Around the State

‘Around The State’ is a segment in our eMagazine that goes out bi-weekly to our email subscriber list. In this segment, which will appear in the last issue of each month, we feature churches’ staff changes, as well as church news and big announcements you send us. We want Arkansas Baptists to know what’s going on around the state and be able to celebrate together and encourage each other.

Here are some news and updates from “Around the State.” 

  • Friendship Baptist Church in Mariana has called Bro. Paul Jackson to be their pastor!
  • Hot Springs Baptist Church is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. Manley Beasley Jr. is also celebrating being their pastor for 15 years!
