Still Time to Submit Application for GARBC FellowshipGARBC-blue-logo-150x150
Every June, the GARBC receives churches into the fellowship. If your church is not in the GARBC, we warmly welcome you to consider fellowshipping in the association. Not only does fellowshipping in the GARBC provide mutual support and a united voice for truth, but also, benefits such as IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status through the national association and grants and loans through Baptist Builders Club are available to your church. To introduce the association to your church, the GARBC staff can provide materials for distribution to your church family and can guide you through the application process. For pastors already in GARBC churches, please invite pastoral colleagues and their churches to fellowship in the association. Together we can accomplish more!
