Plan now to be with us March 6-7 in Gulfport, Mississippi for the Spring 2009 Chaplains Conference. We have lined up a great group of speakers and are planning a special tour of Beauvoir - the last home of Jefferson Davis. Arrangements are in the works to take you to Ship Island on Friday. Ship Island is a very interesting place and you will benefit from the one hour boat ride and tour of the island and Fort Massachusetts.

Our Chaplains Conferences are great times of spiritual refreshing and great fellowship. The special tour of Beauvoir is Friday at 5 p.m.

The Saturday meeting will be in the conference room of the Ramada Inn beginning at 9:30 Saturday morning.

The subjects / speakers for the Chaplains Conference:

Dr. Charles Blair, "Copperheads"
