A Report on the WFBC Annual Meeting

The Wisconsin Fellowship of Baptist Churches held its 71st annual meeting this Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 20 and 21, at the Bible Baptist Church of Hudson.

I was an exhibitor for The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry at this meeting, and spent the two days interacting with many of the roughly 130 people in attendance—mostly pastors and wives from independent Baptist churches throughout Wisconsin.

The WFBC represents 111 fellowshipping churches—which includes both member churches (the majority) and churches with member pastors. I have spoken in a number of these churches in my service with The Friends of Israel. Further, the church of which I am a member, Fellowship Baptist Church in Watertown—which ordained and commissioned me to serve with The Friends of Israel—is one with a pastor who is an individual member of the WFBC. Thus, I obviously have an interest in this meeting, and have attended it each year that I have been involved with The Friends of Israel.

The theme of this year’s conference was “Great Commission Living in 21st-Century Culture,” with a theme verse of 2 Timothy 3:1.

The featured speaker was Mark Herbster, associate professor and dean of the college of Bible and church ministries, as well as seminary dean, at Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown. Herbster shared three messages from the New Testament epistles—speaking on Philippians, 2 Timothy and 1 Peter.
