Our American Baptist family from across the state joined for Christ-centered fellowship, worship, and equipping for ministries and mission. 2017 begins our journey under the vision, Together Living Faithfully Through Christ Today, responding to the imperatives of rootedness, collaboration, growth, and transformation, and inspired by Ephesians 3:18-19. This year's Annual Gathering focused on Rootedness.

Story Telling Event – PRMBC

On February 11, 2017, CENTRAL Wisconsin held a Story Telling event, hosted by Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church.  These stories were the culmination of work for a course taught at the seminary in the Fall of 2016 and Winter 2017.

We now have these stories gathered together and linked here on YouTube.

Here’s the whole PLAYLIST.

Here’s each video, referenced by the story teller:

Amos Green  “165 Years Old … and Still Growing”

Darlene Turner-Harper “A Gift of Encouragement”

Reggie Ivy  “What God has Joined Together”

Delores Wilkins  “The Vision Unfolds”

Carolyn Parker  “Taking Care of Ms Taylor”

Brice Smith  “How She Got Here: The 170-Year Progressive Call of Underwood”

Kendrick Allen  “Pioneers of Faith”


Many thanks to our Story Tellers.  Thanks also to Dallas Flippin who filmed the stories and prepared the video for publishing.
