11-12. It was definitely needed and appreciated after a difficult year.

One highlight of the event was a sacred concert performed by 9 student musicians from Grace Church of Mentor.

The Fellowship was supported by the staff of Community Baptist and 6 volunteers who made the trip down from Grace. A smaller team still was able to serve excellently, preparing and serving meals, shuttling pastors to and from the airport and hotel, and helping in countless other ways as needed.

The people of Grace Church allowed 2 pastors and 3 staff members to travel to Florida and supported the fellowship with special funds designated for the encouragement and networking of pastors. We are excited to see how God will continue to bless the fruit of these efforts!

Special thanks to Josiah Greenwood for taking pictures during the event.
