BMA News & Information
Pastor's Conference to be a Celebration
The annual Pastors' and Laymen's Conference at the BMAA National Meeting in Little Rock will be a time of celebration for the amazing things God is doing through the ministry of the BMA, according to DiscipleGuide Conference Director, Donny Parrish.
"For the past several years our BMA leaders have been stressing to us the need to plant new churches, make disciples and to meet our culture head-on," said Parrish. "DiscipleGuide has brought in speakers from around the nation to help us understand how to meet this challenge. This year, we thought you might like to hear how those efforts are paying off."
The conference will feature several BMA Church Planters from the US and around the world sharing short snapshots (none longer than 10 minutes) of people whose lives are being changed by the gospel, and by the ministries of the BMA. Participants will have the opportunity to meet many of these folks by video.
"If it's true that people become what they celebrate, we want to be sure and celebrate making disciples," said Parrish.
The Pastor's Conference is slated for Tuesday, April 29 at 10 a.m. in the main ballroom of the Statehouse Convention Center. The conference is an annual event of the BMAA National Meeting and is sponsored by DiscipleGuide Church Resources.

Missionary Wade Allen Resigns
Wade Allen, BMAA missionary to The Philippines for the past 12 years, will return to the U.S. with his family this summer. The missionary explained that during his 2013 furlough to the U.S., his heart was burdened because of the struggles he saw facing many American churches. He stated, "My family and I love The Philippines and the ministry God has allowed us to be a part of, but God has been working in our lives and is steering us in a new and different direction in ministry." Allen requests prayers for his family through their time of transition.
