The world evolves; the Word never changes.

However, delivery methods must adapt in order to be effective. In our years of ministry, we have sought to think “outside” the proverbial box. At the same time, we have been guided by biblical truth opposed to popular trends. Staying true to the Gospel is the only way to give people what they really need.

The 2018 BEYOND! Conference will challenge attendees to find creative ways to meet people where they are and lead them higher in ministry and in business.

This conference is hosted by First Baptist Church of Glenarden, a thriving and dynamic ministry, where John K. Jenkins Sr. serves as the Senior Pastor.
