Save the date… Go Day will be Sunday, October 20th right after morning worship in the Activities Building.
We will be doing things a little bit differently this year. Instead of Go Night as in years past, we will be having Go Day. During our morning worship service we will have the pleasure of hearing from Dr. John Marshall (see bio below). Following our regular time of worship, we are inviting everyone to go over to the Activities Building where we will have booths representing all of our mission partnerships located.
Throughout the booth fair you will be able to find out about all of our mission partners, future mission trips, and even sample some foods from the different places we go.
Make plans to attend this very special event!
Dr. John Marshall Bio
Dr. John Marshall has served 50 years in the gospel ministry. A native of southeast Missouri, Marshall is a sixth generation preacher who felt a call to the ministry at the age of 15. He is a graduate of Southeast Missouri State University and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. Marshall was the youngest man ever to earn a Doctor of Ministry degree from a Southern Baptist seminary (age 23). He has pastored churches in Missouri, Mississippi and Arkansas. Marshall became pastor of Second Baptist Church, Springfield, in 1995. During his pastoral tenure, the church was annually one of Missouri’s leading churches in baptisms, as well as the state’s largest contributor to the Cooperative Program. Nationally known as a mission-minded church, Second Baptist has given $2.6 million to plant 51 new churches in the US in the past seven years. After 22 years as Second Baptist’s pastor, Dr. Marshall retired from full-time ministry and is now enjoying time with family and serving as an interim pastor.
