Wednesday Evening Breakouts, September 26, 7:00 pm

 
Why not RIGHT NOW? Every individual in the body of Christ has the opportunity and responsibility to be actively involved in God’s Great Commission work. The following breakout sessions will provide you with plenty of practical opportunities to get involved as you learn more about the personnel, goals, and values of HBC’s missions strategy.
