Phil Robertson – “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible,  George Washington, he said that.”

Alton Jones – “A lot of things have changed since winning the Classic, but of all that stuff, the things that matter the most, the things that really matter have not changed a bit.   First and Foremost is my relationship with Jesus Christ.”

David Morris - "But you know as much as I love hunting, that's not the most important thing in my life.  The most important thing in my life is my relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.   It took me a long time to come to that point."





“I know that even though we are not in a church tonight, that Jesus is here tonight, and that is the most important thing to me”



open to the entire community; approximately half of attendees are not members of FBC


friends and family come together for dinner and activities for all ages and outdoor interests


the importance of a personal relationship with Christ is a basis of the keynote speech



Many have heard a Christian testimony for the first time

Hundreds of Bibles have been distributed

Profession(s) of faith have been made

Funds raised for missions and youth

Community-wide involvement on our campus

Event to which friends and family can be easily invited

Volunteers become more connected with the church

Many of our members have found that this event makes it very easy for them to invite their friends and family to church.  The attendance at these events can easily be 50 to 60 percent guests (non-members).  This banquet allows us to witness to those that are not Christians in a fun and relaxed environment.

Scripture basis       Romans 10:14       14How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
