Expressions of concern may be sent to People’s Bible Church, Rt. 12-State Park Road, Greenville, SC 29609.

Mission 150

The time for Mission 150 is drawing near. There is still need for prayerful and financial support. A special double issue of the Founders Journal will be mailed to every pastor in the SBC. We also hope to be able to include seminary and college professors, as well as missionaries and denominational executives. If resources are provided for all of these groups, the total mailing will approach 5060,000 pieces. Arrangements have been made to offer a free copy of the Forgotten Spurgeon to every respondent who subscribes to the journal. Those desiring to contribute to this effort should designate their gifts to Mission 150 in care of the Founders Journal. Further information may be obtained by contacting the editor.
