BATON ROUGE – Let’s reach Louisiana with the gospel, proclaimed Dr. David Hankins, to 600 area Baptists gathered at First Baptist in Baton Rouge for the “Total Church Life Leadership Conference,” held on Saturday, Aug. 24.
“We were right at 600,” said Rev. Tommy Middleton, director of missions for the Baptist Association of Greater Baton Rouge, one of the event’s sponsors. That total included more than 500 participants, 35 seminar presenters and dozens of First Baptist volunteers. “We’re very pleased with the turnout.”
