2022 Annual Meeting

The Tri-Area Annual Meeting will be held on Saturday, October 15th, in Portales. The annual meeting will feature three different gatherings: one for kids, one for students and the main gathering for everyone else. We are asking churches to let us know which gatherings they plan on participating in and an estimated number they are bringing to participate by completing the registration form on our Tri-Area website. You may go there by clicking HERE.

Below is some detailed information on each of the three gatherings for our annual meeting.

In partnership with our state convention, Tri-Area will have as our special guest for our Kids On Mission Gathering, Kolby King of Thirty-Three Ministries. Kolby uses creative tools to share God’s Word such as illusions, ventriloquism, fire-eating and other stunts along with Biblical teaching to visually illustrate God’s truth. He has been featured in previous Young Lives Ablaze events put on by the BCNM and at both Inlow and Sivells children's camps.

The Kids On Mission Gathering will start at 4 p.m. and will meet in Calvary Portales' Fellowship Hall. It will conclude at 5 p.m. Churches are encouraged to take advantage of this special event to bring groups of kids to learn about living life on mission for Jesus and celebrate the Good News!

The Students On Mission Gathering is designed to bless the youth groups of our churches. The Students On Mission Gathering will take place on the same date and time as our annual meeting - 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 15th. It will conclude at 5 p.m.

This event will be hosted by University Baptist Church in Portales. Sam Swann with the BCNM, will be the guest speaker, and the youth worship band from Central Baptist in Clovis, led by Phillip Wright, will lead the worship. Tri-Area churches are encouraged to bring a group of youth to this special gathering to learn about living life on mission for God and to celebrate the Good News of Jesus!

The "Together on Mission Gathering" will be hosted this year by Calvary Baptist Church in Portales. This is the main session for our annual meeting, and everyone who isn't involved or have responsibilities related to the Kids On Mission or Students On Mission Gatherings are encouraged to attend.

We will take care of a little business, and then will be led in a time of singing praises to our God by Marshall Thrasher from Central Baptist in Clovis. After a time of singing together, Tar Henderson from our state convention will speak to us about church revitalization. Doors will open at 3:30 p.m. with displays being open for folks to visit with representatives of various ministries that partner with Tri-Area, with the program starting at 4 p.m. and concluding at 5 p.m.
