Be inspired by stories of how God is at work around the world at Immanuel Baptist Church in Princeton, WV! Everything you experience at this event, from plenaries to breakouts, is designed to assist you in your journey of spiritual growth and fulfilling the mission of God.
This year, we will have two events: our annual WMU Mission Celebration on Friday and Saturday, and IMPACT, a new event tailored for middle and high school girls on Saturday.

Todd and Susan Lafferty, former IMB missionaries, will be our guest speakers. Todd serves as executive vice president for the International Mission Board. Susan is a writer and posts weekly at susanlafferty.com.
