SOC Missions Southern Region Convention – 2019

April 16-19, 2019

Patterson, Louisiana


We, here at Bethel Pentecostal Fellowship are both humbled and honored to host this School of Christ International Missions Convention for 2019. It is our church’s desire to serve you in any and every capacity during this God ordained time together in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We welcome you with open arms and make ourselves available to you. We are here for you. If you need anything please do not hesitate to ask. We have been, and are praying for our days together and expect to be changed, challenged, and directed from above in what we believe to be the end-time harvest!

In Christ,

Marty Harden-Pastor


We, The School of Christ International, staff, directors, friends and supporters want to thank and express our profound appreciation to Pastor Marty Harden and his church congregation for their invitation to host these Special Missionary Services. They have provided this ministry with every amenity and tireless personal assistance for the success of this convention. We pray that God will bless them above measure for this assistance in our continuing ministry to “…preach the gospel to every creature.”

A critical consideration for the School of Christ Annual Convention is who to invite to minister and be the speakers in both the morning and evening services. (Many are able and qualified, but since there is a limited time, whom should we invite is most important). Realizing the great importance of this decision, we pray and have times of fasting and prayer, asking God to give us His Mind and Will to ask only those that would be His choice for this most important ministry. Long before convention time, even before inviting ministers, we ask God to speak to them that will be invited to preach, giving them the message they will preach to God’s people in these services.

I feel God answered those prayers and led me to invite Brother Lee Shipp, pastor of the First New Testament Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to be our evening minister at 7:00 PM Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I invited two ministers for our 10:00 AM services Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Brother Charles Rose, from Jolo, West Virginia, pastor of the Family Worship Center, will preach Wednesday and Thursday and host pastor, Brother Marty Harden, of Bethel Pentecostal Fellowship, will minister in the Friday morning service.

We have prepared for this convention and are confident everything is in the will of God. God has ordained this conference and its preparation for you and the other attendees. This is more than a series of meetings, we believe this is a chosen time of God to speak to His people and direct their lives for this closing moment in the history of God’s eternal work.

Make the sacrifice to surrender yourself to these few days of prayer, worship, singing and the Anointed Preaching of the Word of God. This could mark an eternal and effectual change in your life for God.

SOC President
