The 10th annual Arch National Pastors Fellowship was held in Bradenton, FL, in January. Over 200 pastors, lay leaders, and their spouses attended.

The theme was "Faithful Things: Preparing Today for a Healthy Tomorrow," taken from 2 Timothy 2:2. All were encouraged by the preaching of God's Word, testimonies, times of prayer, and fellowship together.

The Fellowship was supported by the staff of Community Baptist and 20-some volunteers who made the trip down from Grace. They prepared and served meals, shuttled pastors to and from the airport and hotel (handling many flight delays caused by weather!), cared for children, and helping in countless other ways as needed.

The people of Grace Church allowed 4 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!
