Youth  Ministries  Board                                                            

Our Youth Ministries Board oversees the youth activities of our state in several annual venues.

They sponsor the Annual SCM (Student and Children's Ministries) Music and Arts Festival. This event includes competition in Bible, Music, Drama and Art. Over 100 students compete for the opportunity to represent Missouri churches in the National SCM Competition. This is a highlight of the National Association of the Free Will Baptist annual meeting each year in July.

They also sponsor the E-3 Conference (formerly State Youth Retreat) held each November at Windermere Retreat Center at Roach, MO. Located on the Lake of the Ozarks, the retreat features nationally known speakers and musicians for the students of Missouri and neighboring states.

Their board members are:

   Ryan Akers, Chairman          

   Jane Parker, Treasurer

   Seth Moon

   Tommy Jones

   Caleb Milling
