Express Thanks to Faithful ServantsGARBC Logo

Do you know a dedicated and faithful pastor and wife or layperson who has gone the extra mile in serving the Lord in the local church? While the Lord is the one Who commends, we have the opportunity to thank these dedicated servants while they are on earth. Every June the GARBC honors faithful servants at the Annual Conference and in the Baptist Bulletin. Won’t you nominate someone you love and admire for his or her work’s sake? You can nominate individuals for the GARBC Service Award online or by downloading a nomination form.
