2014 Annual Mission Conference: March 7 – 9
Join Us at the Decatur Campus!
This is one of the most exciting weekend events we have at FBC – Our 2014 conference will be the 29th year of meeting together. At the conference we meet and get to know our missionaries on a personal level. Our speaker this year will be Sanders L. (Sandy) Willson, Senior Minister of Second Presbyterian Church, Memphis, Tennessee.
Sandy is a co-founder of Memphis Center for Urban Theological Studies; a co-founder and chair of NEXUS, a leadership mentoring program; co-founder and chair of the Memphis Shalom Project, a unified evangelical ministry, and a founder of Re-formed Ministries Network, a church planting ministry. He serves on the Gospel Coalition board and on the Board of Reference for Union University and Reformed Theological Seminary.
Internationally, Sandy ministers with partners in Africa, Asia, South America, and the Middle East and speaks regularly in churches on the topic of world missions. He served on the Board of Directors for World Relief for several years.
Sandy received a B.S. from the University of Virginia, an M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and a D.D. from Crichton College in Memphis, Tennessee.
Sandy and his wife, Allison, were married in 1972 and are grateful for five children, three daughters-in-law, a son-in-law, and seven grandchildren.

Why are we expanding our ministry to the community of Madison? Because of the mission statement that has guided us for 21 years. Our mission is to glorify God by helping people know, love, obey, and exalt Jesus Christ. For years we have been doing just that for people in Decatur, Hartselle, and Priceville. Not to mention Moldova, Ukraine, Serbia, Ireland, Spain, Taiwan, Syria, Guatemala, Mexico…you get the idea. Now we want to extend the knowledge of Jesus Christ to our neighbors in Madison.
Isn’t there already a Bible Church in Madison? Yes. We know we are not the “first” Bible Church in Madison. That distinction belongs to our good friends at Madison Bible Church on Hughes Road (visit their website). When contemplating a campus in Madison, we even considered changing the name we have had since 1965 to avoid confusion. But the leadership of Madison Bible Church graciously encouraged us to retain our original name. Without reservation, we commend them as partners in the gospel.
